For a complete description of the known part of the anatomy, see:

Carpenter, K., D. Russell, D. Baird & R. Denton.  1997.  Redescription of
the holotype of _Dryptosaurus aquilunguis_ (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the
Upper Cretaceous of New Jersey.  Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 17: 561-573.

For answers to your other questions, wait until my new phylogeny to be
published next year... :-)
