Dak Prescott Speaks Highly of Potential WR2 Noah Brown

The has been filled with questions regarding who would step up and assume the role of WR2 until can recover from a torn ACL he suffered in January. After got hurt, it became even more unclear. I left the thinking , as a rookie, would end up with that spot on the , but yesterday's comments from suggest who could have the first chance while the WR room gets back to full strength.

Prescott spoke highly of , saying he has earned his trust from day 1. “It's only gotten greater and greater,” he said. “You want to find a guy who's the epitome of being a professional – it's Noah Brown on and off the field.” Brown only has 39 career receptions for 425 yards since 2017. He has spent most of his time with the Cowboys as a blocker in the run game. Let's not forget was in the same type of situation, and he had his best year as a pro in year four after logging just over 350 yards in his first three seasons.

Brown has done the first thing a wideout needs to do for his QB: gain his trust, be a guy he knows he can look for if something like a broken play happens. I am not saying Brown needs to explode and have over 1,000 yards as Austin did, but look what did last season with Prescott after not mustering much of anything his first two seasons as a pro. If Brown can duplicate what Wilson did a season ago and end the year near 600 yards and a handful of touchdowns, that is a success. Gallup will be back early in the season and relieve some pressure.

Wilson was a sixth-round pick, and Brown was a seventh-round pick. These things happen for WRs who played a minor role on a football team for several years. Questions still need to be answered about Brown, and until week one, we don't have an exact idea of who will do what behind ; although unproven just yet, these things happen from time to time, and as it sounds, Brown will now have his opportunity.
