#1 – Wide Receiver

While the offensive line is a serious consideration here, we are giving the slight edge to the wide receiver group in Dallas. The Cowboys certainly gave this unit a boost last year when they drafted Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall selection. He would go on to post 74 receptions for 935 yards and five touchdowns as a bit of a third fiddle.

Lamb was added to a group that already had two excellent starters at the top of the depth chart. The number one receiver being Amari Cooper, fresh off inking a five-year, $100 million after appearing in four Pro Bowls in his first six NFL seasons.

The other being the up-and-coming wideout Michael Gallup after recording his first 1,000-yard season in Dallas. He followed that performance up by recording 59 receptions for 843 yards and five scores in 2020 alongside Cooper and Lamb.

Beyond the big three, the Dallas Cowboys have Cedrick Wilson Jr. who posted a five-catch, 107-yards, two-touchdown performance against the Seattle Seahawks in Week Three of last year. The rest of the receiver depth chart includes veterans like Noah Brown and Malik Turner, plus 2021 fifth-round rookie Simi Fehoko out of Stanford and a laundry list of unproven talent.
