2. Second round: Ja'Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

One position the Dallas Cowboys absolutely need to address in the 2024 NFL Draft, perhaps with a couple of selections, is the wide receiver position.

We all know that CeeDee Lamb is one of the best at his position in the entire league. In the near future, the Cowboys are going to have to give Lamb a massive new contract. With that in mind, they are going to need role players at the position on rookie deals to help take the pressure off of Lamb and allow him to do what he does best.

For the time being, Brandin Cooks was a pretty effective placeholder, but I would argue he wasn't effective enough.

The time has come for Dallas to move on from Michael Gallup. They made a huge mistake choosing to keep him over Amari Cooper.

Jalen Tolbert hasn't developed as hoped through his first couple of seasons, which leads us to the Ja'Lynn Polk selection. Although the Washington Huskies fan base is reeling over all the departures this year, there's no doubt that NFL teams and fan bases can't wait to get their hands on some of the top prospects from this program.

Polk is 6-foot-2 and a big-play threat at the position, averaging nearly 17 yards per reception over the last two seasons.
