There were 31 wide receivers taken in the 2010 NFL draft, with the Cowboys moving up to select Dez Bryant
out of Oklahoma State with the 24th pick. Looking at the receivers taken in that class and how they've produced, Bryant is emerging as the best of the bunch.
In three seasons, Bryant leads all the receivers in his class in yards (2,871), catches (200) and touchdowns (27). Denver's Demaryius Thomas
is closest to him in yards with 2,268 and Tampa Bay's Mike Williams
is closest in touchdowns with 23.
The Steelers' Antonio Brown
(2,062 yards and seven touchdowns) has also shown himself to be a dynamic receiver, and of course you can see the talent in Seattle's Golden Tate
(1,297 yards and 10 touchdowns). But Bryant's big-play ability, given his increasing understanding of the offense, is making him the cream of the crop.
In terms of becoming one of the best receivers in the game, he's still needs more seasoning before he's mentioned with Calvin Johnson
, Larry Fitzgerald
and Brandon Marshall
