Dallas Morning News shares details of Andre Holmes visit to Cowboys Stadium

           Cowboys woo draft-worthy visitors

The Dallas Cowboys' list of pre-draft visitors included wide receiver Andre Holmes, of Division II Hillsdale, Mich., College.

Despite his low-key pedigree, Holmes received the full treatment, which he described to the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper.

The Cowboys gave Holmes the full tour of their stadium in Arlington. When Holmes walked into Cowboys Stadium, his named was scrolling across the mammoth video screen.

Holmes ate lunch at a stadium suite, talked with owner-general manager Jerry Jones and met with receivers coach Jimmy Robinson.

The highlight, Holmes said, was an encounter with Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin.

"You think of the top receivers to ever play, you think of Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin, in my mind," Holmes said.

Holmes was listed at 6 feet 4 1/2 and 208 pounds at Michigan State's pro day, and he ran the 40 at 4.45 and 4.51 seconds. He has also had private sessions with Cleveland and New England.
