The Dallas Cowboys will be making some important draft picks in April. A couple of these players will be difference makers once they put on a Cowboys uniform. At least a few of the Cowboys draft picks will be starters on day one.
The Cowboys could be looking at some big names from big-name programs. Many of these players have been closely watched since their freshman year. Some might have been starters for three or four years.
Another possible route for the Cowboys would be to take a shot at an unknown player from a non-Division I-A program. Many would question the wisdom of picking a player from such a program since that player would have faced inferior competition. Still, a few of these players have real talent and real NFL potential.
The Cowboys have capitalized on non-Division I-A talent before, taking such players as Dexter Coakley out of Appalachian State and Larry Allen out of Sonoma State.
Who could be the next Cowboys standout from a non-Division I-A program?
Read along for a few possibilities.
