Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has high hopes for the team's receiving corps with the addition of first-round pick CeeDee Lamb.
Cooper, who signed a five-year, $100 million deal to remain with the Cowboys in March, had a career-high 1,189 receiving yards in 2019 and Michael Gallup had 1,107 yards, becoming the first pair of Dallas wide receivers to post 1,000-yard seasons in the same year since 2006.
Lamb fell to the Cowboys' pick at No. 17 overall after he posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons at Oklahoma and was viewed by many as the top receiver in the draft.
"I think it was a great pickup," Cooper said. "You have to draft the best player on the board. Everybody understands that. He's a great receiver. I think with me and Michael Gallup going for 1,000 yards last year, the expectation is to have three 1,000-yard receivers this year."
There have been only five instances in which a team had three 1,000-yard pass catchers with the last coming in 2008 when Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston each went for more than 1,000 yards.
