3. WR Jalen Tolbert

Jalen Tolbert is penciled in as WR3 following the release of Michael Gallup. Tolbert improved significantly in year two, but he couldn't possibly go lower. At the end of the day, 22 catches for 268 yards and two touchdowns isn't good enough to be the third wideout in an offense that's heavily reliant on the passing game to move downfield and score touchdowns.

The Cowboys aren't in dire straits at WR, but their impetus to draft one could change if LSU's Brian Thomas (LSU) or Xavier Worthy (Texas) are sitting there in round one. Western Kentucky's Malachi Corley was a 30 visit with Dallas and could be available when the team picks at No. 54 overall.

Corley is the only known WR who was a 30 visit with the Cowboys, but Florida's Ricky Pearsall, Alabama's Jermaine Burton, Washington's Ja'Lynn Polk and Michigan's Cornelius Johnson are potential mid-to-late round targets that could make Tolbert sweat entering training camp.
