Cowboys WR Dez Bryant Already Running With The First Team

The Cowboys drafted WR Dez Bryant in the first round so he was expected to play an important role in the offense.

The only problem was that there are two other bona fide number ones at receiver for the Cowboys. Would Bryant be a number one right away? The answer would be yes.

"It's crazy -- just a lot of weapons at one time on the field," Bryant said. "It's going to be hard to stop. ... It's exciting to be able to be out there with those guys. I felt like coach put me out there for a reason. They're trying to get me to learn everything as soon as possible. I'm doing a good job and it's just great."

All is good for Bryant but his teammates can't necessarily say the same thing.

Bryant's presence will likely push Roy Williams off the field in lots of situations. The Cowboys gave up a king's ransom in a trade last year for Williams and then committed quite a bit of cash to him. The results weren't quite what either side expected. On the flip side, Miles Austin had a breakout year and some reports suggest he'll receive a long-term deal before the end of the 2010 season.

However it all works out, the Cowboys are likely to enter the 2010 season with three number ones at receiver.
