    Cowboys on the Clock: Russell Maryland, #1 Overall

    It's finally here! The 2016 NFL draft will take place TOMORROW night, as we all watch in anticipation when the Dallas Cowboys come on the clock with the fourth overall pick. Back in 1991, that wait was a big shorter, as the Cowboys owned the first overall pick. They used this pick on a defensive tackle out of the University of Miami. Russell Maryland Maryland's football career took some time to get off the ground, as he ended up at Miami after not being heavily recruited.

Tony Dorsett Dorsett revolutionized the football program at the University of Pittsburgh during his four years there from 1973-1976.

    Beyond The Clock: Cowboys Undrafted Wonder, Tony Romo

    For our final undrafted wonder of the Beyond The Clock series, we pay tribute to one of the greatest players in NFL history to ever go undrafted. My personal favorite Dallas Cowboy, number 9, Tony Romo. Romo attended the 2003 NFL Combine and although he peaked some scout’s interests, he went undrafted. 13 quarterbacks were drafted in 2003. Four in the first round.
