    IRVING, Texas - The Cowboys' 2011 draft is incomplete.

    The grade? Certainly no "A's, B's and C's" yet. It's too early to judge their eight selections, particularly before any have participated in an official team workout under league lockout restrictions.

    No, the overall class is unfinished until the Cowboys can sign rookie free agents - a chancy but surprisingly successful venture for the organization after those seven rounds are complete each year.

    The names "Tony Romo" and "Miles Austin" are proof enough. No other NFL team has two multi-time Pro Bowlers - Romo in 2003, Austin in 2006 - who slipped all the way past the "Mr. Irrelevant" pick.

    Recruiting them to Dallas were separate home runs. But in recent years the Cowboys have also hit solid singles and doubles in post-draft free agency. Nine others finished the 2010 season on the roster: Safeties Barry Church and Danny McCray (2010), cornerback Bryan McCann, fullback Chris Gronkowski (2010), guard/center Phil Costa, wide receivers Teddy Williams (2010), Kevin Ogletree (2009) and Sam Hurd (2006), and defensive end Stephen Bowen (2006)...
