When preparing for the NFL Draft, a team must leave no stone unturned. It is easy to scout the star players set to go in the first couple of rounds, but what really separates a team is when they can find the hidden gems or sleepers that fall through the cracks. That is what the Dallas Cowboys will be looking to do in a couple of weeks, and here are five names they should keep in mind.

Dallas needs a safety and there are a few big names that will go in the first two rounds. But if the Cowboys miss out on those guys, they could take a look at Tre Boston out of North Carolina. Boston is a big hitter who also plays well in coverage. He had 13 career interceptions, and Dallas could likely get Boston in the 6th or 7th rounds.

Another late-round option at safety could be Vinnie Sunseri of Alabama. Sunseri will fall in the draft because of an ACL injury that he suffered last season. If he slips to far, he might be worth the risk for Dallas.

There has been a lot of debate as to weather or not the Cowboys will take a QB in this year’s draft. One QB not getting a lot of attention is Logan Thomas out of Virginia Tech. Thomas is a project QB; he is not the type that will come in and start right away. That’s what makes him interesting for Dallas. The Cowboys have their starter in Tony Romo, so Thomas could develop and possibly be the future starter in two or three years.

Ahmad Dixon is a safety out of Baylor who could be a nice middle to late-round selection for Dallas. Dixon is 6-foot and weighs 212-pounds. His biggest strength is against the run, but he can hold his own in coverage as well.

Dallas needs defensive linemen and lots of them. One guy who would be worth a look in the middle rounds is DT Daniel McCullers of Tennessee. McCullers stands at 6-foot 7 and weighs 352-pounds. With that size he would be a force in the middle of the Cowboys’ line and make it extremely difficult for opposing offenses to run up the middle.
