Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Receiver Dez Bryant - Bryant was widely considered a top ten pick and was easily the best receiver in the draft. The Cowboys have regrets about letting Randy Moss go by in 1998 because of off field issues. They weren't going to make the same mistake twice with another game-breaking receiver who will also have an immediate impact on punt and kickoff returns.
A closer look at the Cowboys picks: Round 1/24 - Dez Bryant, WR, 6-2, 225, Oklahoma State: The Cowboys traded up three spots with New England to secure another weapon for quarterback Tony Romo. He will eventually replace Roy Williams in the starting lineup opposite Miles Austin. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout *Dez Bryant News
11/20/15 - WR Dez Bryant was officially listed as probable after taking part in limited practice for the third consecutive day.
He has been battling foot and knee issues, but is expected to play Sunday against Miami.
11/19/15 - WR Dez Bryant did not practice Wednesday because of knee, foot and ankle injuries. He should play against the Dolphins.
"He's just dealing with a few different things," head coach Jason Garrett said. "It's his foot. It's his ankle. It's his knee. Lot of different things, but Dez is one of the toughest guys I've ever been around and he comes to work every day. Certainly comes to work on Sundays.
"He's a great competitor, so he's going to do what he needs to do to get himself ready to play."
11/10/15 - WR Dez Bryant returned to form against the Eagles in what was his second game back after missing six with a fractured foot. He had five catches for 114 yards and an acrobatic 25-yard touchdown catch from Matt Cassel. Bryant had two catches for 12 yards against the Seahawks the previous week.
"I thought he played well," head coach Jason Garrett said of Bryant. "I think you saw Dez Bryant last night and you saw right from the start. Last week, he was working his way back in to playing football. I don't care how good of a football player you are, how good of a player you've been, you haven't practiced that much and you haven't played the games, it's a transition to come back and start playing in the NFL against good football players. Dez worked his way through the Seattle game, did a couple good things, but I think you saw what he's all about yesterday. He made some big plays in the game for us early on, made them in the middle, made an unbelievable catch for the touchdown, drew some pass interference penalties or defensive holding penalties at the end of the ballgame, so he's a damn good player and he played well. He'll continue to get better and better."
Bryant tweaked his knee on the touchdown against the Eagles and will be again be limited in practice this week. Garrett doesn't expect it to hold him back against the Buccaneers.
11/04/15 - WR Dez Bryant (foot) was limited in practice on Wednesday but it mainly for precaution. Bryant will play against the Eagles.
11/01/15 - WR Dez Bryant can't just be a decoy. The Cowboys hinted at Bryant being used in a more limited role in the week leading up to the game as he returned from a broken foot, but Dallas' top receiver was on the field for the majority of the offensive snaps. He was only targeted six times and made two catches for 12 yards.
Bryant later lashed out with a profanity-laced tirade at the media regarding a video that went viral accusing him of taunting Seattle WR Ricardo Lockette, who sustained a concussion late in the first half and was taken off the field on a stretcher. "I won't ever, ever, ever wish bad on a player that's been knocked down," Bryant said. "Stop with the (expletive). Not once did I say, 'That's what you get.' I got on my knee and prayed for the man."
