HOUSTON – Mississippi State cornerback Emmanuel Forbes Jr., one of the top defensive back prospects in the draft, visited the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday and visits the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday followed by visits with the Baltimore Ravens, Washington Commanders, New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals, according to league sources.

Forbes, an All-Southeastern Conference selection and second-team All-American pick, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds at the NFL scouting combine with a 1.48 10-yard split, a 37 1/2 inch vertical leap and a 10-11 broad jump.

Forbes is a long, athletic corner at 6-foot-1, 180 pounds.

He had 46 tackles, 10 pass breakups, 156 passes defensed and one blocked kick last season.

He had six interceptions, returning three for touchdowns and set a record with six pick-sixes during his career.

In 2021 he had three interceptions and 60 tackles.
