The NFL Draft is three weeks away and Alabama running back prospect Kenyan Drake is relishing every moment.

On Wednesday, the 6-foot-1, 210-pound Crimson Tide standout made one of his multiple stops in Dallas to visit the Cowboys, a franchise in need of a versatile tailback.

He took full advantage of the moment posing in a photo with Cowboys’ owner and general manager, Jerry Jones.

Despite playing second fiddle to Derrick Henry, Drake had a good season in 2015.

Drake, a native of Powder Springs, Ga., totaled 408 rushing yards, 276 receiving yards and two total touchdowns on 106 touches. His diversity was prolific on special teams, as he recorded 505 kick returns. Drake’s highlight moment came against Clemson in the College Football Playoff national title game, when he took a 95-yard kickoff back for a pivotal score.

His performance at the NFL Scouting Combine was second to none. Drake recorded a time of 4.45 seconds (4.36, unofficial) in the 40-yard dash, while displaying a 34.5-inch vertical jump.
