The Dallas Cowboys have done more cutting than they have signing this offseason. If you know the Cowboys and Jerry Jones, that is a bit of a surprise. Still, with names such as Amari Cooper and La’El Collins out the door, they did not go out and get the big names to replace them.
That likely means that the team is interested in taking this offseason to fix things via the 2022 NFL Draft. While they will hope to fill all of their needs, they only have so many picks and will have to hope that someone can fall to them.
One sleeper who could be a great fit with the Cowboys in round three is Danny Gray.
Gray was a wide receiver at SMU. He originally committed to Missouri, but academic issues had him spending two years at Junior College before going to SMU. Still, he got on the field immediately and was able to work on his draft stock.
He is a bit undersized, but he has the speed to take the top off of the defenses and has great nuance in his ability to get open as well. He can stop and go with great speed and agility and he can squirt into the open field with speed when called upon.
At times drops can be an issue, and he is not the biggest and strongest wideout. Still, that is a big reason he will be on the board in round three. CeeDee Lamb is a possession receiver who needs deep field stretchers to open things up for him.
Michael Gallup can do that at times, but needs someone across from when they line up Lamb in the slot. Gray can move in and out of the slot with Lamb and would add the speed that these two wideouts do not possess. He could help take the Cowboys’ offense to the next level.
The Cowboys will want a wide receiver earlier, but there is a chance the top wideouts are off of the board by their first pick and they wind up focusing on the offensive line early. To be able to come back and grab Danny Gray from SMU could make the whole weekend a win.
Do not be surprised if the receiver who played college in the state of Texas stays there with Gray being drafted by the Cowboys in the third round of the NFL Draft.
