    The first of two practice sessions starts Friday at 10:30 a.m. CT.

    What happens today: The Cowboys will have seven draft picks, 21 undrafted free agents and at least 10 tryout invitees work out this weekend at Valley Ranch. CB Morris Claiborne, the sixth overall pick of the draft, will not practice as he's still recovering from left wrist surgery.


    Saalim Hakim, WR, Tarleton State: The brother of former NFL player Az-Zahir Hakim spent just one season at Tarleton State after playing at Palomar Junior College in California. Hakim, an undrafted free agent, caught 18 passes for 358 yards and two touchdowns for Tarleton State, including a game-winning catch against Texas A&M Commerce in 2010. Hakim missed the deadline to declare for the draft after his 2010 season and spent 2011 in the United Football League. Hakim has been clocked at 4.29 in the 40.
