Anything the Dallas Cowboys do causes waves on social media, but especially when it's a huge event like the first round of the NFL Draft. It was no surprise, then, that the drafting of WR CeeDee Lamb tonight caused a big reaction!
Cowboys Nation weren't the only ones thrilled to welcome Lamb to Dallas. Some of his new teammates also got in on the action.

Dallas area and national media personalities also had some nice thing to say about the Cowboys pick.
Teams always talk about taking the best player available. The Cowboys absolutely did that by taking CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall pick pic.twitter.com/c3xiyM3WDR
I'm still staring at that #Cowboys CeeDee Lamb pick in disbelief. What a bonkers offense. You take the best overall talent on the board at that point and worry about the rest later.
And perhaps the most intriguing of all, former Cowboys WR Dez Bryant gave his blessing.
Cowboys got a stud!!!! Congratulations Lamb

Does CeeDee Lamb's arrival in Dallas hurt Bryant's chances of returning to the team in 2020? Could the rookie wind up wearing #88, carrying on the legacy of receivers taken in early rounds being given the hallowed number?
What a night for the Cowboys!
