A look at some wide receiver candidates the Dallas Cowboys might consider this year by the round they likely will be drafted.
Height 5-10 195
Skyy is a lightning – pun intended. He is very explosice from the start and reaches his top speed quickly.Rumours believe he may run a 4.30 or under at the combine. Some speedsters have issues with catching the ball – Moore pt up 1291 yards 10 TD on 94 receptions, with only 4 drops on 125 targets. As a Highschool DB and QB he has a good understanding of route concepts and Zone beaters. His compact frame makes him hard to tackle especially for small DBs.
Other name: Wan’Dale Robinson
Round 3: Jalen Tolbert
Height: 6’3 190lbs
Tolbert has the speed and size to be a vertical thread and to create additional yards after reception. He was mainly used as an outside receiver. With his route running at short and middle routes he creates already nice separation, but he could need some more work especially on deeper routes. He has soft hands and usually makes great catches, on very few occasions he seemed to have drops due to concentration issues (his eyes were already looking for YAC). With long arms he holds off press cover corners and he is willing to take a hit for YAC.
Round 4: Christian Watson, North Dakota State
Height: 6’4 208lbs
Unfortunately, I have a strong believe that latest after the Senior Bowl, Watson will rise to day 2. His mix of explosiveness, speed, contest catch ability makes him a dangerous weapon. At 6’4 – 6’5 and with a 40 time of 4.4, there are not many guys who can cover Watson – and he is doing well in the 50/50 Balls as well. Primarly lined up as the X receiver, he also was named FCS First-Team All-American Returner, too.
