Cowboys trade up to get WR Dez Bryant

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have selected Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant with the 24th pick in the NFL draft.

Dallas gave New England its first-round pick, the 27th, and its third-rounder, the 90th overall, to move up three spots and to get a fourth-round pick, the 119th.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Bryant gives quarterback Tony Romo another potentially dynamic receiver to go with returning Pro Bowler Miles Austin.

It also likely means a lesser role for Roy Williams, who has been pretty much a bust since Dallas gave up several draft picks and a $45 million extension to get him from Detroit midway through the 2008 season.

Bryant was considered by many the best receiver in this draft, an All-American in 2008. His stock slid because of questions about his character, such as a suspension for lying to the NCAA that kept
him off the field nearly all of last season.
