Wide Receiver. player. 123. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Alabama. Henry Ruggs III. 5

At the moment, cornerback seems like the popular position for the Cowboys to strongly consider at No. 17 in the first round, but also fans shouldn’t rule out the possibility of Dallas considering a wide receiver like Henry Ruggs III either.

For months, the Alabama product has been considered one of the top wide receivers from this year’s draft class, and it almost seems like a guarantee Ruggs will be well off the board by the conclusion of the first round.

If teams weren’t already high on Ruggs before the offseason officially started, the wideout certainly caught the attention of many during the combine in Indianapolis after putting together an impressive performance with his blazing speed.

Dallas already came up big during free agency by convincing Amari Cooper to return on a hefty deal, and Michael Gallup continues to show plenty of potential for a bright future, but the Cowboys could still use additional help at wideout.

By adding a speedster like Ruggs to the picture, Philadelphia’s defense would have their hands full for years to come each time they face Dallas.

Not to mention, assuming the Cowboys lock Dak Prescott up for the long run at some point this offseason, it will only make Dallas that much more dangerous of a team on offense.
