Can you imagine a scenario in which James Washington, OSU’s all-time leading receiver, winds up alongside fellow former Cowboy Dez Bryant in Dallas?
The latest mock draft from CBS Sports‘ Chris Trapasso says it very well could happen based on the current draft order that has America’s team picking at No. 19.
The Cowboys go with speed on the outside in Round 1 with Washington. Dez Bryant needs someone like his fellow Oklahoma State alum to draw double coverage away from him. Washington’s presence will benefit Dak Prescott too.
Excuse me a moment.
Fam, how cool would this be? Bryant’s been on a downward trajectory since Prescott took over the starting gig from Tony Romo, and the notion has been at least posited at some places that 2017 might’ve been his last round in Dallas.
But if it’s not — and Bryant is a member of Dallas’ team next season (spoiler: he will be), then this would be ideal for both former Oklahoma State alums. Washington could have a possession receiver opposite him in Bryant, and Bryant could have a deep-threat to stretch the field and make teams at least think twice before shading double coverage his direction.
Add in the fact that Dallas has an up-and-comer at QB in Dak Prescott, and it’s hard not to think that this draft day scenario is more than ideal for No. 28.
Here’s to hoping it happens.
