The Rest of the 2017 Draft Class
There were three other players drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2017. All three fell victim to the Cowboys final cut day, where the team had to trim their roster from 90-players to only 53 prior to the start of the season. Here’s an update on each of them …
Marquez White, CB, Florida State (Sixth Round, 216th overall)
Many had high hopes that White would make the Cowboys’ active roster this season. Unfortunately, injuries limited his play and he ultimately got released. Fortunately for Dallas, the rookie corner cleared waivers and the Cowboys were able to add him to their practice squad.
Joey Ivie, DT, Florida (Seventh Round, 228th overall)
Also a final cuts casualty, Ivie found a new home with the Atlanta Falcons. The Florida product is currently on their practice squad. Ironically, Dallas is in need of a defensive tackle right now due to the season-ending knee injury suffered by Brian Price on Sunday. And as the Cowboys next opponent is Atlanta, a reunion might not be a bad idea.
Jordan Carroll, DT, Colorado (Seventh Round, 246th overall)
Carroll, the Cowboys final selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, is currently a free agent after Dallas released him prior to the season. As previously stated, the Cowboys could be on the market for a defensive tackle due to the Price injury. The 6-2, 290 pound Carroll could be a candidate.
