IRVING, Texas -- Pro Bowl cornerback Mike Jenkins introduced himself to the Cowboys' first-round pick by talking a little trash.
"I'm going to be on you," Jenkins told Dez Bryant.
The rookie's response: "I want you to be."
At that moment, Jenkins had a good feeling that the franchise made a wise move to trade up to take Bryant with the 24th overall pick. "I like the fire," Jenkins said.
After one day of OTAs, Jenkins loves Bryant's talent.
Press coverage is Jenkins' forte. Bryant had no problem beating it, getting off a jam and getting a step on Jenkins on a go route. The throw was slightly overthrown, but that just put Bryant in position to do what he does best: Go up to catch the ball.
"I heard a lot of hype about him coming in, and I definitely agree with him being the first pick," Jenkins said. "The guy is going to be a great receiver in this league."
Jenkins said Roy Williams, who had a good workout, has never looked better. Jenkins obviously thinks highly of Pro Bowler Miles Austin. But he believes Bryant can be the best of the bunch.
Said Jenkins: "I think he has all the ability to be the best receiver we have."
Pretty good first impression, huh?
