Of the 254 picks this weekend in the NFL Draft there are a handful of Central Texas College football stars that will likely have their name called.
Baylor defensive back Derrek Thomas visited the Cowboys in the lead-up to the draft, and Mickey Spagnola of the Silver Star Nation says Thomas’ teammate and At least one Aggie could also be on the Cowboys radar this weekend.
“One of the guys — when names come up around here among us, is the running back from A&M, [Trayveon] Williams,” he said. “The Cowboys do need a back-up running back. The wide receiver from Baylor, is kind of intriguing, Jalen Hurd. he had played running back at Tennessee, before he transferred to Baylor. he’s kind of a big wide receiver. I think those names stand out.”
The Cowboys will have six picks in the draft starting with pick 58 on Friday Night.
