    Probably looking at 3rd round here. Come off the board before Joe Adams who I really like.

    TY Hilton, Joe Adams, KeShawn Martin, et cetera. You can't go wrong if your looking for smaller speedy receivers this draft.

    Some fans are looking for a small "waterbug" WR in the middle rounds who can play the slot and return kicks.

    I'm a skeptic.

    Andre Holmes (6-5, 208)
    Raymond Radway (6-3, 193)
    Teddy Williams (6-3, 200)
    Miles Austin (6-2, 215)
    Dez Bryant (6-2, 218)
    Laurent Robinson (6-2, 194) UFA
    Jesse Holley (6-2, 220) ERFA
    Kevin Ogletree (6-1, 190) RFA not expected to be tendered
    Dwayne Harris (5-10, 208)

    The team is all about big WRs.

    Harris is the only wideout on the roster under 6' and he will be in a battle to make the roster during training camp/pre-season.

    I wouldn't mind adding a little guy, I just don't think it's likely.

    Adding another size/speed target would be more likely, IMO.

    missed one completely

    Jeremy Ebert Slot WR
    5-10 #195

    Ebert ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash, bench pressed 225 pounds 16 times and looked smooth in his route running and receiving. The performance had scouts buzzing and should help Ebert’s draft stock. “Not getting invited to the combine kind of hurt, but I showed up today and showed them what I can do,” Ebert said. “I’ve been told it’s a very deep group of inside slot receivers this year,” Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. “I would put him up there with any of them. We think he’s faster than maybe some people think based on watching tape

    He can take a short pass and make big gains with his athletic ability and speed. Ebert owns a team-leading 71 catches for 1,025 yards and 11 touchdown receptions

    look at this kids you tube

    Man, you can at least see why the Cowboys gave Ogletree such a long leash. Look at his combine numbers:

    4.36 forty
    1.50 10-yard split
    36" vertical
    10'02" broad jump
    6.67 3-cone

    Those aren't just good numbers, those are fantastic numbers. Especially for a UDFA.

    Combine doesnt measure desire. That happens in practice and on the field.

    We need lots of things.

    History says the team does not prioritize small wide receivers.

    That doesn't mean we won't draft one, I just don't think it's likely.

    Re-signing Laurent Robinson is something the team would also like to do, but they are intrigued with youngsters Andre Holmes and Raymond Radway.

    If Robinson comes back, that's 5 spots right there.

    Keeping 6 is possible, but not a certainty.

    Yes Harris is the shortest of all the Cowboys WRs but he has a thick build kinda like Steve Smith whose 5'9".

    I think Harris is more Devone Bess than he is Steve Smith.

    Forgot to add yet another smaller type receiver (5'11 188 lbs) to the list, and a guy I think is a going to be a steal for someone is N.C. State's T.J. Graham.

    Wheels.

    4.41 forty; 6.77 3-cone; and abnormally long arms for his height at 32 3/4" long.

    Wrong forum, but just wanted to plug my free agency steal -- Eddie Royal. Solves punt returns as well.


    I don't see much point in drafting a waterbug before round 5 unless he can excel with returning punts as well.

    We drafted Harris last year. He showed some game in preseason and was just as much of a big time college player as any of the guys available this year. I'm much more interested in seeing his development. Welker never contributed in his first year either. Harris was a machine at East Carolina.

    It will be interesting to see how Harris has developed with an offseason. However, he doesn't have anywhere near the physical skills a lot of the aforementioned receivers do.

    It's no wonder he was productive at East Carolina because they used the bubble screen to him like a glorified hand-off.
