Cowboys 2010 Draft Class

First Round- Dez Bryant (Pick 24)- Bryant was the best receiver in the draft and the Cowboys are lucky to draft him. Receiver was not a need for the Cowboys however drafting a talent like Bryant Jones was not going to pass up. In 2010 Bryant will make a impact right away on both offense and special teams. The best part about Bryant is he can return both punts and kick offs. The best news about Bryant is he is very fresh. Since he was suspened 10 games Bryant will be coming into training camp very well rested. As the number three receiver to start the season behind Miles Austin and Roy Williams Bryant will be able to make a lot of plays. If William does not play up to expectation it will be hard for the Cowboys to keep him in the starting line up with Bryant on the bench.

Second Round- Sean Lee (Pick 55)- Everyone knew the Cowboys need to add depth the inside linebacker spot but it was not a great need. Saying that Sean Lee is a very solid player who is a tackling machine (138 Tackles in 2007). Lee will get a good amount of playing time this season as a third down back. The main reason for drafting Sean Lee is so he can be a starter with in the next three seasons. The negative about Sean Lee is he has a problem staying healthy. With a few acl surgery Lee has a hard time staying on the field.

Fourth Round-Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (Pick 126)- The Cowboys biggest need was at safety and Akwasi Owusu-Ansah looks like he could fill in nicely.Akwasi Owusu-Ansah can play on special teams right away as both a return man Owusu-Ansah averaged 10.7 yards on 48 punt returns and 24.8 yards on 33 kickoff return. However it will be a year or two till you see him starting on defense. The main problem with Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is that he played in division II. It will take a while until Akwasi Owusu-Ansah gets use to the speed and strength of the NFL.

Sixth Round- Sam Young (Pick 179)- Young is a big 6-8 316 and that what Jerry loves. Young started 50 games a Notre Dame in a pro style offense. Young did not have the best senior season however Young has potential to be a starter one day. In camp Young will be competing for a back up sport behind Marc Colombo at right tackle.

Sixth Round- Jamar Wall (Pick 196)- Texas Tech was not know as defensive power house however Wall looks like a good player. Wall had 2 interceptions his senor season along with 58 tackles. Wall will be a special teams player this season and will have to step up if a d-back get's hurt. The one thing Wall has going for him is that he has practice against Michael Crabtree all last season.

Seventh Round-Sean Lissemore (Pick 234)- Played in only two games in 2009 however he got two interceptions. The main reason the Cowboys drafted Lissemore is because of his speed. At 6-3, 297 pounds Lissemore ran in the low 4.8 in his 40 yard dash. Some saying he looks like another player the Cowboys took in the seventh round and that is Jay Ratliff.
