Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has been ranked as the 16th best player in the NFC East, in ESPN's NFC East Blog top 20 countdown.

Bryant, who is entering his third year in the league, has the potential to be one of the most explosive players in the entire NFL -- let alone the NFC East.

Dan Graziano, who is ESPN's NFC East blogger, had this to say about Bryant:

Ranking Bryant here -- one spot ahead of DeSean Jackson, who has admittedly accomplished more in his career to date -- is a testament to my feeling about the player he is right at this moment and the player I believe he is about to become this season. Assuming the Dallas offense gets decent enough line play and stays healthy enough to function, it is my belief that Bryant will rank considerably higher on this list one year from now and that we'll look back and think 16 was low.

Cowboys fans can, at the least, take solace in the face that Bryant was ranked ahead of Jackson.

So far, the top 20 list features Ahmad Bradshaw (20), Evan Mathis (19), Osi Umenyiora (18), DeSean Jackson (17) and now Bryant.
