Is WR Cedrick Wilson Set For A Productive Role In 2019

If there's anything the Dallas Cowboys have gotten right in past years' drafts, it's finding talent from Boise State.

, , and now have each made their mark in Dallas after coming from Boise State, and even former Boise QB is now the for the Cowboys.

Dallas has also done an excellent job of finding contributors on day three of the as well, such as , , and .

Wide receiver Cedrick Wilson is both a day three pick of the Cowboys, and a former Boise State Bronco.

So he must be poised for greatness, right?

He also shined at the , where he made the most of his first opportunity on a true national stage. Plus, for what it's worth, Wilson was ' 3rd highest graded receiver in the based on his college production.

With route running, athleticism, and big play ability each being key strengths of his game, Cedrick Wilson could be exactly what the Cowboys' passing needs. He can play both inside and out, giving him the versatility the Dallas often values highly.

Cedrick Wilson isn't going to be stealing targets from or putting up numbers, but he can be an excellent compliment to the Cooper/Gallup tandem developing on the outside.

Dallas desperately needs to add talent to their , putting as many weapons as financially possible around young Dak Prescott. If Cedrick Wilson can play anywhere close to his billing, he could be the WR4 addition this offseason needs. And, in a perfect world, maybe he can help to fill the hole will create if he chooses to leave in .

What do you think?
