This is a picture from one of the old college all-star game. Which future Cowboy appears here?

Can we get a hint?
Cleveland won the game 24-16. Gale Sayers did not play as expected. The future Cowboy shown in the picture returned punts.
Looks like Cleveland Browns vs Colege all-stars. Cleveland won the NFL Championship in 1964 and the all-star vs NFL Champions game would have been in July or August of 1965.
First thought it was Mel Renfro but he was a rookie in 1964. On the PFR page Dallas drafted a couple of RB’s who made the team but were not well known. So, don’t know….
The image of this web post says it is Bob Hayes. I forgot Hayes was drafted in 1965 and thus, is the PR in this picture. Should have known!
That site has all sorts of information, and not just about the all-star game.
