Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has established himself as one of the league’s best at his position. He isn’t content with his level of play yet, and recently said he wants coaches to be honest with him and has been soaking up all constructive criticism directed his way.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett added some confirmation to what Bryant is saying, praising Bryant and his thirst for criticism to improve his route-running.
“He wants to be great,” Garrett said, via ESPN Dallas. “He’s always been someone who accepts coaching, and he understands it. The film is a great tool. It doesn’t lie, and there’s rarely an instance when you as a coach put something up on the screen and say, ‘What do you think? You coach yourself.’ These guys know when it’s right and when it’s wrong. It’s our job to point it out to them and highlight the stuff that’s good, and make sure we recognize the stuff that’s not quite so good, either, and how we can make it better.”
“He’s a pro. He wants to be great. He listens to coaching, and he really gets better each and every day.”
Bryant might be a player to consider taking high in your fantasy draft with Tony Romo healthy and behind an improved offensive line.
