4). JuJu Smith-Schuster could have been a Dallas Cowboys pick
Yes, we are still awaiting the Dallas Cowboys to make a decision with Odell Beckham, Jr. Will they sign him? Does he even want to play with Dallas? Does he even want to play at all. All unanswered questions. However, there is a receiver that fits the profile of the Dallas Cowboys who will be a free agent this offseason.
JuJu Smith-Schuster probably should be a Dallas Cowboy receiver. However, during that draft, there was a huge void missing on the defensive line and the team decided to go with Taco Charlton.
That draft pick caused a domino effect. 2017 was Dez Bryant and Terrence William’s last season with the team. JuJu would have been a receiver plan in place, but it never happened, and the Cowboys subsequently had to use the 2018 first round pick on Amari Cooper instead.
Can’t change any of that right? What can be changed by Jerry and Co. is bringing on a potential 2nd or 3rd wide receiver option that was missing from the Dallas Cowboys last post-season. Smith-Schuster is healthy, and he just reached the pinnacle that many of the Cowboy players are desperately trying to reach.
He can get open with his physicality at the line and that’s what Dak needs. According to PFF, the quarterback rating when JuJu is targeted is a 104.2. I’ll take that any day of the week.
This is a wide receiver who knows the route tree, is ready to play now and shouldn’t cost a lot to obtain his services. This is an easy draft fix for the Dallas Cowboys. It won’t make fans forget about the Taco debacle, but it may be a move that finally gets the team over the top.
