1. The catcher in the eye

With the 17th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select a wide receiver. No way. Just no. Stop.

I’m bewildered that I even have to write these words. The Dallas Cowboys traded a first-rounder to obtain Amari Cooper‘s services. Since then, they locked him in Dallas with a cool $100 million contract, which was supposedly a lower sum than what the Washington Redskins were offering.

In addition, the Cowboys got a game-changer in Michael Gallup. The former third-rounder is under contract until 2021 and is scheduled to earn $750K in base salary this year, according to spotrac.com. 

With that said, why would the Dallas Cowboys even entertain the thought of grabbing a wide receiver in the first round? Do names such as Henry Ruggs III, Justin Jefferson, Jerry Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb tickle you so much to drop another first-round card on the table?

No thank you. The Dallas Cowboys have other clear needs, such as figuring out safety help, fixing the cornerbacks area, and securing help on the offensive line.
