Whether this is a sign that the team is bracing for life without Gerald Sensabaugh or not, former University of North Carolina safety Da’Norris Searcy is scheduled to meet with the Dallas Cowboys in the near future--presumably because the team needs help at the safety position--ESPN Dallas reports.
Searcy is projected to go between rounds three and five in April’s draft. At the Scouting Combine, he tested as one of the best of what is generally viewed as a weak class of safeties, running a 4.58 40-yard-dash and benching 225 pounds 27 times--the most of his position group. Searcy is a physical safety, capable of making the big hit and occasionally acting as a ballhawk. He is ranked as the ninth best safety in the 2011 class by Scouts Inc.
The former Tar Heel has already met with seven NFL teams. His Pro Day is scheduled for March 31st.
Sensabaugh, the Cowboys’ strong safety for the past two seasons, is currently a free agent. The team has expressed an interest in re-signing him, but Sensabaugh’s agent has said that he will test the market before making a decision.
