After the Cowboys selected Dez Bryant in the first round of the draft, wide receivers Patrick Crayton and Sam Hurd have asked the team to trade them, and Crayton has announced that he's skipping all voluntary offseason workouts.
I can see Crayton's point, because he's theoretically being bumped from the third receiver to the fourth (assuming Roy Williams sticks around) when he could contend for a starting job on a team like the Raiders or Rams, but ... Sam Hurd? He of the 31 career catches in four seasons? Shouldn't he be thankful for any job he can get? Is this the worst player ever to request a trade?

Antonio Brown is a late-round steal, but which active WR has beaten the odds of the draft and his QB? We studied the breakout seasons of the 20 all-time leading receivers and recent hidden gems. How important is QB play in developing a WR?
