Bryan Broaddus On Cowboys Receivers

Bryan Broaddus give us his third positional review, this time focusing on one of the most intriguing spots on the roster -- wide receiver. Assuming that Patrick Crayton and Sam Hurd stay with the team, there is competition at almost every spot. 

Broaddus compares Kevin Ogletree with Tashard Choice and offers this breakdown of Roy WIlliams:

He’s not a consistent route runner. Roy is a stop-start-stop kind of route runner. He tends to get high, has to settle his feet and turn. He’s mechanical. He doesn’t have consistent hands. He will fight through press coverage much better than Terrell Owens ever did, but once you get open, you have to make plays. The best thing this guy does is block. 

Bloggers are already breaking down how the position could play out, and it will be the media focus of training camp. The two keys, though, are that Miles Austin has established himself as one of the top playmakers in the NFL, and that Dallas has added a long term talent to steady the position in the event that Roy Williams never pans out, and Austin leaves via free agency in the near future. With those two in place, the secondary issues are much easier to sort out.
