Dallas Cowboys position group: WR

Easily the deepest position is at wide receiver. The Cowboys sport three potential 1,000-yard receivers with Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb. With perhaps one of the top wide receiver corps in the league at starters, the group continues to stay fairly deep. With Noah Brown and Cedrick Wilson currently sitting at the four and five positions, there is plenty of talent to give them competition. Rookie Simi Fehoko looks to be the eventual replacement for Gallup should the Cowboys decide to move on next season, and with a handful of first-year and rookie players, there is no shortage of height, length, and speed at the position.

The question for this corps isn’t how deep it really is, but how explosive they will be. There is prevailing thought this corps could easily pass three 1,000 yard receivers even with shares of passes with the tight ends and running backs. The fight really begins at the number four positions and just stays competitive. Barring a huge run of injuries, this should be the deepest group all year.

There has been some talk that Gallup could get moved before the trade deadline, and while it would be a loss, the Cowboys should be able to maintain quality should they move this way. Dak will have plenty of options to throw to in 2021. Speed has been an issue over the past few years, but recent additions should help.
