The first round rookie receiver has stolen the headlines day in and day out at The Star, as fans continue to build the hype around this wide receiving corps as a whole. Cowboys executive Stephen Jones spoke about Lamb's hype on 105.3 The Fan this week, discussing just how big an impact the rookie can have in 2020.
“I think he's going to make a big big difference in our offensive football team, and for that matter even special teams. It's not going to surprise me to see him back there potentially helping in the return game as well” – Stephen Jones.
Special teams, you say?
CeeDee Lamb did work as a punt returner while at Oklahoma, averaging 8.8 yards per return on over 50 returns. Of course, the Cowboys did once use a first round stud wide out as a punt returner in the past, to the tune of two touchdowns in 2020.
That player was Dez Bryant, who Lamb has earned comparisons to over the course of Cowboys Camp.
Lamb is set to make a run for Rookie of the Year honors this season, and a couple big punt returns would go a long way for both his individual accomplishments and team victories in 2020.
