Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant was active, as usual, on social media during last week’s 2021 NFL Draft. And the veteran free-agent wide receiver had plenty to say, as usual, about the Dallas Cowboys.

Specifically, Bryant believes Dallas erred by not targeting former Michigan cornerback Ambry Thomas, who was drafted in the third round by the San Francisco 49ers.

For those who were glued to Twitter last Thursday night, Bryant was tweeting almost pick-for-pick his reaction to the Draft. As the Cowboys were concerned, he remarked on the Denver Broncos sniping top cornerback Patrick Surtain at No. 9 overall, one spot before Jerry Jones and Co.

“That was cold blooded Denver,” Bryant said, adding, “I believe Jerry really wanted Surtain.”

Perhaps Bryant was right, because Dallas would move down from No. 10 to No. 12 in a surprising trade with the rival Philadelphia Eagles, honed in on the next-highest-rated prospect on its board: former Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons.

“Cowboys are on the clock!!!” Bryant exclaimed.

“Dallas have to go linebacker.. I think that’s who he really want,” he said.

Parsons was a nice consolation prize for a decrepit Cowboys defense, an instant-impact starter with immeasurable upside. But, in Bryant’s estimation, he remained just that: a consolation. Surtain (or South Carolina CB Jaycee Horn, who went No. 8 to Carolina) was supposed to be the choice for Jones, whose reaction was easy to read.

“Yea Jerry is super pissed lol,” Bryant concluded.
