6. Wide Receiver 

Last year, the Cowboys struggled to find consistency at receiver outside of CeeDee Lamb and his All-Pro season.

Michael Gallup returned from a torn ACL but couldn’t get into a rhythm. In addition, last year's third-round pick Jalen Tolbert had a disappointing rookie season, and the rest of the group featured many inexperienced and practice squad-level players. 

As we make our way closer to the 2023 season, Dallas should feel more confident about the unit. Lamb, a healthy Gallup, and a reliable Brandin Cooks should form a solid trio for quarterback Dak Prescott. 

The Cowboys are, however, hoping to see better production and more involvement from Tolbert and, all around, can't afford any big-time injuries.

Still, the addition of Cooks is a big one for the offense. It almost seems Cooks can play that Cole Beasley or Randall Cobb-like role for this offense while also posing as a deep threat. Or if Gallup, who has been injury prone the last two seasons, goes down again, Cooks can easily slide into being Prescott’s number two option.
