Dallas Cowboys Draft: The Philadelphia Eagles exist
The Philadelphia Eagles are in need of a wide receiver and will be selecting before the Cowboys in the 2021 NFL draft. It would be very on-brand for the organization to draft someone other than Smith at their selection.

If they were to pass on him and he was to end up with the Cowboys, Eagles fans will be crying in anguish about how their organization has allowed the Dallas Cowboys to get two of their favorite receivers in back-to-back draft classes.
I’m sure many of you reading this would like this scenario to happen for the chaos that would ensue.
However, it doesn’t end there! Imagine several years from now the Cowboys are reaping the rewards of the selection with one of the most prolific passing offenses in NFL history while the Philadelphia Eagles are pushed to irrelevancy because the wide receiver they selected simply has no chemistry with anyone in Philadelphia. (*cough* like Nelson Agholor *cough*)
If the last reason alone isn’t good enough for you to be sold on drafting another wide receiver early in the first round again, that is fine because I have two others. Smith could make this offense more dynamic because the drop off in talent between the starting three receivers and their backups would be significantly less with Smith than without him. With Dak Prescott at quarterback, there aren’t many situations where the Cowboys passing attack would find themselves in a hole.
