Dez Bryant has been a consistent topic of conversation for the Dallas Cowboys, a team that makes news regardless of whether or not it has a winning record. Ever since being selected by Jerry Jones late in the first round of the 2010 draft, and especially since Jones personally offered the jersey number of Cowboys wide receiver legend Michael Irvin, Bryant has been expected to blossom into one of the league’s greatest.
He’s got the size, he’s got the speed, and he’s got the pedigree—coming out of Oklahoma State during their recent resurgence. Now in his third season, Bryant looks to be finally proving himself as a core member of this Cowboys unit. The offense has been built specifically with him in mind, and he is particularly useful on a team with Miles Austin, who more often than not attracts more opposing coverage.
