IRVING, Texas -- With one slot open on their national visits for draft prospects, the Cowboys welcomed Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara to Valley Ranch on Wednesday.
The Cowboys hosted 29 visitors from across the country, including Southern Cal offensive tackle Tyron Smith and Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt to town last week, and they held their annual Dallas Day workout for players from local high schools and colleges, including quarterbacks Andy Dalton of TCU and Greg McElroy of Alabama. McElroy's father works for the team.
Amukamara has been linked in mock drafts to the Cowboys with the No. 9 pick, but most prognosticators have the Cowboys taking Smith with their first pick now. The Cowboys remain high on their top-three cornerbacks -- Terence Newman, Mike Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick -- but Amukamara is considered the second-best corner prospect in the draft. He did not have an interception in 2010 after having five as a junior.
