SilverStarDigest.com has already reported on several early-to-mid round draft prospects that the Cowboys have shown interest in this week in Mobile, and today we introduce you to two more.
On Tuesday, Dallas' interests lied in multiple areas, with both Bill Parcells and Jerry Jones closely watching quarterbacks early in the practice, before their scouts went over to talk to wide receiver Roddy White, of the University of Alabama Birmingham.
White, standing in at 6-feet-2 inches tall, caught a mind-boggling 71 catches for 1452 yards and 14 touchdowns this past season for the Blazers.
His receiving yardage total established a Conference USA record while his average (121.7) ranked No. 2 nationally during the regular season. In fact, he was the only receiver in the nation averaging better than 20 yards per reception who caught more than 60 passes.
White, a native of Charleston, SC, had seven games in 2004 in which he had more than 100 yards receiving. His 253 yards receiving against Tulane was just six yards short of the C-USA record and was the second-highest single-game total in the NCAA this season.
Scout.com currently ranks White as the No. 10 wide receiver available in this year's draft.
The Cowboys also talked Tuesday with Junius Coston, an offensive lineman out of North Carolina A&T.
Coston, who is a projected offensive tackle, stands in at 6-feet-3 inches tall, and weighs 310 pounds. Coston has seen his stock steadily rise this week during the first two practices for the Senior Bowl.
"He's had a solid showing this week, but he still needs some work. Coston is quick and explosive at the point yet looked off-balance and not very strong on Monday," said NFL Draft Expert Tony Pauline.
"He improved in all aspects however on Tuesday. He controlled opponents once engaged and showed decent adjustment," added Pauline.
