    WR Michael Gallup Draws Dez Bryant Comparisons From WR Coach Sanjay Lal

    If there is one Cowboys position group surrounded by question marks heading into the , it's their wide receivers.

    By releasing veteran wide out and franchise receiving touchdown leader Dez Bryant, hiring a new in Sanjay Lal, and completely turning over the rest of the room through the draft and , the Cowboys have looked to add new blood to a group considered pedestrian a year ago.

    Of course, the addition of caught the eyes of many fans around the league, but it's the Cowboys draft pick which is receiving the most praise thus far.

    Former Colorado State wide out Michael Gallup was one of “my guys” in this draft class, and by selecting him in the third round the Cowboys got an absolute steal. With Bryant gone Gallup will have the chance to prove himself and earn a lot of playing time early on.

    And, by the looks of it, coach Sanjay Lal is already noticing Michael Gallup's abilities.

    Lal told the Dallas media this week that he's impressed with what Gallup has shown thus far in and on his college film. Lal said that Gallup “plays like a man” and that he loves the “violence” which Gallup brings to the table.

    What caught many by surprise, however, was who Sanjay Lal decided to Michael Gallup to; none other than that former Cowboys star Dez Bryant.

    Personally, I think Gallup is a more polished route runner than Bryant, and has the ability to separate from coverage better than Bryant at this stage of his career. Still, though, when you consider Gallup's physicality and strong hands at the catch point the comparison does make a lot of sense.

    Both Michael Gallup and Dez Bryant are never scared to play in traffic, and show off an excellent catch radius. No matter where the ball is thrown, Gallup typically has a chance to make a play on it.

    The of Michael Gallup becoming playmaker for the Cowboys that Dez Bryant was may seem slim, but Gallup possesses all of the tools to be this team's best receiver in year one. Sure, he's just a rookie, but look for Michael Gallup to put the rest of the receivers and this league on notice in 2018.

    In several articles I’ve read since pre-draft on WR Michael Gallup, he’s been described as a poor man’s DJ Moore
    DJ Moore’s been compared to Dez Bryant
    So the comparison is noteworthy in my estimation & I personally see an upgrade in this little known receivers corp of the Cowboys
    & he’s beginning in his career where Dez left off
    Weight gain, strengthening, & reps will yield production from Mr. Gallup in the very near future
    Barring no serious injuries
