  • Sandy Vander Esch at the NFL Draft

Texas offensive lineman Connor Williams answers questions from the media during the NFL Scouting Combine on March 1, 2018 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN.

The Dallas Cowboys will look to reload at wide receiver after cutting the talented and controversial Dez Bryant. "I think he will keep getting better". While the team added Allen Hurns, releasing Bryant created an even bigger hole. The current roster includes unproven Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin and Rico Gathers at the position.

In two seasons, Gallup racked up 176 catches, 2,690 yards, and 21 touchdowns. Three of his TDs came previous year, during his senior season.

The Cowboys drafted Boise State LB Leight Vander Esch with their first round pick - the 19th overall - on Thursday night. Dallas took another linebacker in the sixth round (Indiana's Chris Covington). The Cowboys have similar plans for him, and high hopes for more production than Austin had while the Rams surged to the NFC West title in the first year under McVay after 10 straight losing seasons. He started only five games last season because of a left knee injury, and missed the bowl game to prepare for the draft. At the moment, the starters appear to be Jeff Heath and Xavier Woods, a sixth-round pick previous year.
