Two running backs are among the first visitors to Valley Ranch for pre-draft visits with the Cowboys.

The team almost has filled its 30 allowed visits for national prospects, with the first group getting to town Monday night. Georgia running back Todd Gurley and Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon are among the first group scheduled to visit Valley Ranch.

Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon, Indiana’s Tevin Coleman, Boise State’s Jay Ajayi and Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah are other running backs scheduled to visit Valley Ranch, according to owner Jerry Jones.

UCLA inside linebacker Eric Kendricks, Kentucky defensive end Alvin Dupree, Washington outside linebacker Shaq Thompson, LSU defensive end Danielle Hunter, USC cornerback Josh Shaw and Arizona State free safety Damarious Randall also were scheduled to arrive to town Monday night.

The Cowboys also are expected to welcome Mississippi State linebacker Benardrick McKinney, Wake Forest linebacker Kevin Johnson and UCLA defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa, among others, in the coming days.

The team will host its annual Dallas Day for local prospects Friday. Players from local colleges, including TCU, as well as players who went to a DFW high school are allowed to workout for the Cowboys at Dallas Day.
