Carter ranks Dez Bryant sixth on his list of the top WRs in the NFL, but likes Bryant's upside most of all.
"What I love about Dez is that everything you're starting to hear about him is encouraging. He's making good decisions. It's clear that football is important to him. He's getting into better shape. He played at a Pro Bowl level last season (92 receptions, 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns), and he should be even better this season. Of all the players on this list, he may have the highest ceiling."

Seeing A Difference In Garrett - B. Broaddus, DallasCowboys.com
Broaddus thought Garrett was "honest and at times even blunt" with his assessment of the Dolphins game:
"Garrett has always been positive when accessing [sic]his team even to the point of [sic] I knew what the answer was going to be before the question was finished being asked. This afternoon was a different story all together. His tone and his message was very revealing in what he liked from his squad but there was also a message of what players, he expects more from in the coming weeks. In camp, it’s about learning things about your team, but today I learned something about the head coach and I liked what I heard."
