Cowboys show faith in CeeDee Lamb by giving him Michael Irvin's jersey number

By

The Cowboys already had a pretty loaded wide receiver corps, yet they elected to draft Oklahoma product CeeDee Lamb anyway, given that he fell to them.

It’s certainly understandable, as many viewed Lamb to be a top-12 talent. When it’s all said and done, he could possibly emerge as the Cowboys’ No. 1 receiver in a few years, whereas Michael Gallup has been slow to develop.

The Cowboys’ got a steal in taking Lamb with the 17th overall pick, and they’re already throwing their support behind him. The team gave Lamb Michael Irvin’s No. 88 jersey number — high praise for their young star.

Giving Lamb the GOAT of Dallas receivers is a big statement by the team.
