WR Dez Bryant: More Questions Than Answers
Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant is regarded as the top receiver in this years NFL draft class. For all of Bryant’s talent there were concerns looming around him heading into his official workout this week.
Bryant had a questionable suspension from the NCAA early in the 2009 season and then signed with the same agent (Eugene Parker) as Michael Crabtree. While the suspension shouldn’t be held against Bryant, the fact that he signed with Parker and because he didn’t participate at the combine won’t help him.
Since Bryant chose not to participate at the combine his work out this week is all important for NFL teams to see more than just tape of this talented, potential first round pick.
Coming into the workout some like wondered if Bryant would even crack 4.6 with his fastest 40 yard dash time. It took Bryant a couple of chances, but eventually he did break the mark with a 4.52 time.
NFL Draft Outlook And Beyond
While Bryant is almost a lock to be selected by the middle of the first round this year it’s hard to say if he will be a productive NFL receiver. From watching him play in college it is easy to see that he has the physical tools to be a true No.1 wide out in the pro’s at some point.
However, you just never know what a young man is going to do once a football team pays him millions of guaranteed dollars, and it changes his life.
Last year it looked as if all Michael Crabtree cared about was money but then we all found out the young receiver cares about being a great pro. He proved this by being ready to start right away and playing every snap at a productive level.
Now we must find out if Bryant has the same desire as the Texas Tech standout.
