Dez BryantThe true freshman wide receiver blossomed late in the season. Bryant hauled in more than half of his 43 receptions the last four games. Highlighted by nine catches for 117 yards in the Insight Bowl, Bryant had 24 receptions the last four games.
Al'Darius ThompsonThe sophomore defensive back from Mesquite has been impressive at times returning kicks in practice. He finally got a chance to showcase his skills, averaging 23.0 yards on three returns.
Ricky PriceThe junior safety had a pass breakup, five tackles and helped provide good coverage on Indiana star receiver James Hardy. Price was a wide receiver last year in the Independence Bowl. A year later, he helped limit Hardy to five catches for 50 yards. By Mike Baldwin Money & Markets j24
