Round 4, Pick 123

WR, Lynn Bowden


The Dallas Cowboys need to take advantage of this talented receiver class and this is essentially the last chance to do it. Round four is going to be the money round for WR in the 2020 draft. Just like it was in the third round back in 2018 when Dallas picked up Michael Gallup, bargains are going to present themselves at this point in the draft.

Van Jefferson will go at the very top of the round but a couple wild cards are going to sneak through. Lynn Bowden is one of those wild cards. The supremely talented receiver from Kentucky stunted his growth moving to QB last season. It was a move to help the team out, and while it displayed his open field play-making ability, it didn’t do him any favors at preparing him for the position he’ll play in the pros.

Bowden projects as a slot receiver and gadget player on the Dallas Cowboys early on, but his size (6-foot-1, 200lbs) and his physicality says he’ll be able to take snaps outside in the near future. Bowden has nice hands and is a promising route runner – He’s not anywhere close to where he needs to be but he’s not a blank slate either.


Lynn Bowden can follow blocks, break tackles, elude tacklers, and break free for the home run. His ability to start, stop, and change direction is elite and he can make a difference at any given play if you can just get the ball into his hands.

Bowden is like a younger, more dynamic, more explosive, and less polished Randall Cobb. He should more than make up for the loss of Cobb immediately and has the potential to be an elite inside receiver with the right polish.
