ON THE ROAD: Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett headed to Alabama pro day

The only pro day Jason Garrett went to last year was USC’s.

The Cowboys then turned around and took tackle Tyron Smith in the first round.

The only pro day Garrett will go to this year is Alabama’s.

Draw your own conclusions.

Garrett is scheduled to leave the NFL meetings and travel to Tuscaloosa for Thursday’s pro day. The Crimson Tide held their first pro day earlier this month, but safety Mark Barron (double-hernia), outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw (knee) and running back Trent Richardson (knee) were unable to take part.

All three are expected to work out for coaches and scouts Thursday.

“I tentatively plan on going there,” Garrett said. “I don’t know who all is going to work out, but I know there were a few guys who were not able to work out on their first official pro day.”

Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick did work out on Alabama’s first pro day and is scheduled to visit the Cowboys Valley Ranch facility next week. Will he work out again Thursday?

“We don’t anticipate that, but we’ll see,” Garrett said.
