NFL Rumors: Dallas Cowboys Selecting Wide Receiver in Later Rounds of 2017 Draft

By Nikko Villanueva, Posted: 04/21/17 02:15PM EDT

Dez Bryant will lead a good group of wide receivers in the 2017 season. Despite this, the Dallas Cowboys may need to add one more to bring speed into the position. They can do this by selecting a receiver in the later rounds of the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft. 

In a report by FanRag Sports, it was mentioned that the Cowboys already have plenty of quality receivers. Looking at the current unit they have, there might be no space for a prospect. However, it was suggested that despite all the talent at wide receiver, speed is missing.

This why in the 2017 NFL Draft, Dallas should go for a receiver who can fill this need. The names of John Ross (Washington) and Dede Westbrook (Oklahoma) were dragged into the conversation, but they would likely be selected in the first round which means the Cowboys' chances of getting them are minimal. 

The Cowboys are prioritizing defense in this year's draft and that is likely where they will use their first- and second-rounders. Perhaps in the following rounds, they can accomplish the task of adding a receiver. 

FanRag Sports had two suggestions, they are KD Cannon (Baylor) and Robert Davis (Georgia State). Cannon may be giving up the size standing at 5-foot-11, but it was stated that he is fast, which is what the Cowboys need. Davis, on the other hand, has the size and speed. These attributes are expected to draw the interest of other NFL teams. 

Currently, the Cowboys' plans for the later rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft remain undetermined. As mentioned, what they are looking for in the first two rounds are defensive improvements. Maybe after this, their goals for the next days of the selection process will be known. It is going to be seen as well of they go for that wide receiver.
