    Cowboys 2012 Undrafted Free Agents: Announce Signing Of 21 Players
    by One.Cool.Customer on Apr 30, 2012 12:30 PM CDT in Dallas Cowboys 2012 Draft

    Cowboys consider OL Ron Leary their "8th draft pick"
    The Dallas Cowboys announced today that they have signed 21 undrafted rookie free agents. The official list of signings differs in one point from the list we had published earlier: QB Nathan Dick does not appear to be one of the UDFA signings after all. Instead he'll be among 10-15 players having an extra tryout during rookie minicamp.

    Actually, I was the one who said 30 UDRFAs, but I was wrong about that... turns out since the NFL went to a 90 man roster, for the first time the still-unsigned draft picks count against the 90 man limit... in prior years, those players didn't count against the limit until they actually signed, and the Cowboys generally didn't do that until the last coupla days before the start of training camp....

    So, we have 90 players under contract and 7 draft picks... that leaves 23 open roster spots... we seem to have signed 21 players to date, this leaves 2 open roster slots at this point...

    Note, I think I found the 23:The other 2 spots that cowboys signed and we havent found yet>



    Adrian Hamilton on the other hand will likely have the ears pinned back and asked to go get the quarterback. Lets not forget Hamilton’s propensity for blocking kicks on special teams. Other notable undrafted free agent signings by the Dallas Cowboys are as follows:
    1.OT Taylor Dever, Notre Dame
    2.TE George Bryan, N.C. State
    3.CB Isaac Madison, Arkansas
    4.TE Andrew Szcrerba, Penn State
    5.RB Darrell Scott, South Florida
    6.RB Lance Dunbar, North Texas
    7.G/T Ronald Leary, Memphis
    8.OT Levy Adcock, Oklahoma State
    9.CB Troy Woolfork, Michigan
    10.RB Bryce Beal, Houston
    11.QB Nathan Dick, Central Arkansas
    12.WR McKay Jacobson, BYU
    13.WR, Cole Beasley, SMU

    16.WR Saalim Hakim, Tarleton St.

    While the list of undrafted free agents is definitive at this point and close to being a complete list. The list of tryout invitees hasn’t been confirmed yet but a couple names at this point are former Vanberbilt QB, Larry Smith, North Texas TE, Jamize Olawale and Midwestern State WR, David Little.
