The Cowboys get a top talent in the Rams playmaker. Owner Jerry Jones says Witten was taking the weekend to consider his future and hadn’t made a decision. The Cowboys’ most notable receivers are free agent signing Allen Hurns along with Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams.
Did the Cowboys find Jason Witten’s potential replacement?
Three days ago, I used this space to talk about the looming inevitability of Leighton Vander Esch, Dallas Cowboy.
“If your torment was something I had to go through to be where I’m now, then it was all worth it”, Williams said. While Ezekiel Elliott is the clear-cut leader among the Cowboys’ running backs, Scarbrough could compete for playing time with Rod Smith and Trey Williams.
The wide receiver became the first CSU player selected and fifth Mountain West pick of the draft.
With the Vander Esch selection, Dallas passed on the opportunity to draft a receiver following the release of Dez Bryant. He’s got strong hands and will gain consistent yards after the catch. Many analysts also tabbed Gallup as a standout during the Senior Bowl and accompanying practices. “He’s big, he’s athletic, he plays the game the right way”. “A lot of them”. “But a lot of production, too”. The eighth overall pick in the 2013 draft, Austin has touchdowns as a receiver (12), runner (nine) and returner (three). Check out how he felt about the players the Cowboys brought in below.
He only caught 13 passes for 47 yards, but he could provide the speed the Cowboys need in their receiving corps. “We have scouts and personnel people who are convicted he can play outside as well”. He certainly is a dynamic guy.
Since the first round of the draft is over, we now look forward to rounds two and three which will be held tomorrow on April 27th. The former All-American only played five games in 2017 due to knee problems, something you never want to hear for any athlete, let alone one carrying 320 pounds. With Lee in the lineup, the defense is among the best in terms of yards and points allowed per game.
