Top 10: Hurns Gets Early Nod As Staff Writers Rank Cowboys' 10-Best WRs

FRISCO, Texas– It hasn't just been the position of conversation for this year, but it's hard to find another season in which one position group has seen more turnover than the wide receivers here in 2018.

Dez is out. Switzer is out. Tavon Austin, Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson have all joined in free agency, along with two drafted players as well.

The group of receivers Dak Prescott is working with this year is vastly different from the players running routes for him 2017, and that also includes the departure of future Hall of Fame tight end Jason Witten. 

But for now, let's focus on the wide receiver position, one that seems to have plenty of depth from top to bottom, despite all of the offseason changes. 

The editorial team of, including Bryan Broaddus, David Helman, Nick Eatman, Rob Phillips, Lindsay Draper and Mickey Spagnola, have decided to take an early stab and projecting a depth chart. 

Here's the team's combined ranking of the Top 10 receivers on the team, as it stands here in late May. As anything else around this team, the list is subject to change and will likely be revisited as the offseason moves along. 

But for now, here are the staff's Top 10 receivers. 

Honorable Mention: Malik Earl and Marchie Murdock

If any team has proven the value of undrafted players, it would be the Cowboys. In fact, others on this Top 10 list are also undrafted. But for now, these two start on the outside looking in. But let's sleep on both Earl and Murdock. They just have a steep climb to try and get into the mix. 




While he was ranked much higher on Bryan Broaddus' individual list, the sixth-round pick was very productive in his two years at Boise State. Just being drafted will give him more opportunities to climb up.
