3 wide receivers the Cowboys could draft to replace Michael Gallup

Dallas loves fire-power on offense so Gallup's missing void is likely to be filled during the draft. Luckily, the WR class is stout in 2024

2. Troy Franklin, Oregon

When Oregon quarterback and fellow 2024 draft prospect Bo Nix became Franklin's quarterback, the two developed a connection. As a result, Franklin was one of the best receivers in the Pac-12 in 2023. For the season, Franklin hauled in 81 passes and nearly 1,400 receiving yards last fall and was a constant playmaker.

Most of his success stems from his deep-threat ability and explosiveness, mirroring Gallup in his prime. Franklin has the size at 6'2 but his 185 pound-frame can scare teams away. However, with how easy he can get open, he makes up for his frame. Plus he can always bulk up and the Cowboys' staff could get the speedster a a lot stronger.

Franklin attracts a lot of attention with how easy he can get open and often times calls for extra coverage. If that happens at the NFL level, luckily for Dallas, Lamb would be on the opposite-side free to be effective. Franklin's skill-set does not only benefit him. He is a premier deep-threat and his smooth route-running would make him a great addition to the offense.
