If/when we lose Marshall, I hope we get Dez to replace him. Living in Oklahoma I got to see him play a lot and the dude is a stud. He's not as good as Marshall but he definitely has some skills.

i dont. And thats nothing against Dez. I just dont see the point of replacing a proven young stud with a question mark. Id prefer to use the picks to continue rebuilding the lines and front seven. Teams without great receivers win SB's...teams without great lines dont.

Let's evaluate the logic in this.

We will trade a young proven pro bowl player, for probably a second round pick, because trouble seems to follow him.

We will try and replace him by using our high first round pick on another WR who trouble seems to follow.

In the best case scenario, Dez Bryant becomes the equal of B-Marsh in production.....but there is a decent chance he could be as much of a pain in the ass as B-Marsh is.

Flawed logic....I think Dez Bryant is going to be a heck of a player, but the logic in all of this is flawed.

The things that turned me off Dez are:
-his choice in agent/diva consultant
-seeming unprepared for his pro day (apparently it was like he'd never done a short shuttle before)
-not going all out during his pro day drills
-being seen with Pacman, at all

But I wouldn't call him trouble, and I won't cheer against him because he's been dealt such a brutal hand in life. His mom was 12 (or 13, reports are conflicting) when he was born, and the guy who fathered him was 40 ffs. The fact that he made it to college at all blows me away, especially when you consider that he has a learning disability. I read a good anonymous take on him the other day: "Dez is goofy, but he's not a criminal".

*edit* I can't find the article where I read those ages, hopefully they're right.

Im not saying we should draft Dez but if we plan to draft Dez Bryant than we better not trade Marshall before the draft, it be better to draft Dez before trading Marshall if we trade Marshall before than we kind of just project our pick to everyone and someone who wants Dez might jump in front of us.

lol Dez Bryant has never had off the field issues with the law, hes a saint compared to Brandon Marshall and hes definitely way smarter than B Marsh.

he was a big 12 2nd team Academic All-American as a sophomore in 2008 so hes not a dumb kid. http://www.big12sports.com/pdf5/359244.pdf?DB_OEM_ID=10410

And also a rookie is going to get a lot of guaranteed money. Honestly, I would rather give Marshal an 11th pick rookie contract.

I'm not gonna disagree with that but I am not gonna agree with it either just because we don't know what Dez will be in the NFL Marshall is bigger and proven. Dez is faster and unproven.

I don't wanna get rid of Marshall but if we have drafting Dez Bryant will help ease the pain

People just don't understand what kind of talent Dez has. He might be a bust. This is very possible but the guy also could be a major star.

I'm just saying, alot of folks here want to get rid of BM because of his past and that he might be a risk because he could face a suspension. They like his on the field production but fear the suspension. Well, Dez would be a risk too. He's an uknown in the NFL. Could easily be a bust. In fact, I think it's less of a risk to keep Marshall. A 1 year suspension is still better then having wasted a #1 pick on a bust.

We don't all wanna get rid of Marshall in a perfect world I would love to keep Marshall draft Dez and play Royal in the slot or keep Marshall and don't draft Dez either way.

reality is it looks like Marshall is going to be shipped away so bring on Dez :thumbsup:

I don't see the point of trading Marshall for draft picks, and using it to pick up a receiver. And you're right, we have needs on both side of the line...

Pacman was just there for his own workout. He had nothing to do with Bryant. Just more media lies to drag Bryant's stock down.

And...Bryant got screwed by the media again because they didn't investigate. Here's the scoop on he and Pac-Man.

They've both been training with renowed trainer Duke Rousse, a partner of Deion Sanders' "Prime U". They've formed a commraderie since they compete against each other every day. So, Bryant's moral support comment was simply the truth. Pac Man will probably be at Bryant's Pro Day for the same reason.


Article on Rousse, his clientele, etc...

Honestly... of all the 'suspensions' I've seen and read about in the NCAA.... Bryant's is at the very BOTTOM of the list as far as something I consider to be serious. I think it was ridiculous that he got suspended at all, and was purely because of the minute laws of a very silly rule.

Now.. I absolutely HATE the idea of trading away a STUD like marshall, only to turn around and draft a player at his same position. I think thats the absolute dumbest thing a team can do. But I wouldnt pass on him, at all, based on his NCAA suspension.

Steve Sewell

LOL has anyone ever seen Bryant's film? This kid has the measurables and skill set of a major NFL talent. It just risky to draft a receiver high because you are almost guaranteed to lose him come free agency if he is a break out player.

If we do trade Marshall, I'd bet on us taking Golden Tate or Arrelious Benn. Benn in particular would be a solid pick in the 2nd.

At least ten teams have taken Bryant off their draft boards.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/04/13/more-than-10-teams-have-taken-dez-bryant-off-their-draft-boards/

Obviously a great talent, but as we've seen first-hand a headcase WR is just too much of a pain in the ass.

Am I doin' it right?

No because Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, and Sidney Rice are not thugs. But let's be honest Brandon Marshall just as big of a rap sheet as his resume. On the other, Dez Bryant is a real big diva similar to Micheal Crabtree. So I really don't get why your trading away a big diva in Brandon Marshall for another diva in Dez Bryant.

Report: Bryant off Jags, Browns' draft boards
<!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->Dez Bryant - WR - CLG - Apr. 13 - 8:55 a.m. ET

Multiple sources tell the Florida Times Union that Dez Bryant has been removed from the Jaguars' draft board due to character concerns.
A Browns source also revealed to SI's Peter King that Bryant is no longer on Cleveland's draft board. The Jaguars have a history of drafting bad seeds at wide receiver (Matt Jones, Reggie Williams), and don't want to repeat the mistake, even if Bryant is a far superior talent to both. The Jags are supposed to have more interest in high character guys like Riley Cooper (Florida), Taylor Price (Ohio), and Eric Decker (Minnesota) in the middle rounds.
Source: Florida Times Union

Still, as King points out, Bryant has a number of teams working him out, with visits scheduled with San Francisco, St. Louis and Denver.

Denver has been the popular choice for draft speculators as the team is expected to trade wide receiver Brandon Marshall sometime in the next week.

But if one thing is certain with Bryant, it's the uncertain.

Not only is he a quality good receiver but has some familiarity with the system...

Would love to get Tate. He plays much bigger than his size with his leaping ability and ability to point the ball at it's highest point. Has a real ability to come down with the ball in a crowd and is a perfect fit for us with his run after catch skills.

Pacman was just there for his own workout. He had nothing to do with Bryant. Just more media lies to drag Bryant's stock down.

I'm aware of this. Still think associating with a guy like him just before the draft when he is the subject of character concerns is just another example of poor judgment.
