i wouldn't mind at all taking him if he there, look at detroit? ok, well look at arizona!, they took fitz eventhough they had boldin?.
- no doubt dez bryant would be a major upgrade over morgan, and crabs and bryant would make a great tandem to help alex smith production, not to mention bryant is a speedster and could widen the field. All im saying if berry is still on the board i wouldn't do it, but anybody else i would take bryant if he there.
And what am I looking at? A team that hasn't won a superbowl and likely never will.
Receivers don't win you championships. It's lunacy to draft another top 10 receiver when we have so many other holes which are much more pressing. Josh Morgan is a very capable #2 guy and we can draft a quick slot guy later in the draft.
Larry Fitzgerald was also a MUCH better and more safe prospect than Bryant is and had a connection with Dennis Green.
And Dez Bryant is a speedster? Huh? Compared to my grandmother maybe. That tells me all I need to know about your opinion.
Ehh I'm not for or against Dez Bryant. Personally he reminds me of TO with better hands, the guy runs like he's mad. But we might not need another WR with that pick, could be better picks for us on the board(Eric Berry, Brandon Graham, etc.). That said we do need a speedy guy(Bryant isn't really that guy) or a big physical mismatch(he IS that guy). I'm not sure we'd want to deal with Eugene Parker again.
The little burner types of recievers, the guys who you put in the slot, those can be found later on though. Steve Breaston was a 5th round pick. Mike Wallace from Pittsburgh was found in the 3rd. Mike Thomas was a 4th round pick. Knox, the speedster in Chicago, was found in the 5th. I mean you can find these recievers in the middle of the draft. And with that said, a guy I think maybe we should look at is Emmanuel Sanders. I haven't really seen him play, he's at Southern Methodist U being coached by June Jones, who has a few WRs in the NFL(the main one I can think of is Davone Bess, and I think there was another guy he coached at Hawaii?), and he has a 4.45 40 according to Scott Wright. The team is playing in a bowl game so we should have an opportunity to watch him play. He has 1200 yards and 6 TDs this year. He might be worth a look later on in the draft.
I also like Danario Alexander, who offers the size of Bryant(Alexander is 6'5'') but he's not as athletic and we can probably get him in the 3rd or 4th. He'd be a pretty good redzone target.
