History Says No To Dez Bryant

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

He is the best WR in this years draft.  He catches anything and everything that is thrown his way.  Despite minor off-field issues, he was still projected as a top 10 draft pick.  Now, he could go anywhere from 12 to 43.  Yet for Dez Bryant the biggest issue is not his “issues” it’s history.  And history is not on Dez Bryant’s side.

NFL teams are aware of this.  Scouts are aware of this and you can bet that the Miami Dolphins are aware of this.  Teams with needs often have no choice but to go with a WR in round 1 when that is a glaring hole on their unit.  For a team like the Miami Dolphins, they may be better served trying to fill the voids at other key holes on both sides of the ball.

    I’m sorry but, Dez White?? Oh, and Nicks plays for the Giants.

    What team drafted Ted Ginn 9th over all? That coach deserves to be fired…never mind.

    I would love to find a Marques Colston (NO) type WR in a late round.

    I Understand why tuna dosent go wr in first rounds. But if not dez then who if not with our 12th than when. We are going to have to adress the issue. Why not take the chance with the best prospect in the draft. I mean we could go outside the box and make a play 4 Marshall but we know tuna won’t role those dice even when he knows there loaded. So what will the teal, white and orange do to get henne the on tool he needs to be a master at his craft I say forget the ney-Sayers say farwell to the haters take this moment in time and re-write ur own history tuna . Damn it I suggest right here and right now u go back to sandlot football huddle up pick the biggest and fastest kid and say go deep the ball will be there catch it

    With the Fins needing several key positions to fill, I think that if they do not trade down, they will take one of the following 5 players. Dan Williams (the most likely choice if he is there), Jason Pierre-Paul (feast or famine pick here), Dez Bryant (my choice, if Tuna does not try to make a play for B. Marshall), C.J. Spiller (best back in draft and we are getting old at this position) or Earl Thomas. I can also see a CB getting drafted an moving Smith to SS. My gut says we need to go offense first because most of the best offensive players will be off the board by the Fins 2nd round pick. It is pass first minded teams that are the cream of the crop in the NFL. The Colts, Saints, Patriots, Cardinals (of the past 2 yrs), Packers, and now the Chargers are all pass happy and winning teams. So Bill, to put fans in the stands, expand our offense and draft either Bryant or Spiller. If they are gone, then draft Williams but remember, Cam Thomas can be had in the 2md or 3rd as well as Troup, or Linval Joseph in the 3rd or 4th. We need to be able to score in a hurry and Defense cannot do that with any consistency.

    teams can always use the excuse that WR’s are risks and they have other holes to fill – especially when they are in the top ten of the draft. But teams still took those chances.

    Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson, and a whole list of other top WR picks were considered risks b/c they hadn’t proved anything in the NFL.

    We could never be in a position to take the best WR in the draft again. And I think it’s a mistake to not even take that risk. Eric Berry, Earl Thomas, Derrick Morgan could all be considered just as much of a risk as Dez.

    Let’s get our offense going – as I’m sick of 14 point average games.

    According to Tim Graham, Bryant met with Tuna & Co. this week, and since it isn’t really publicized I’m remaining hopeful that BP will break the trend and take Bryant, assuming he’s there, at #12. I am on the Bryant bandwagon bigtime – I think he’s as close to a sure thing as you can get and easily the best WR in the draft (with the potential sleeper Demaryius Thomas).
