In The Stars: 5 Unexpected Prospects the Cowboys Could Target in the 2017 Draft

[tps_title]RB Wayne Gallman, Clemson[/tps_title]

In my scouting for Clemson Wayne Gallman above, I highlighted the National Champion running back's ability to play as a complete player with some unique NFL traits.

In need of depth behind , I don't think it would surprise many people if the Cowboys add another cheap rookie in the draft to come run behind the Space Cowboys. What would be surprising is them potentially prioritizing the position enough to grab Wayne Gallman where I have him on my 2017 NFL Draft Board – firmly holding a grade.

Likely drafting a round behind on their board anyway thanks to their draft positioning, the Cowboys would almost certainly have to spend their 60th overall pick on Gallman.

I see Wayne Gallman as a much more serviceable and dynamic replacement to Lance Dunbar. A physical runner that can punish defenses when given a step to hit the hole, Gallman also was featured in Clemson's spread attack as a comfortable pass catcher and effort blocker.

There is no question that 's Cowboys are committed to having success offensively by running the football. Depending on if they target a player like Gallman or not, we'll see just how far that commitment goes.
