Lamb is closer to Jefferson then this board wants to believe. The best wide receiver in the playoffs was Lamb. Over Tyreek and Jefferson. Hopefully the Cowboys will continue to force feed him the ball and get away from the Garrett (throw the ball to the open receiver) offensive style.As much as I love Lamb as a play maker, pre-draft I didn't believe he would be a great #1 WR. He was explosive and dynamic with the ball in his hands, everyone could see that. But, he was never considered to be a great route runner and he also had some drop concerns. I assumed he would do most of his damage out of the slot. With Cooper still here I wanted us to draft Justin Jefferson, who I thought was the best possible fit for our offence. When Lamb fell I was happy we took him, but I was torn because I knew Jefferson was going to be great.
And TBTH, I really still don't see CD as a true #1 just because of his body type and play style to me are not what a #1 should be. In my mind I think they should be bigger, more stout, w/ great hands, 100% reliable as a route runner always being where they are supposed to be and being able to make basically all contested catches to move the chains.
But Lamb has become pretty close to that mold so I will give him credit on how well he's grown and developed into a great all around threat.
