According to draft experts, the initial indications are that the Cowboys have secured a top 10 2020 draft class. So what have they added? Ross Waddell (@RossWaddell92) takes a look.
The NFL draft brings new hope and new stories to the NFL. It’s a time when the vast majority of fans begin to forget the traumas of the previous season and are filled with optimism that this year might finally be their year.
The Dallas Cowboys have come out of the draft with a highly rated rookie pool headlined by first round pick WR CeeDee Lamb and second round CB Trevon Diggs.
In a strong wide receiver class, they added a universally regarded top three wide out in Oklahoma star CeeDee Lamb to add to the new $100m man, Amari Cooper, and ascending third year wideout, Michael Gallup, who arguably still went under the radar on the national level despite a breakout sophomore season recording over 1,100 yards despite missing two games due to injury in the early portion of the season. By owner Jerry Jones’ own admission, they never expected the Oklahoma wide receiver to be available at pick #17 and the Cowboys had been, realistically, focusing their attention on LSU DE K’Lavon Chaisson, a talented but raw pass rusher, and corners AJ Terrell and, at one time, CJ Henderson.
