Why Dez Bryant Makes the Cowboys one of the better NFC Teams

Many teams passed on the Oklahoma State star wide receiver because of his off-the-field issues. However, the Dallas Cowboys took a gamble with their 24th pick. Bryant may have been picked at 24 slot, but he is possibly the best receiver in the draft. He big strong wide receiver that will be an added weapon for Tony Romo.

With Bryant and Miles Austin in the same lineup, it should give defensive secondaries something to worry about. Romo is the franchise quarterback but he needs weapons. Bryant will be able to provide him what he needs. Bryant can catch the football. The only question will he have his head totally in the game and not let his off-field exploits be a distraction.

Tebow touchdowns in Denver and fans may not be too happy, but you have to wait and see.

Team AFC South faces Team NFC South to see which conference knows how to draft for team needs. Houston Texans receives a draft grade of A because they had few needs to meet.

Super Bowl Steeler, I speak of is quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The question that Pittsburgh organization is wondering out loud in regard to Big Ben is whether to stick with him or should they move him. Pittsburgh Steelers could be really talking trade but with what team?

Who will fill the Dallas Cowboys Picks?

Who will fill the Dallas Cowboys picks can bring many answers since they are few needs that the organization should address. The protection of QB Tony Romo will be tested since the release of veteran Left Tackle Flozell Adams. Safety Ken Hamlin struggled in coverage last year. He was shown the door as a result. If the team thinks Roy Williams will turn things around, then none of the Cowboys picks should be wasted on a wide receiver. For argument sakes, I will say their needs are offensive line, safety, and wide receiver. Dallas will have 27th, 59th, 90th 125th 196th, and 234th draft spots to use to meet the needs stated earlier.
