Brice Butler, WR
The Dallas Cowboys traded a fifth-round draft pick in 2015 to acquire Butler’s services with the hope they could tap into his potential. They hoped he could help fill the void left by Dez Bryant while he was recovering from his injuries, and although he has shown flashes of a starting caliber WR in the NFL, his inconsistencies could be his downfall.
Much like Lucky Whitehead, Butler could have seen the Cowboys draft his potential replacement with the selection of former USC WR Noah Brown.
Brown is a talented, but unpolished WR. He plays special-teams (unlike Butler) and might just be the best blocking receiver on the roster. If Butler isn’t far superior to Brown in off-season practices, he likely won’t be on the Cowboys roster come Week 1 of the season.
Butler however might have a little bit more trade value than Whitehead. He has a rare combination of size and speed, which could entice another organization to take a chance on tapping into its potential, much like the Cowboys did.
