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

12/27/16 - WR Dez Bryant had a fine night catching the football versus Detroit.
He made a circus touchdown catch to tie the game at 21 late in the second quarter and capped Dallas' scoring with a 19-yard touchdown in the fourth. He finished with four catches for 70 yards.
But following the game, all anyone wanted to talk about was Bryant's TD pass.
On first-and-goal from the Lions' 10, Bryant took a pitch from quarterback Dak Prescott on a reverse going left. But instead of trying to get the edge, Bryant tossed a 10-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jason Witten.
"I was really nervous," Bryant said. "When we executed the play, I was like, 'Yes. That's what I'm talking about.' I hit them with the stealth carry. I threw the ball, I kind of looked and turned it around and I knew it was complete."
It was Bryant's first touchdown pass as a pro and it gave the Cowboys a 35-21 advantage with 4:03 left in the third quarter.
