The Dallas Cowboys were able to secure wide receiver Amari Cooper to a long-term deal this offseason. It seems they may look to find a bonafide No. 2 option in the 2020 NFL Draft of the opportunity presents itself.
According to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, the Cowboys may look to use the No. 17 pick on one of the the big-name wide receiver prospects if they are still on the board.
The Cowboys may go WR in either the “first or second round” in this years draft. If one of the Big 3 WRs (Lamb, Jeudy, Ruggs) are available at 17, don’t be surprised if Dallas pulls the trigger.
The prospect of the Cowboys going with a wideout in the early is certainly not too far-fetched. After all, they are in the midst of securing the final piece of their offense. That's obviously assuming quarterback Dak Prescott re-signs for the long haul. It only makes sense to beef up his supporting cast heading into the 2020 NFL season.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether or not the aforementioned names will still be available by the time the Cowboys are on the clock. The restrictions by the NFL in response to the coronavirus pandemic has done little to affect their draft stock. And they could very well be off the board within the first 15 picks.
Fortunately, this year's draft has been pegged as one of the deepest receiver classes in recent history. Even if the Cowboys are unable to land the “Big 3” of wideouts, there will still be no shortage of promising talent left for them to choose from in the early rounds.
