Slay, who measured in this weekend at the NFL Scouting Combine at 6-3½ and 217 pounds, has already spoken extensively with the Cowboys, Texans, Redskins and Dolphins.

Slay led the Red Raiders defense in tackles during his senior season (114), including 3.5 for loss, one sack and eight forced fumbles.
