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.

Draft Scout *Dez Bryant News
12/14/14 - WR Dez Bryant was practically invisible when the Eagles pounded the Cowboys 33-10 on Thanksgiving, catching just four passes for 73 mostly meaningless yards. However, he had a big night in the Cowboys' biggest game of the season, catching six passes for 114 yards and three touchdowns in the rematch against Philadelphia on Sunday. "I'm a competitor, and I'm always going to come back strong," Bryant said. "They did a good job on defense the last time, but we knew we could make plays against them, and today we did."
12/05/14 - WR Dez Bryant had six receptions for 82 yards against the Bears. Bryant's 82 yards gave him 1,034 on the season. This is Bryant's third overall 1,000-yard season to tie for third in franchise history.
12/04/14 - WR Dez Bryant finished the night with six receptions for 83 yards. Bryant has a double-figures total of touchdown reception for the third year in a row, though he did not score Thursday for the second game in a row. He has 50 touchdown catches in five NFL seasons.
11/24/14 - WR Dez Bryant has now caught at least one touchdown in each of his last four games. He has also caught two touchdown passes in each of his last two games. Bryant, who remains the Cowboys leader in touchdowns scored, now has 10 receiving touchdowns on the season.
11/20/14 - WR Dez Bryant said he will not be distracted by his contract impasse over the final six games of the season. He said his focus is on helping the Cowboys make the playoffs. He has worked hard since last year's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the season finale that cemented their third straight 8-8 season and fourth season out of the post-season. He has no plans on turning back and letting it slip away this time.
"I'm going to give you my honest opinion. The years that we did go 8-8, I don't think we worked hard enough," Bryant said. "I'm not saying we didn't work, like, I mean the offseason, during the OTAs – not the coaches. That's on us. The first thing that I did right after the game, we lost to Philly, my brother will tell you – I was working out the next day. Just because I felt like ‘Damn, we didn't do enough.' Obviously we didn't do enough, they were the better team. It feels different, it's a lot different – it's a lot different from last year. We're more together, we want it more, we've got the same vision, and that's kind of hard when you've got a team like that."
