Based on early returns this season, it's looking like the NFL Genard Avery Jersey 's rookie wide receiver cla s could evolve into a generational group.
There were 13 wide receivers taken in the first two rounds of the 2020 draft asfranchises placedbets on the future of their pa sing games with a frequency rarely seen. For comparison, there were ninewide receivers selected in the first two rounds of the 2019 draft, seven in the 2018 draft and six in the 2017 draft.
The Cowboys, for all of their misery this year, made one of the wiser playmaking choices in taking CeeDee Lamb at No. 17 overall. Lamb is likely to surpa s 1,000 receiving yards in his debut season despite joining a crowded offensethat already featured Amari Cooper and MichaelGallup. His acrobatic touchdown catch against the Vikings this past Sunday gave him a defining play, and a Thanksgiving matchup with the Washington Greg Joseph Jersey Football Team will provide the chanceto bolster his national standing.
"Unbelievable Kareem Hunt Jersey body control, discipline and focus," coach Mike McCarthy said of Lamb. "I go back to draft day and I'm so glad he's a Dallas Cowboy."

Of the 13 wide receivers selected in the first two rounds of the 2020 draft, five are already playing at a star level. Lamb is part of that top tier even after Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was lost for the season to an ankle injury, diminishing the T. J. Carrie Jersey quality of throws Lamb receives.
The former Oklahoma college football standout ranks only behind Minnesota's Justin Jefferson in rookie receiving yards.

Lamb's worst game of the season came against Washington on Oct. 25 when hedidn't haul in any receptions in a 25-3 defeat. Washington's pa s defense has been one of the NFL's best, but Lamb could benefit from a healthy Andy Dalton in Thursday's rematch. Dalton was removed because of injury midway through the first matchup.
Dallas is still in the playoff hunt with a 3-7 record because of how bad its NFC East rivals have been. The Eagles lead the Greedy Williams Jersey division at 3-6-1.
So, Lamb remainsin position to makea genuine difference in a division raceat 21 years old, just as the Cowboys hoped he wouldwhen they took him in Austin Corbett Jersey the first round. His diving grab Sunday suggests he can produce without pa ses being placed in precise locations a benchmark of greatne s that might carry outsized importance down the stretch with Dalton under center.
"CeeDee is so good at balls in the air," Dalton told reporters. "For me, I just try to lay it up there and let him go have a chance at it."
