According to the agent for Dez Bryant, the Oklahoma State wide receiver will be visiting with the Cowboys sometime before the draft. But the Cowboys rarely take a wide receiver in the first round, writes the Dallas Morning News' Todd Davis. Also visiting the Cowboys: Penn State linebackers Sean Lee and Navorro Bowman and Kentucky fullback John Conner.
The DMN's Gerry Fraley points out, as of Thursday, the Dallas Cowboys are one of just three teams that "have not signed a restricted or unrestricted free agent from another club or re-signed a free-agent from last season's team."
