Cole Beasley/Terrance Williams/Michael Gallup/Allen Hurns/Deonte Thompson/Tavon Austin/Lance Lenoir
I have the Dallas Cowboys going supremely heavy at wide receiver in 2018. A total of seven receivers will make the roster and all of them have proven their worth at some point this offseason. Michael Gallup should develop into an absolute sensation as he just may be the best wide receiver of this group.

He is young, hard working, and dedicated to catching footballs and making big plays. Gallup proved that during the teams first preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers as he hauled in Dak Prescott’s first touchdown of the preseason. Terrance Williams and Allen Hurns also made some plays in the preseason opener which somewhat shows how the passing game will operate in 2018.
Williams despite his offseason issues looks focused and ready to be a factor this season while Hurns can utilize his physicality to make important plays in the red zone. Unfortunately Cowboy fans could not see Cole Beasley or Deonte Thompson make their preseason debuts but hopefully they will do more in Week Two.
Beasley is a lock to make the roster regardless of how much preseason action he logs and Thompson can be both a receiver and a kick/punt returner so his versatility will give him an edge. Tavon Austin has been listed as a running back but has done most of his work with the wide receivers.
In fact Austin has been one of the more prolific wide receivers during training camp making highlight reel catches frequently. It appears Prescott has a ton of chemistry with the former Los Angeles Ram and that should pay dividends during the season.
He also from all the reports coming out of training camp seems to be a newly refocused player who is striving to lead by example and utilize his talents the right way. Lastly we have Lance Lenoir who has been an absolute marvel throughout all of training camp.
He made some big plays during the Cowboys first preseason game so if he keeps this up he could sneak on to the roster as the teams seventh wide receiver. Lenoir has basically lived on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad so seeing him make the main roster would be special.
