Dallas Cowboys Rumors: Is Drafting a Wide Receiver a Priority for Dallas Cowboys?
The Dallas Cowboys are preparing for the 2013 NFL Draft and some of their recent visits with prospects may suggest what positions the team might be drafting in a few weeks. If pre-draft visits are indication, the Cowboys could be looking into adding depth at wide receiver.
Wide receivers Terrance Williams and Josh Boyce visited Valley Ranch this week indicating the Cowboys could be interested in selecting either one of them. Both players came away impressed with the Cowboys after meeting with them and it remains to be seen if the feeling is mutual.
Baylor’s Williams is projected as a second round pick and TCU’s Boyce is likely to go somewhere near the fifth round, so the Cowboys might be looking to pick a receiver somewhere in the mid-rounds in April’s draft. Both players are also local products, which made meeting with them an easy task for a team doing their due diligence.
More than anything, that’s what the Cowboys are probably doing with the receivers, covering their bases. Dallas has far bigger needs to worry about than wide receiver and it would be hard to envision them drafting one before the fifth round. The Cowboys already have Dez Bryant and Miles Austin as their starting wide outs and they have promising talent in Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley, so picking a receiver any earlier than that, unless they get unbelievable value, may not be worth it.
The Cowboys can use help at all positions and while drafting a wide receiver wouldn’t be the worst idea, they need to address other positions before looking at receivers.
