1. Ryan Flournoy, Wide Receiver

After releasing Michael Gallup, the Cowboys decided not to pursue a veteran addition at wideout this offseason. That led to a belief they would look for help in the NFL Draft — which they did. They just waited until Round 6.

That's where they landed Ryan Flournoy from Southeast Missouri State. Listed at 6-foot-1 and 202 pounds, Flournoy looks the part of an NFL receiver. He also has the athleticism to get the job done evidenced by his 11-foot broad jump, 39.5-inch vertical, and 4.44 time in the 40-yard dash.

Flournoy's talent is undebatable but he's still considered raw as a route runner. He also didn't play against elite competition — although he had a solid showing at the Senior Bowl. Now, he can add a solid showing during his first NFL offseason.

With CeeDee Lamb absent from the team's workouts — and racking up fines — Flournoy flourished. He made one impressive play after another, including hauling in a touchdown on the pylon drill that reminded fans of Dez Bryant.

We shouldn't expect to see him throwing up the X consistently the way Dez did but Flournoy has done everything in his power to not only lock up a spot with the team but make a case for getting snaps as a rookie.

It's not just members of the Cowboys media that have been high on the rookie either. Even Adam Rank of NFL.com has been singing his praises. Rank said the sixth-round pick is "going to be a name to remember this season." He even has Flournoy as a potential player in fantasy leagues this season, thanks in large part to the team's lack of running backs which means they will be throwing early and often.
