2020 Could be Make or Break Season for Cowboys’ WR Cedrick Wilson

Two years in the and two years spent mostly on . That's how 's professional career has pretty much gone to date. His opportunity of earning a roster spot with the Cowboys or any other team in the league could be running out, meaning 2020 could be a make or break year for him.

The ever important Year 3 is looming over Cedrick Wilson's head right now. This is the year that typically determines whether or not a players got what it takes to succeed in the NFL. By now we should know what Wilson can and cannot do on the field, but unfortunately for him he can't seem to get out of his own way.

Cedrick Wilson simply hasn't been able to stay healthy enough to prove what he's capable of on the field. In as a rookie he was being spoken highly of, but a torn labrum put a stop to that as quickly as it started. That unfortunate earned him a spot on Injured Reserve (IR). Basically, 2018 could have been classified as a redshirt year for him.

2019 was supposed to be different for Cedrick Wilson. He looked to be the favorite to replace early in the , but that all changed once the Dallas Cowboys signed veteran WR . Despite Cobb's addition though, Wilson was receiving a few opportunities here and there to show his talent on the field as both a wide receiver and .

Things were actually starting to look up. Wilson was starting to show flashes of the player the Dallas Cowboys thought they were getting when they drafted him in the sixth-round of the . That's when the unfortunate injury bug struck again. He sustained a knee injury in the fourth quarter in , which again ended up landing him on IR.

There seems to be a reoccurring theme when it comes to Cedrick Wilson. Just when he starts to prove his worth and show what he can do on the field, an injury arises that puts him out of commission. If he ever wants to earn a more prominent role with the Dallas Cowboys, or any other team for that matter, he's going to have to figure out a way to stay healthy.

That's why 2020 is such a big year for him. I believe he has the talent to be a reliable weapon in the , although that's based on nothing more than the few flashes we've seen from him. I however think those flashes, few and far between they may be, are enough to give him every opportunity to prove his worth.

With the Dallas Cowboys that's not going to be easy. They already have , , and cemented as their top three WRs. Behind them though is completely unknown and that's where Cedrick Wilson can hopefully make his mark. He could prove to be invaluable depth if he can stay healthy.

The Dallas Cowboys will be looking for some solid depth and that's Cedrick Wilson's best chance of sticking around. In fact, he could be exactly what they're looking for. He has good size (6'2″, 200), is a good route runner, has outside/inside versatility, and plays . Those attributes are exactly the criteria the Cowboys should be looking for in regards to WR depth.

Of course, all of this hinges on Cedrick Wilson being able to stay healthy for an entire season.

What do you think? Will 2020 be a make or break season for Cedrick Wilson?
