Howard Jones of Shepherd visits with Dallas Cowboys

Shepherd hasn’t had a player selected in the NFL draft since 1979 (running back Wayne Wilson), but defensive end Howard Jones could change that.

Jones (6-foot-2 3/8, 234 pounds) was at the NFL Scouting Combine and stood on his numbers from the event (he was a top performer in his position group in the vertical jump and among the top performers at his position in the 40-yard dash, broad jump and three-cone drill).

Jones worked out at linebacker during the pro day on April 9, which was held on a sunny, 55-degree day and held outdoors and run on FieldTurf. Jones is among the prospects who visited with the Dallas Cowboys.
