IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys will have 15 players at their rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

They will join the nine draft picks and 24 undrafted free agents at Valley Ranch on Friday and Saturday.

The tryout players include: Oklahoma State cornerback Tyler Patmon, Colorado center Gus Handler, Citadel cornerback Brandon McCladdie, Oklahoma State linebacker Caleb Lavey, Lehigh wide receiver Lee Kurfis, Baylor linebacker Eddie Lackey, Louisiana-Monroe quarterback Kolton Browning, Wake Forest running back Josh Harris, Tennessee defensive tackle Maurice Couch, Texas A&M Kingsville wide receiver Robert Armstrong, Bowling Green defensive back Aaron Foster, Louisiana-Monroe running back Jyruss Edwards, Texas Tech defensive lineman Dartwan Bush and BYU tight end Kaeakua Friel.

Tackle Darius Moore, who went to camp with the Houston Texans in 2011, will also attend the minicamp.
