Draft Watch: Dez Bryant

This will be my second edition of draft watch. I’ve decided I’m going to alternate between offense and defense, so here is my top offensive pick, Wide Receiver Dez Bryant of Oklahoma State.

Bryant is big for a receiver. He stands at 6’2, 220 lbs. He was born in Lufkin, Texas, a small city east of Dallas.  He made the All-State team as a senior, before deciding to go to Oklahoma State, over bigger football programs such as LSU, Nebraska, and Arkansas.

As a freshman, Bryant had 622 yards and 6 TD’s. After a spectacular sophomore year, he was given the Wide Receiver trophy, which is given to the best receiver in college football. He was also named an All-American.

Why we Draft him: He is the best receiver in the draft, and quite frankly, we need receivers. I believe that Devon Bess and Brian Hartline are both going to be good receivers, but not great ones. Bryant is more likely to become great. Our receivers are also relatively small, and at 6’2, 220 lbs, Bryant could defiantly help with that. He’s also a great punt returner, so we could also receive some help there.

Why we Don’t Draft him: Although we need receivers, I think that we’d be better off drafting a linebacker or defensive tackle with our 1st pick. We’d be better off getting a receiver via trade or free agency. It seems as if a deal for Anquan Boldin may open up soon. Also, Brandon Marshall, Vincent Jackson, Braylon Edwards, and maybe even Terrell Owens are free agents, and I hope we make an offer to one of them. Bryant is also a little bit slow for a wideout and can’t always break free from coverage.

In conclusion, I think drafting Bryant would be a decent pick, but I’d much rather see us go defensive with our 1st pick. Drafting a receiver can be too risky. Go FA for receivers instead.
