Dirty Dozen revisited?

The Cowboys enter the 2009 NFL Draft with 11 draft picks, a Jerry Dozen. Is there any way they duplicate the Dirty Dozen 1975 Cowboys draft class, when 12 players picked in the draft made the '75 team as rookies? Dallas had 17 picks that year; Jerry Jones would have to hit 11-of-11 to get close, but the Cowboys need to cut costs, so keeping 11 rookies on a 53-man roster can't be dismissed.

Here is that class (courtesy of NFL.com), headed by the Manster, Randy White, a draft pick received from the New York Giants in exchange for Craig Morton:

1 2 Randy White DT Maryland

1 18 Tom Henderson LB Langston

2 44 Burton Lawless G Florida

3 70 Bob Breunig LB Arizona State

4 90 Pat Donovan T Stanford

4 96 Randy Hughes DB Oklahoma

5 113 Kyle Davis C Oklahoma

6 148 Roland Woolsey DB Boise State

7 173 Mike Hegman LB Tennessee State

8 200 Mitch Hoopes P Arizona

9 226 Ed Jones DB Rutgers

10 252 Dennis Booker -- Millersville

11 278 Greg Krpalek -- Oregon State

12 304 Chuck Bland -- Cincinnati

13 330 Herbert Scott G Virginia Union

14 356 Scott Laidlaw RB Stanford

15 382 Willie Hamilton -- Arizona

16 407 Pete Clark -- Colorado State

17 434 Jim Testerman -- Dayton
