Dallas meets with first-round WR

Looking for help on offense in the upcoming draft, the Dallas Cowboys recently met with this top WR.

The Dallas Cowboys were one of a handful of teams who have shown significant interest in Missouri wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (6-1, 200) in recent weeks, TheRanchReport.com has learned.

Maclin is currently the No. 2 wide receiver available for the 2009 NFL Draft by Scout.com.

"Maclin is a dynamic all-around performer who excels in multiple areas on the field," notes NFL Draft Expert Chris Stueber. "He possesses elite speed and quickness and poses a problem for the opposition when the ball is in his hands.

"He gets a quick release off the line, runs good routes and flashes reliable hands. He's a playmaker in the open field after making a reception and can take it to the house on any play."

Last season as a redshirt sophomore, Maclin caught 80 passes for 1,055 yards and nine touchdowns playing in the Tigers' spread offense.

The Cowboys are in desperate need of help at wide receiver after releasing veteran Terrell Owens earlier this month.

Roy Williams is expected to be the new No. 1 wide out in the Dallas offense in 2009, unless the Cowboys were to trade up to draft an impact wide receiver.

Maclin, who is viewed as a consensus top 15 selection in next month's draft, would certainly be a welcome addition in the Cowboys' lineup.

Dallas met with Maclin on at least two occasions at the NFL Combine.
