Could Washington State WR Dezmon Patmon be a Day 3 Steal for the Cowboys?

The Dallas Cowboys main focus these days when it comes to the wide receiver position is getting Pro Bowler Amari Cooper, who’s set to hit free agency, signed to a long-term deal as talks between all parties involved have intensified. Also, veteran Randall Cobb will be able to hit the open market as well in March.

Cooper won’t be let out of the building so you can pencil in himself and rising star Michael Gallup as your top two options at receiver in 2020. However, you don’t stop building on a strong area of your team, and in a deep receiver class, the Cowboys could possibly steal Washington State’s Dezmon Patmon on day three of the NFL Draft and add depth at the position.

After only catching two passes for 19 yards as a freshman in 2016, due in large part to him missing most of the season with a knee injury, Patmon would rack up 35 receptions for 379 yards in his sophomore season. As a junior, he took his game up a notch with 61 receptions for 816 yards and five touchdowns. His final season would be a solid one once again with 58 receptions for 762 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns.

Patmon is a very big target at 6’4 225 pounds which gives him the ability to shield off defensive backs and make contested catches. He has surprising athleticism for his size as was on display at the NFL Combine when Patmon posted a 36-inch vertical and an 11-foot broad jump. Also, he ran a shockingly fast 4.48 in the 40-yard dash and did an impressive 15 reps of 225 on the bench press.

If there’s one person that’s a fan of Patmon it would be former player and current ESPN analyst Louis Riddick who endorsed him during the combine.

“HE IS A BALLER,” Riddick tweeted.

Late round gems are found all the time in the draft and Patmon has a chance to be one of them at the wide receiver position. If he happens to be on the board when the Cowboys make their first pick in the fourth round I wouldn’t mind them turning his card in.

  1. I like the thought of getting a physical receiver something they do lack on their receiving core as a forth, cooper holding wr1 with routes and precision, gallop with speed, Cobb (hopefully) slot agility and sure hands. Usually in this age physicality comes from big tes but having that solid wr to run 4 wr sets especially when McCarthy uses multiple wr sets in his playbook, with bring an extra dynamic to an offense in need of a solid big body target. This of course if they decide not to bring dez back.
    As much as depth at receiver would be beneficial the needs on defense are too great to go after depth.
