Should the Cowboys Address Their WR Room Pre-Draft?

Entering this , you could argue that the had one of the deepest and most talented WR Rooms in the NFL, but with and Jr. now gone, the overall position group dropped in talent.

While they did re-sign wideouts and and still had at their disposal, the only addition the franchise made to their WR Room was Former Steelers WR , but it's cloudy on what he's going to bring to the team.

As most analysts have mocked them taking a at Pick 24, or at some point in the draft, fans have been gravitating to the idea that their problem is for sure solved if the Cowboys do select someone.

However, with recent reports claiming the franchise was trying to trade for WR before he got dealt to the , and the Cowboys being mentioned as a team who had an interest in trading for WR (before he agreed to a two-year extension with the Texans), it makes you wonder what their actual plan is.

Now I'm not here to convince you whether you should jump on Team Draft WR or Team Sign/ WR, but I'm here to offer a peace treaty–and that is, Why not be an advocate of the franchise going both routes?

Let's say hypothetically, they went and signed a , , , , , or T.Y Hilton. They would immediately get a player who can produce in the , but also they wouldn't have to throw a rookie in the fire so early if they only went the draft route.

To some, those names may not be exciting because of the player's age, , or price tag they may have, but if they flipped the script and went towards the trade route, they could target someone like New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry, WR Laviska Shenault Jr., or WR Tyler Boyd.

As Boyd may sound like the only proven option to fans' ears, Harry and Shenault Jr. are two young prospects who still have the upside to thrive, and despite their situations being different in the terms of why they could be moved, both could excel in different scenery.

If any of those players were added to the Cowboys, the club wouldn't have to worry about selecting a WR prospect early and could look at late prospects such as Western Michigan WR , Texas Tech WR , Baylor WR Tyquan Thornton, and North Dakota State WR .

With that in mind, I do believe the franchise should sign or trade for a WR pre-draft, but also draft a prospect at some point because there isn't anything bad about surrounding with a plethora of weapons, and they need all the help they can get if they want to chase a Lombardi once again.

Forget about skill positions. Build the trenches back up on both sides of the ball.


No WR gets the ball if the QB is on his ass or running for his life all game. We just lost our starting LG and starting RT. This thread is not relevant.
