The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins are perennially linked, so we follow suit with having Dez Bryant lined up against Robert Griffin III in our 'Be The GM' series.
Dez Bryant fell to 24th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft amid off the field issues and after a few issues early in his career, the Cowboys have done a great job in protecting him. With glimpses of excellence in his first two seasons, Bryant put it all together in 2012 with 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Bryant combination of speed and strength makes him the type of weapon that will always be able to impact the game.
Bryant ranked 35th on NFL.com's list ahead of the 2013 season and he won't turn 25 until November.
Griffin exceeded the most bullish expectations during his rookie season, completing 258 of 393 pass attempts for a passer rating of 102.4 with 20 touchdowns coming against just five interceptions. Griffin also carried the ball 120 times for 815 yards and seven touchdowns, becoming the type of dual-threat quarterback that makes it seem like you're watching a video game.
Griffin had a 9-6 record as a starter as he led the Redskins back into the playoffs.
The only issue with Griffin, who won't turn 24 until February, is his long-term health. Griffin tore his ACL and LCL last season and we will need to see if he regains his prior form physically and whether he can make adjustments to his style of play to avoid injuries without compromising the aspects of his game that make him great.
