Round 4, pick 115, Chatarius (Tutu) Atwell, WR- Louisville

The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver corps, led by players like CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper, is among the best in the league. That might make the teams’ decision to draft wide receiver Chatarius Atwell here a bit perplexing. However, this move becomes less perplexing once you dig into the tape for Atwell.

The young receiver had an unreal season for Louisville back in 2019 when he posted an astonishing 1,272 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. With a combination of blazing speed and solid-route running ability, Atwell is perhaps one of the more intriguing receiving prospects in this draft class.

This past season the 21-year old was not quite as impressive, finishing with 625 receiving yards and eight total touchdowns (seven receiving and one on the ground) in nine games played.

The 5-foot-9, 165-pound wideout is clearly undersized at the position. However, it is also clear that he is the type of player that could become an absolute nightmare for NFL defenses if used properly.

The Dallas Cowboys decide to go for the best player available here and land an excellent deep-threat who will only add to the teams’ already stacked group of receivers.
