2. Cowboys should trade for Treylon Burks

Piggybacking off of Bateman, the Cowboys need another receiver. Treylon Burks is a far more compelling than the out-of-favor Raven. The Titans used the first-round pick they got in return from the A.J. Brown trade on Burks, and it hasn't panned out for them.

Burks has fallen victim to injuries (just 22 games played in two years) and a porous Titans passing offense and he enters his third season down the WR pecking order after Tennessee signed Calvin Ridley to a massive deal in free agency. He also has to fend off DeAndre Hopkins for targets and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine has turned himself into a nice player.

Burks has just 49 catches for 665 in two seasons, but he's not far removed from being one of the most coveted WRs in a stacked 2022 class. He was a 30-visit with the Cowboys before the 2022 draft and will only cost $3.918 on the cap in 2024 and $4.572 million in 2025 before his fifth-year option comes into focus in 2026.

Still just 24 years old, Burks could go for as little as a fifth-round pick. Dallas has two of those this year courtesy of the comp pick formula.
