NFL Draft Rumors: Cowboys Starting To Finalize Prospect Visiting List

Each year, NFL teams are allowed to bring in 30 national prospects to their training facilities for a visit, as well as an unlimited amount of players considered local prospects, either by growing up in that city or playing in a local college.

While the exact lists won't be finalized until next week, the names of a good number of players scheduled to visit the Dallas Cowboys have leaked out:

National Prospects
Player Pos. School Proj. Round
Dre Kirkpatrick CB Alabama 1
Michael Brockers DT LSU 1
Amini Silatolu OG Midwestern State 2
Ronnell Lewis OLB Oklahoma 2
Casey Hayward CB Vanderbilt 3-4
Chris Greenwood CB Albion 7-UDFA
Lionel Smith CB Texas A&M UDFA
Ronald Leary OG Memphis UDFA
Chase Baker NT Boise State UDFA
Korey Toomer ILB Idaho UDFA
Local Prospects invited for Dallas Days
Player Pos. School Proj. Round
Keenan Robinson LB Texas 3-4
Jeff Fuller WR Texas A&M 4-5
Emmanuel Acho LB Texas 5
Tank Carder LB TCU 6
Ron Brooks CB LSU 6
Nathan Dick QB Central Arkansas UDFA

Over the last few years, the list of the players the Cowboys have brought in has corresponded fairly well with the players they end up drafting. The last first-round pick Dallas didn't bring for a pre-draft visit was DeMarcus Ware in 2005.
