James Lofton, the hall of fame wide receiver, has some good words for Cowboys Dez Bryant. Lofton’s word goes a long way, because he knows what makes a great wide receiver, seeing as though he was one himself.
You can look at the physical talent, the size, the speed and the strength and after that you kind of throw in a little skill. When the guys get a little older and the skills and the physical tools start to diminish a little bit, then the savvy comes in and the smarts work into play. It’s a curve. Right now he’s at his physical peak. If he can keep away from the little nicks that slow a person down during the course of a season, he’ll obviously be a phenomenal player.
It seems like Lofton believes Bryant has so much more upside left in him, but we will just have to wait and see; because Bryant has had to deal with a few of these ‘nicks’ throughout his career.
