Detailed CeeDee Lamb film breakdown shows why he’ll be a star in Cowboys offense

The strengths and weaknesses of the Cowboys newest receiver.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: DEC 07 Big 12 Championship Game

Everybody’s saying it. The Dallas Cowboys got a good one when they draft Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with the 17th pick in the 2020 NFL draft. It was a really unexpected gift as even the Cowboys brain-trust never once had Lamb fall to them in any of their pre-draft scenarios.

Another NFL observer who liked the pick is our friend Samuel Gold who does detailed film breakdowns of NFL players on his YouTube channel. He sent me the video below where he breaks down the game of CeeDee Lamb and shows you both his strengths and his weaknesses. If you want to know more about Lamb’s game, it’s a must watch.

Here is what Gold had to say about drafting Lamb by the Cowboys.

With the 17th pick in the NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys selected CeeDee Lamb, wide receiver out of Oklahoma. With a combination of good hands, good route running, and a knack for picking up tough yards after the catch, Lamb was one of the biggest steals of the draft. I think he’ll instantly provide value for the Cowboys doing what he does best in attacking zone coverages. In my opinion, once he cleans up a few minor things in route running that I noted in my video, and once he learns to get better at beating press man coverage, he will be a star player for this team.

Check out the video breakdown.
