Pro Football Focus has named two Dallas Cowboys to their All-Rookie Team for the first quarter of 2020: WR CeeDee Lamb and C Tyler Biadasz. They join Bengals QB Joe Burrow, Jaguars James Robinson, and other first-year players as recognized standouts from Weeks 1-4 of this season.
Lamb has managed to shine even with so many receivers to feed in the Cowboys’ offense. He has 21 catches for 309 yards and two touchdowns in his first four games.
The receptions and yards totals both put him in the Top 20 for all NFL players during the first quarter. CeeDee and Vikings WR Justin Jefferson are the only rookies to appear in the Top 20 on either list.
Tyler Biadasz was also named but even PFF admits that there’s wasn’t much to pick from at the center position. He and the Broncos’ Lloyd Cushenberry are the only rookie center to get snaps so far in 2020.
Biadasz hasn’t been stellar so far but he’s at least been than his competition. PFF has Cushenberry as their lowest-graded center so far this season from among all players.
The only other Cowboys rookie who had a chance at getting this recognition is CB Trevon Diggs, who’s started every game for Dallas this year. While he’s flashed his star potential at times, Diggs has also had his struggles and looked every bit of a rookie.
Ninth-overall pick C.J. Henderson of the Jaguars and the Bears’ Jaylon Johnson, who went the pick before Dallas took Diggs, were the two rookie cornerbacks named to PFF’s team.
Congratulations to CeeDee Lamb and Tyler Biadasz for being honored. We’ll see if Diggs and any other Cowboys rookies can earn their way onto future lists as the season progresses.
