Bryant could have been a Raven

The Ravens successfully parlayed the No. 25 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft into DE/OLB Sergio Kindle, TE Ed Dickson and TE Dennis Pitta. In a perfect world and you had the choice between these three players or Dez Bryant, which would you take?

Of course to get Bryant, the Ravens would have had to trade up – and they did try. The Ravens contacted Green Bay with the No. 23 overall pick but they were so enamored with Iowa T Bryan Bulaga that they really weren’t open to trading the pick.

The Patriots at No. 24 wanted a third round pick in order to swap spots with the Ravens.

So if you really wanted Bryant and still do, not only would the opportunity cost to get him be the three aforementioned players but a third round pick as well.

All for a guy who hasn’t exactly shown that he’s the most dedicated athlete on the planet.

I didn't know a lot of this. Though the idea of Bryant is intriguing, I like how our draft played out and am actually pumped about the WR's for once!
