How so? I've honestly never seen Andre Johnson play, so I'm wondering what you mean.

Dez Bryant is no Andre Johnson.

Andre Johnson is arguably the best wide receiver prospect of all time coming out of the U.
He's pretty special. I like him a lot.

Bryant hasn't run yet so we don't know about his speed. But size, strength and hands are roughly similar at the college level. Dez Bryant is special.

I think his play resembles AJ's quite accurately... AJ is about 15lbs heavier though and probably faster.

Yeah, agreed.
When I said he was like AJ, I mean that they are similar types of players, he's not necessarily as good.
Just like Crabs is like Fitz, but not necessarily as good either.

They are just good comparisons that give you an idea of their style of play.
I only watched Dez in one game. I know I can't really form an opinion on this guys potential but he did not have a good game. He got hit hard early in the game and it seemed to take some confidence away. He had a few drops and he actually stopped on a couple of routes when the ball was in the air. It did not seem like his mind was in the game.

I don't doubt that dez would make a decent pro but I would not place him in the same breathe as other top NFL WR's or of having the potential of becoming a top NFL WR, yet.
Dez was helped off the field (he was walking though). I dont think its serious, but idk
