The Dallas Cowboys could go early at wide receiver if one of the top guys falls, but there are some other options that could fall into the second round. We have covered a lot of wide receivers leading up to the draft, here we will focus on five possibilities and how they could fit within the team. With the acquisition of Brandin Cooks, the Cowboys may not see the need early, but you can never have enough good wide receivers and with the play of Michael Gallup last year, depth is certainly a concern.
This draft has left many analysts with a lackluster feeling, but while the class has talent, it isn’t very top-heavy. I would list Jaxon Smith-Njigba on this, but there is a feeling he is the top wide receiver and may not be available. So we will look beyond JSN, but if he is there, I do not know how the Cowboys will pass on him. His route running is something the Cowboys don’t quite have at the moment, and he would help open up a lot for CeeDee Lamb and Cooks.
The Dallas Cowboys may not get JSN, but here are five options that could have the Cowboys call their name in the first few rounds of the draft.
There are some names for later in the draft, but we will look early for this article. I am using a combination of my and others’ boards for a general consensus of who might be available and where. If the team would prefer a more traditional “X” style wide receiver, their options early may be limited, but if they desire a smaller, more slot-oriented wide receiver there could be a few available.
