The 2023 NFL Draft might be over, but the Dallas Cowboys continue to add talent to the roster via the many undrafted free agents (UDFAs) that did not hear their name called last weekend.

Alex Katson of Neptune Scouting who does a fantastic job tracking all things NFL and Draft related in his spreadsheets, for an easy way to find and track the UDFAs the Cowboys and other teams have signed.

Historically, the Cowboys have done a good job of finding hidden gems after the draft, with players such as Tony Romo, Miles Austin, Ronald Leary, Cole Beasley, Blake Jarwin, and Cooper Rush becoming important contributors.

Here are five UDFAs from this year who have the best chance to make the final 53 man roster if they have a strong pre-season.

5 Cowboys undrafted free agents who could make the 53-man roster

1. Hunter Luepke, RB/FB, North Dakota State

The Cowboys have not rostered a full-back since Jamize Olawale in 2019, but head coach Mike McCarthy did have fullbacks during his time in Green Bay and the running back room is currently one in flux, with the departure of franchise running back Ezekiel Elliot and last year's leading rusher Tony Pollard rehabbing from injury.

With every spot behind Pollard on the depth chart open to competition, Luepke offers a unique skill set not found elsewhere on the roster. While free agent pickup Ronald Jones and Malik Davis are normal single back rushers, and fellow rookie Deuce Vaughn projects as a utility back, Luepke has experience as both an H-back/lead blocker and a true running back.

At 6-1 and 230 pounds, Luepke's size and versatility as a blocker cannot be found elsewhere on the roster and he could fit nicely with Mike McCarthy's offseason mantra of wanting the Cowboys to become more efficient running the football.
