Dallas Day gives Cowboys better look at local players such as SMU’s Trey Quinn

Coming into last season, NFL scouts knew SMU’s Courtland Sutton was going to be a wide receiver to watch.

Sutton had 76 catches for 1,246 yards and 10 touchdowns cheap nfl authentic jerseys in 2016 and had the prototype size to make the contested catches necessary at the pro level.

Who NFL scouts could not have known very well was Sutton’s running mate, Trey Quinn. He sat out the 2016 season after transferring from LSU following two seasons in which he caught 22 passes for 276 yards.

In his only season at SMU, Quinn led the nation in receptions with 114 and was fourth in the nation in yards with 1,236 while posting 13 touchdowns.

With the draft approaching, Sutton remains one of the top receiver prospects, but Quinn, 5-foot-11, 203 pounds, hopes what he did in 2017 turns teams into saying, “Who’s that guy?” to “Why don’t we draft that guy?’

“I’m trying to give everybody a reason to say that,” Quinn said. “It is what it is. Everybody’s eyes were on Courtland and that’s fine. I don’t need a lot of pub. I play the game for fun. Whoever wasn’t watching me or a fan of me, I couldn’t care less.”

Quinn will take part in Dallas Day at The Star, the Dallas Cowboys’ practice facility, where local prospects work out or visit with the team.

Among the other prospects will be Texas offensive tackle Connor Williams and safety DeShon Elliott. TCU will have 13 players at Dallas Day, including quarterback Kenny Hill, cheap authentic nfl jerseys who started his college career at Texas A&M after starring at Southlake Carrolls High School. Indiana quarterback Richard Lagow (Plano) and Grambling’s Devante Kincade, who played at Dallas Skyline, also will be on hand.

Considering the football hotbed that is north Texas, the Cowboys have an advantage over other teams with these kinds of visits. Teams are limited to 30 national visitors, but they can have an unlimited amount of local players visit.
