Full Scouting Report On WR Michael Gallup, Cowboys' 3rd-Round Pick

FRISCO, Texas – A full breakdown of the Cowboys' second-round draft pick (No. 50 overall) Friday night:

Name: Michael Gallup

Position: Wide Receiver

College: Colorado State

Height/Weight: 6-1/200

The Rundown:

Gallup posted a Colorado State record 100 catches for nearly 1,500 yards last season and became only the fourth consensus All-American in school history. Gallup, a Biletnikoff Award finalist last year, is a polished route-runner with sure hands and solid speed (4.5-second 40-yard dash). The former junior-college transfer scored 21 touchdowns in two years as a starter for the Rams.

How He Fits In:

Wide receiver was widely considered a top need for Dallas after the club parted ways with veteran starter Dez Bryant earlier this month. Free-agent signings Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson add veteran depth, but Gallup will have an opportunity to earn snaps on offense.

  • This is a guy that could be in the top three of the position or could be lower depending on how you feel about him.
  • There are scouts that really like him and others that have him behind some of the other receivers, like Christian Kirk and D.J. Moore.
  • The film shows a player that is a good route runner and finisher.
  • He'll need some initial work coming off the ball with his release but that shouldn't be too difficult to fix.
  • His downfield separation is good with big play ability in his hands.
  • What is most impressive about his work is his ability to carry his routes anywhere on the field.
  • He is not limited to a few routes but is open to various types.
  • Gallup gives you options, which can't be said about many of the receivers in this draft.

Next Cowboys Pick: 4th Round (116th overall)
