The Dallas Cowboys haven’t made many impactful moves during NFL free agency, which leads to the belief that they will use the NFL draft to fill some of those voids.

The Cowboys have seven picks in the draft, including three within the top 100. Dallas will likely add to the trenches on both sides of the ball, their linebacker unit, wide receiver, and running backs room. 

Dallas could add to its defensive line with its first pick at No. 24 overall as there should be a few top-edge rushers available. However, the Cowboys must use multiple picks to add depth to the defensive line, which is getting older with Demarcus Lawrence.

That said, the Cowboys’ scouting department is doing its due diligence as they are looking in their backyard to see if they can find a diamond in the rough. 

Aaron Wilson of KPRC reported over the weekend that the Cowboys are inviting Baylor EDGE rusher Byron Vaughns to their local pro day on Monday. 

Vaughns had a solid 2023 campaign at Baylor as a fifth-year senior, recording 32 total tackles, eight tackles for loss, and three sacks. The 6-foot-4 outside linebacker played 11 games this year for the Bears and made one start at the Jack linebacker spot.

Before arriving at Baylor, the Forth Worth, TX, native spent two seasons at Utah State and one at the University of Texas. Vaughns also participated in the Big 12’s pro day last week, which was held at the Cowboys’ facilities in Frisco, TX.
