One of the more productive depth pieces the Cowboys grabbed, Cedrick Wilson out of Boise State provided help at wide receiver. While Wilson was eventually seen as replaceable, there are many that would love to add Wilson back as a fourth wide receiver. Wilson had a good 2021 after Michael Gallup went down and the cost for his services ended up too high for the front office. In Miami, Wilson did not live up to the cost the Dolphins paid for him. Now, the Dolphins have been rumored to look for trades or hope that he becomes the player they signed.
In Dallas, Wilson was a solid depth piece and performed as well as you would want your fourth/fifth wide receiver to perform. The Dallas Cowboys saw the cost of Wilson and decided Noah Brown would give them enough production to feel Wilson leaving would be okay. I do think the Cowboys wish they had him in 2022, but not as in dire need in 2023 without injuries.
Wilson is a solid player and his 2021 may have helped his overall grade more than anything. He was a solid pick for the Dallas Cowboys and white he had one really good season, that season is enough to keep his grade up. Much of the grade has to do with his one good season and where he was picked. Fairly to Wilson he was what the Cowboys wanted but just played himself out of the price they were willing to pay.
Individual Grade: B+
