Shortly before the NFL draft three years ago, the Ravens flew in mercurial wide receiver Dez Bryant for a visit. The Oklahoma State standout met with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and Harbaugh and went out to dinner with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. However, Bryant was drafted by Dallas with the 24th overall pick of the first round. And the Ravens subsequently traded their 25th overall pick to the Broncos, dropping out of the first round in exchange for second-round, third-round and fourth-round selections used to pick linebacker Sergio Kindle and tight ends Pitta and Ed Dickson.

Dez Bryant is averaging just 6.4 yards on seven punt returns thus far for the Dallas Cowboys, but the Ravens are treating the starting wide receiver and primary punt returner as if he's the second coming of Devin Hester. “Just explosive and trying to make the big plays,” linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo said of Bryant. “His legs just churn so fast and he can cut so well and so fast. He's got big-play potential. So when he's back there, you've definitely got to have all your alerts up and be ready.” Ayanbadejo said Bryant reminds him of the Arizona Cardinals' Patrick Peterson.

He must delegate Aaron Wilson Baltimore Sun The myth that Jerry Jones tries to perpetuate goes like this: Former Arkansas guard, self-made billionaire and boss of "America's Team" actually has it all figured out. Well, not so fast. Bill Parcells acquired a lot of talent still on the roster, and Jones still has plenty of competent, low-key football people advising him behind the scenes. Can the Cowboys keep climbing with Jones running the show? Yes and no. It all depends on how he delegates when cameras aren't watching.

Last week, we looked at the biggest surprises of the 2011 fantasy football campaign . This time around, we will hand out dishonors to the disappointing (non-injured) players who have torpedoed our seasons so far. Try not to cuss too much in the comments section below after reading this list, OK? Quarterback: Philip Rivers, Chargers. His miscues were on display Monday night, but he has been stinking up the joint all year, with 11 interceptions to go with seven TD passes.

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel will look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent. Cowboys 18, Bears 34 (Note: We are looking at Dallas' game before Sunday's bye.) Strategy: The Cowboys used three or more wide receivers on more than half their plays. They attacked the Bears with deep and intermediate throws mixed with short throws to running back DeMarco Murray and tight end Jason Witten. Defensively, they stayed in their 3-4 scheme against Chicago's two-receiver sets and used three or four cornerbacks in clear passing situations.

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith recently chatted with Mark Kriegel of FOX Sports, who asked the 2011 first-round pick about the draft process, how he stacked up against his peers, what Ray Lewis said to him over the weekend and which number he plans on wearing in Baltimore. One thing we’ve learned about the Ravens’ newest cornerback is that he has plenty of confidence. Smith thinks he is the best cornerback in this class , ahead of Patrick Peterson, who went fifth overall to the Cardinals, and Prince Amukamara, who went 19th to the Giants.

The NFL draft has become as staged as a headlining event in World Wrestling Entertainment. WrestleMania and the annual draft have become equals. The similarities are stunning, even hilarious at times. Both have a lot of buildup and showmanship. Both are highly predictable but have enough unpredictability to hold your interest. There is drama and suspense, and both events are choreographed well enough to make the networks pay out millions of dollars. As famed boxing promoter Don King would say, "Only in America."

Here's a look at recent mock draft projections for the Ravens, who hold the 25th overall pick in this month's NFL draft: • DraftCountdown.com has the Ravens selecting Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas with the 25th overall pick. At first glance Baltimore appears to be four deep at wideout but looks can be deceiving. Boldin has a long history of injuries, Derrick Mason is now 36-years-old, Mark Clayton has regressed each of the last three years and nobody knows what to expect from Donte Stallworth.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Jay Cutler threw three touchdown passes to guide the Bears to a stunning 27-20 victory over the Cowboys on Sunday, the second straight loss for the highly touted hosts. Cutler was 21 of 29 for 277 yards and outdueled Tony Romo (34 of 51, 374 yards, TD), who threw two interceptions. Dallas also lost the ball on a fourth-quarter fumble and fell to 0-2 for the first time in nine years. "Any time you get in this position it's very difficult," Romo said.
