The Dallas Cowboys have many holes to fill on both sides of the ball. However, we all know scoring points is key in Dallas and getting more fire power on offense is always something they strive for.

With the recent release of Michael Gallup, getting depth in the WR room became almost certain. Luckily for Dallas, this draft class is loaded at the position.

Marvin Harrison Jr, Malik Nabers, Rome Udunze and even Brian Thomas Jr, all have something in common: they can be franchise-changers. However, chances are that each are out of the Cowboys' reach come draft weekend. However, there are plenty of receivers behind those studs that can still come into Dallas and be difference makers from day one.

3 wide receivers Cowboys could draft to replace Michael Gallup

1. Adonai Mitchell, Texas

Adonai Mitchell crushed the NFL draft combine and reminded many that Texas can produce NFL-ready receivers. Mitchell has the speed and size at 6'2 and 205 pounds to be a solid weapon. His insane route-tree and ability to shake defenders (his double move in particular is incredible), is second to none. He also has the athleticism to attack the ball at the perfect time and uses his body-control to his advantage.

When Gallup was in his prime, he was fantastic at getting open on both underneath and deep routes. Mitchell can come in and replace Gallup's skillset seamlessly and give quarterback Dak Prescott another weapon. Having both Mitchell and CeeDee Lamb, who each can create separation and the speed to blow by defenders, would make for a dangerous passing-attack. Mitchell is a perfect fit for the Dallas spotlight.

If Mitchell can develop more toughness at the line and limit being overpowered, he will be special. Mitchell is a play-maker and can come up in big moments. Keeping Mitchell in his home-state would be a great move for the Cowboys.
