ESPN Insider: Dez Bryant Leads WR Prospects

This week's ESPN Insider column looks at Playmaker Score, the method for analyzing top wide receiver prospects that we introduced in Football Outsiders Almanac 2009. Dez Bryant has far and away this year's top score, with Dezmon Briscoe as our sleeper to watch and Arrelious Benn as the most likely bust.

For Mardy Gilyard, did you include games played as CB in the count, as suggested by a commenter over there?

A.Benn is this year Hakeem Nicks. Good, physical WR whose style translate very well to the NFL. Probably won't be the best WR in his class (D.Bryant can be if he stays clean, and D.Thomas is probably the prospect with the most upside), but he's the safest WR prospect IMO, and will at least be a solid #2.
