Everyone knows that Jason Witten, Miles Austin and Dez Bryant will be the top three options on the Cowboys, not necessarily in that order. Don’t be surprised if running back DeMarco Murray catches more passes than whoever ends up claiming the Cowboys’ third receiver role.
Murray, who had 71 receptions and five touchdown catches as a senior at Oklahoma, offered a glimpse of his receiving ability during Sunday’s Blue-White scrimmage. Murray made a spectacular, leaping catch over linebacker Sean Lee for a big gain on a wheel route.
Murray is listed as our 11th RB but has an ADP of early second round. He went in the first round of our 4for4.com mock draft, which will be released soon, and this news could only bump up his value a bit. He's certainly one of those RBs to target if you pick late in the first round.
