    IRVING, Texas – If Ben Bass did not live in Plano, Texas, it’s doubtful he would have received an invite to the Cowboys’ rookie minicamp following the draft.

    “I really didn’t know how the entire process worked, as far as being called as (an undrafted) free agent,” Bass said. “I thought you’d get called immediately after the draft. I didn’t know anything about getting called on Monday, so that Monday I was actually getting prepared to make a resumé and get out into the real world and work a 9-to-5 and all that other stuff.”

    At 6-foot-5, 283 pounds, Bass had the look of an NFL player, but he did not excel at Texas A&M. But that height and weight earned a call from the Cowboys.

    “Great example of guy, came in presented with an opportunity,” coach Jason Garrett said. “You try to draft guys as well as you can draft them, then you sign guys as well as you can sign them after and you think you know more about some than the other guys. We liked him, but from Day 1 he came in and showed us be belonged here in some way, shape or form.
