But this year's draft is one of the worst that I can recall in recent memory in terms of WR draft prospects.
There were many last year that peaked my interest in different rounds. (Clayton, White, Murphy, V. Jackson, Bradley, etc.)
But this season there aren't many at all that are jumping out at me.
I like a couple but I'm not excited about any. And FA isn't offering much, either.
I'm just afraid that we are going to get a WR in an early middle-middle round and not only is he going to be average in potential but he is going to deter us from selecting one again in the next couple drafts.

I don't like our season's success relying on a fragile, aging, albeit talented WR. And even if we can get through another season as is, we NEED our future guy to be here immediately to speed the transition for when he is needed.
I particularly like Martin Nance of Miami-Ohio, and Todd Watkins of BYU... Nance is rather large (6-5, 220), and has reportedly run the 40 in under 4.4 seconds... Watkins is tall but thin as a reed, and VERY fast (sub 4.35 40s)... to put it in terms Cowboys fans can understand, Nance seems rather Alvin Harper-esque to me, and Watkins reminds me of Mike Sherrard, before he broke his leg... Hank Baskett from New Mexico might make the list, depending on what kind of 40 time he runs at the combines... any of these three might still be on the board when the Cowboys' 2nd round pick comes up...
Of course, at pick 18 the Boys might have a shot at Santonio Holmes, and would almost certainly find Derek Hagan on the board...
