5 wide receivers that grabbed Cowboys attention at NFL Combine

4. Jonathan Mingo, Mississippi
When Jonathan Mingo got ready to start doing his drills, one thing stood out — his impressive build. Mingo measured in at 6-foot-2 and 220-pounds which makes him one of the bigger targets in this draft class.
He didn’t have a ton of production at Ole Miss but was continually improving each year during his collegiate career. In 2022, he had 51 receptions for 861 yards and five touchdowns. It was also the only season where he played more than eight games, suiting up for 13 for the Rebels.
Mingo is also not known as a great separator with his route running. Even so, he impressed on Saturday with a 4.46 in the 40-yard dash and made the gauntlet drill look like something he does on a daily basis.
In Dallas, Mingo could potentially give them someone similar to what the Eagles have in A.J. Brown. Both are incredibly powerful players that can bully a smaller defensive back that attempts to keep up with them. It’s also a much different dynamic to what Lamb brings to the table, and it’s never bad to have versatility on the roster.
Another reason Mingo could make sense for the Cowboys would be his value. Mingo isn’t expected to go in the first two rounds, so they can fill some other needs and potentially add him as an option later on during the second night of the draft.
