A Middle-Round Stud Receiver

At 6’5″, 205 pounds, there may not be a more intriguing player in this draft class than Martavis Bryant. At Clemson, Bryant was overshadowed by Sammy Watkins. The trio of Bryant, Watkins, and Tajh Boyd were big playmakers in their careers with the Tigers. While many may not believe so, but the Dallas Cowboys need to draft a wide receiver early in this year’s draft.

Obviously, the Cowboys need to draft a ton of defensive players in May’s draft. Dallas needs to draft a few defensive linemen, another linebacker, and they need to draft a safety as well. If Dez Bryant gets injured, the Cowboys lack quality players that can weather the storm. Terrance Williams is a good receiver, but I don’t believe he is a true No. 2 receiver in the NFL. Cole Beasley and Dwayne Harris are good players, but it is clear that they are not starting options.

Like Dez, Martavis plays with a lot of physicality for a receiver. He is a physical specimen, and he is the epitome of what NFL offenses want in wide receivers nowadays. Martavis would be a good option across from Dez because he has the body and the measurements to be a successful No. 2 receiver. He ran a 4.42 40-yard dash, and pairing that with his frame is scary. By drafting Martavis, the Cowboys could move Williams to the slot position. Drafting another receiver would be music to Tony Romo‘s ears. If he available in the third round, the Cowboys should take this intriguing prospect.
