2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Dez Bryant



Strengths:
  • Above average height
  • Good muscle definition
  • Great hands
  • Will come back to the quarterback and present a window
  • Dominant on jump balls
  • Attacks ball at apex
  • Gets off line of scrimmage
  • Coordinated and can adjust to the ball
  • Knows how to set up a receiver and flip their hips
  • Athletic
  • Nice sideline awareness
  • Tough to tackle
  • Explosive punt returner
  • Good running vision
  • Decent amount of upside





    Weaknesses:
  • Route running is still suspect
  • Rounds off digs and deep outs
  • Not very fast
  • Lacks deep speed
  • Could be more elusive
  • Doesn't always generate maximum YAC
  • Needs to eat up cushion more quickly in off man
  • Needs to work on reading coverages as he does not always identify the zone
  • A little sluggish coming out of breaks

    Summary: Bryant is a talented receiver, but he doesn't seem to project as a No. 1 wideout at the next level. He has the skill set of a dominant No. 2 who can really help a quarterback in the red zone and on third down.

    Player Comparison: Chad Ochocinco. Ochocinco and Bryant have very similar builds and great ball skills, but unfortunately lack above average speed.
