Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the Dallas Cowboys in the 1st round with the #24 pick.
The Cowboys get the player they targeted entering the draft in Dez Bryant. He is a playmaker who will be able to thrive in the Dallas offense. With Jason Witten and Miles Austin on the roster, Dez Bryant will benefit from not have the pressure to be the number one receiver as a rookie. Initially expect him to be a deep threat who can stretch the field and be a factor in the red zone as adjusts to the pro game. Bryant was a top five talent who fell to the Cowboys at 24th overall because of character concerns. Ultimately, his success will rest largely on his ability to buy into the system and maintain a good work ethic with the shackles of college removed. He has the talent to be one of the league's best receivers but the work ethic concerns could easily derail him.

Strengths

  • Top wide receiver on the board
  • Good size and plays faster than his 40 time
  • Has good receiver instincts - knows how to get open
  • A play-maker who can beat you deep, in the red zone or in the open field
  • Good hands and catches the ball away from his body
  • Makes adjustments to jump balls in the air
  • A dangerous returner
  

Weaknesses

  • Needs to improve as a route runner
  • Durability.  Was nicked up throughout his college career
  • Possible character question mark due to incident with NCAA
  • He will not blow you away in the 40
