The Dallas Cowboys offense is a mess and the only way to fix it is to add multiple pass-catchers, which they do in this seven-round NFL Mock Draft

This offseason, the Dallas Cowboys front office tried to convince us all they could win with less talent than they had a year ago. They were proven incorrect out of the gate but will blame their issues on injuries as Tyron Smith (predictably) was lost for the year and Dak Prescott suffered a hand injury and will miss a couple of months.

Having said that, they’re not going to be able to hide their head in the sand forever. By the time this season ends, even the Jones family will have to admit they need more pass catchers. That’s where they focus early in this mock draft, which starts out by bringing in a Texas-born wideout who can help their offense in a big way.

Round 1: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

Dallas had one of the best trios at wideout over the past two seasons, but then ruined it all by sending Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns. Throw in the fact that Michael Gallup is still recovering from a knee injury as well as Jalen Tolbert being unable to make his mark and this receiving corps is a mess.

In order to try and ensure it never gets this bad, they should target the position early in 2023, which is what happens here with the selection of Quentin Johnston from TCU. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 193-pounds, Johnston is a big target that has made some impressive catches in his career.

Lamb will continue to be the No. 1 target but adding someone who can take advantage of single coverage while also drawing attention from Gallup would be a great move. Johnston does exactly that — and can step up when injuries happen and thin the corps out.
