Could Cowboys Land This “Small School” WR in 2020 NFL Draft?

The will likely be looking for a in the upcoming . Whether stays in Dallas or not, 's could use another weapon in the . In some , you can see the Cowboys taking one as early as the . Players like would be a great snatch. However, it's more likely the Cowboys wait to draft a wide receiver assuming Cooper sticks around.

One would think the Cowboys would draft one in the middle rounds. Between the second and fourth rounds is what you'd expect. Of course, the objective should always be to “steal” a player in any pick. Well, let's talk about a small school prospect that might just slip enough for the Cowboys to get a steal.

Everyone loves “small school” prospects. Underdogs are easy to root for. Recently, Draft analyst from Bleacher took to Twitter to share his thoughts on an overlooked WR.

Isaiah Coulter from Rhode Island isn't a player in everybody's mouth, but it's very interesting that Matt handed him a third-round grade. As he mentions, Coutler will probably remain on the board for a bit longer than that due to a very deep WR class.

In his final season, Coulter caught 72 passes for 1,039 yards and found the endzone eight times in 11 starts. Averaging over 14 yards per reception, Coulter is seen by some as a developmental prospect due to a few key traits.

NFL's analyst Lance Zierlein called Coulter a “raw but talented X receiver with NFL-caliber length, speed, and athletic ability.” His route-running and attention to detail have been somewhat criticized, hurting his Draft stock. He also needs work fighting for contested footballs, a key element of excelling in the NFL. Both Miller and Zierlein point out his yards after catch skills, noting them as a big strength.

Coulter did a decent job in the Combine, running a 4.45 40-yard dash and a 36′ vertical jump.

The Cowboys have plenty of young that could be developed into potential starters and Coulter could be a similar element in the team's future. Of course, we'll see how his draft stock changes prior to the NFL Draft.
