The Dallas Cowboys arguably got the biggest steal in the 2020 NFL Draft when CeeDee Lamb fell to them at No. 17 overall. Most projections had him going in the top half of Round 1, and some even considered him the best wide receiver prospect available in the class.
While most Cowboys fans couldn't possibly be more excited about landing the 21-year-old wideout, Lamb's latest quote should get the entire fanbase hyped.
Lamb will be rocking No. 88 in Dallas, the same number that Cowboys' Hall-of-Fame wideout Michael Irvin made famous. Apparently, Lamb believed wearing that number would give him some extra motivation, reminding him of the expectations that come with wearing that number in Jerry World.
Of course, it's hard to disagree with Lamb on that point, as three-time Pro Bowl wideout Dez Bryant also wore No. 88 in Big D.
Overall, this quote is a great sign for his future. It suggests Lamb understands what's expected of him going forward, and that he's preparing to do everything in his power to meet those lofty standards.
