Cowboys schedule visit with USC tackle
By Calvin Watkins
NEW ORLEANS -- While free agency and potential roster moves remain on hold, the Cowboys are busy with the draft and have scheduled a visit with USC tackle Tyron Smith for early April.
Smith is one of several players the Cowboys might draft with the No. 9 pick overall.
Nebraska's Prince Amukamara is another player projected to Dallas in the first round.
The Cowboys are in the process of scheduling a visit with Baylor guard Danny Watkins, but a date hasn't been determined. It's not known if Watkins can quality under the 30 mandatory visits from college players or if he can attend Valley Ranch on Dallas Day when area players meet with team officials.
Scouts Inc. has Watkins ranked No. 1 at his position and 35 overall.
Here's what Scouts Inc. said about him regarding toughness:
Works to the whistle. Plays with an edge and can get under opponent's skin. Plays with a mean streak and looks to put defenders on their back. Didn't back down from challenges at the Senior Bowl.
