Normally a DEV table does not have to have "current" or all data. Just ddl and some data.
So it depends of what you/customer want. Is the table in PRD too big?
Is nice to have the same records that you had before the drop?
Can you just get fraction of PRD rows?
Well either way you can create the table on DEV again. Use the Prod table to recreate it on DEV.
Then you see what options you have to populate it.
