Allen Hurns: The man expected to take number 88, Hurns is by far the most dangerous wide receiver on the Dallas Cowboys roster. Even though he has decided to take the number 17, he will still be expected to be an elite caliber wide receiver. Hurns is the only player who has registered a 1,000-yard season out of any of the Cowboys current wide receivers.

He has proven that he can be a number one option and had double-digit touchdowns in 2015. He also broke 1,000 yards that season showing that he could be the primary target for an offense. Since then though, he has only managed 5 touchdowns, thanks to injury.

The one impressive stat he has had during his injury-prone years, he recorded a 69.6 catch percentage in 2017. At 6’3, 201 pounds, with four years of NFL experience, it is hard not to say that Hurns is the best player at his position for the Cowboys. He has the experience, size, and numbers to take over where Dez Bryant left off.
