#27-2012 Dez Bryant WR Dallas Cowboys Bryant is a talent that is stuck with Tony Romo so there are great highs and lows with starting Bryant every week.  His grab against the New York Giants was typical of the Cowboys, sensational but still not in play and not worth anything. Bryant will be a Top 5 WR off the board in almost every fantasy draft.

Retro #27-2002 Brad Johnson QB Tampa Bay Buccaneers This amazes me that he was this high.  Johnson was lucky to play in Tampa and lead them to a Super Bowl. His stats with John Gruden as coach were very good in 2002 throwing for over 3,000 yards 22 TD’s and only 6 picks.

Looking Ahead #27

ESPN-Demaryius Thomas WR Denver Broncos- Thomas is the most talented wide out on the Broncos, but the Welker element makes him more or less likely to reproduce last years stats?

CBS-Tom Brady-QB New England Patriots It’s kind of ironic both guys at #27 have Wes Welker elements to them.  Brady is the best QB of this generation so there isn’t too much to worry about in 2013.
