Cyrus Gray of DeSoto, A&M to visit Cowboys

Starting Thursday, the Cowboys can host prospective draft picks with local high school and college ties at the annual Dallas Day workout at Valley Ranch.

DeSoto native and Texas A&M running back Cyrus Gray will visit the Cowboys.

Gray, a 5-foot-10, 206-pounder, rushed for 2,178 yards and 24 touchdowns the past two seasons for the Aggies. But a stress fracture in his left shoulder forced him to miss the final two games of A&M's 2011 season and the Senior Bowl.

Gray ran a 4.47-second 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine and did some position work at Texas A&M's pro day.

Here's what Scouts Inc. had to say about Gray, a potential third- or fourth-round pick.
