The Cowboys capped off their 2023 draft haul with South Carolina wide receiver Jalen Brooks in the seventh round. The former Gamecock delivered his best season in 2022 with 33 catches and 504 yards.
While he had a lower usage rate. Brooks’ stock comes with his catch radius. After starting his career at DII Wingate, he transferred to South Carolina and made a grab in his second season that put him on the radar.

Dallas made a conscious effort to improve at receiver by trading for Brandin Cooks and having Michael Gallup a year removed from his torn ACL should bode well for the group. As for Brooks, he fits into the picture as a strong receiver that can assist Gallup and CeeDee Lamb on the outside.
