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
09/28/16 - WR Dez Bryant has been diagnosed with a slight hairline fracture in his right knee, but the team is hoping he can still play Sunday. Coach Jason Garrett, speaking to reporters Wednesday, confirmed Bryant's injury and said "we're hopeful that he'll be able to play" against the San Francisco 49ers. "He has a slight hairline fracture in one of the bones of his knees," Garrett told reporters during a conference call. "We don't think it's something that's going to keep him out for an extended period of time but again it's going to be a day-by-day, week-by-week situation." A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the injury potentially could sideline Bryant up to three weeks.
09/27/16 - WR Dez Bryant did not have tests on his sprained right knee Sunday or Monday.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said no MRI exam was conducted Monday but could order the test Tuesday if Bryant's knee is swollen or inflamed.
Bryant was injured in the first quarter against the Chicago Bears but returned to catch three passes for 40 yards, including his first touchdown of the season.
"He certainly finished the game out, and that in and of itself is a good indication," Jones said. "It doesn't mean that he's going to be free of the symptoms or the injury, but, again, we may look at an MRI before this day is over."
