CeeDee Lamb is no stranger to the spotlight. In three seasons at Oklahoma Lamb was a Freshman All-American in 2017 and a first-team AP All-American 2019.
In 2017 he set the school receiving mark for a freshman with 807 yards, and 7 touchdowns, on 46 receptions. Last season, as a junior, he completed his rise to being the top receiver in college football by 1,327 yards on 62 receptions. His average of 21.4 yards per reception was the highest in the FBS among players with 40-plus catches.
Lamb already ran crisp routes and had great hands when he arrived on campus but the transition he body into becoming the most NFL ready prospect the Big 12 had to offer in 2019. He left Oklahoma having put on 17 pounds of muscle and truly became an unstoppable force.
Lamb will be a perfect fit for Dallas and here’s why. The Cowboys lost Randall Cobb to the Houston Texans, making Lamb an automatic #3 for Dak Prescott. However, even as a rookie he’ll be tough to handle in one-on-one coverage. Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup will bring the same challenges to opposing defenses leaving ample opportunity for one of these guys to run free each weekend. With Lamb being the new guy in the mix, I like his chances to be that guy more often than not.
