The Cowboys continued hosting national prospects Wednesday, with Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle among those visiting Valley Ranch.
He is one of at least four running backs the Cowboys will host. Arkansas' Knile Davis and Michgian State's Le'Veon Bell are expected as national prospects, and TCU's Matthew Tucker will attend Dallas Day next week when local prospects will workout for the Cowboys.
Dallas is in the market for a No. 2 running back. Felix Jones, a free agent, remains unsigned. He rushed for 2,728 yards and scored 15 touchdowns in the five seasons after the Cowboys made him a first-round pick. Phillip Tanner and Lance Dunbar were the No. 3 running backs in 2012, and both return, but Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones has said the Cowboys will seek a primary backup to DeMarco Murray.
The Cowboys have a maximum of 30 national prospects they can host. TCU receiver Josh Boyce and Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins were among the visitors Tuesday. First-round prospects including Alabama guard Chance Warmack, North Carolina guard Jonathan Cooper, Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro are among others with scheduled visits.
