Michael Gallup: The future is now, Gallup is the guy mark my words. He was insanely productive in college and was even ranked amongst the top wide receivers in his class if you ask most NFL scouting websites. Gallup just went to a somewhat tiny school so his achievements do not really matter as much as let’s say a Calvin Ridley or D.J. Moore.

The sheer fact that the Cowboys got Gallup so late in the draft is absolutely mind-boggling, you could’ve made a strong case for him to go in either the first or second round. So the value is absolutely there with this guy, but not only is he a very cost efficient option, he also is very good at catching the football.

He focuses on making catches with his hands and not his body so a lot of the circus-like catches you see from the elite playmakers around the league, Gallup can pull off. The rookie is expected to be apart of the Cowboys newly built receiving corps well into the future so it would not be surprising to see him take over Williams role in the middle of the season at some point.

If Gallup can impress during training camp he could be one of the top wide receivers on this roster sooner rather than later.
