    I'd be more concerned about the dropping of a couple balls.
    I'm more concerned with the fact he said he does not like to run slant routes. Which I think he means he does not like to get hit.

    Valvin Johnson did not play for Robinson. Johnson played in a completley diffrent offense

    ;ets not forget he hasn't played football since Sept 19, it's not like he's got a really busy schedule

    top 10? i dont even want him at 29. He's a mess waiting to happen.


    And why would he lie about forgetting his shoes? The 40 time is so valuable that he has to give the "I'm not as fast without my shoes" excuse?

    Again...Crabtree was expected to run around the same area...he didn't run at all. Also I have no clue what him not playing since September has with him remembering his shoes today...

    Twenty teams expected to attend today's workout for Oklahoma St. WR Dez Bryant. Last week, Bryant clocked a 4.32 in the 40-yard dash.

    Found this on footballsfuture. Maybe he remembered his cleats that day?

    38-vert and 11'1 broad jump today too...I heard.

    Stop overvaluing 40 time...I'm surprised that a total of 0 people mentioned that 40 times seem down this year...or at least some down from what they "should be."

    he was suspended. he didn't run at indy. he moved his pro day. he showed up at adam pac man jones pro day. he ran kinda slow and claimed he lost his shoes.

    it's a trend... and it goes downward

    1. It's a trend if you're looking for it to be a tred.

    2. He didn't run at Indy with a whole lot of top prospects who came up with a "hamstring injury."

    3. So?

    4. Again, so? He also talked to Deion Sanders and got suspended for it. I doubt he went to the Pac Man pro day to get Pac Man's thoughts on how to f*ck up a promising NFL career.

    5. When did the shoes become an excuse he made? He just said he forgot his shoes. Must you dig so low for a knock? I guess it shows unprofessional habits or something, but the thing is he plays WR extremely well.

    Yes, but VERY fixable...

    Put him around some vets, he'll shape up.

    We aren't talking about lethargy addiction or drugs here, we're talking lapses of judgment and some less-than-smart decision making.

    Maybe he will. You really have to question the intelligence of some of these players who do things right before the draft that can leave them in a bad light. for a team that has had a Brandon Marshall or Terrel Owens head ache in the past these things do raise questions and drop draft stock. (I'm not saying he is either Owens or Marshall.)

    The only 3 guys who haven't been diva prospects but were legit elite prospects were AJ, CJ, and Fitzgerald. Everyone else came with similar talk.

    .
    i dont understand why the suspension is glossed over

    the dude broke rules, lied about it and was lost for most of the year

    that's not something the NFL will easily forget about

    people bring up crabtree... that dude broke his foot and played on it in the bowl game. at least ya know he's committed... whether he ran or not...

    meanwhile bryant got suspended for lying about dinner with deion. where's his head at? no one really knows.

    you bring up AJ, CJ and fitz the reason why they went top 5 was because they were great but also so steady as people

    dez bryant... yes he's great on the field... but at this point i'd be shocked if he went top 5 or top 10 like everyone said he would... he's done nothing to help his stock... he's basically only hurt it for about a year.

    To be fair, if its a phone interview, its not quite as bad.

    Because you're pretty much the only one who buys that talking to Deion Sanders was some act of evil.

    the dude broke rules, lied about it and was lost for most of the year
    The dude talked to a former pro about his future career.

    that's not something the NFL will easily forget about
    No, that's not something you'll easily forget about.

    people bring up crabtree... that dude broke his foot and played on it in the bowl game. at least ya know he's committed... whether he ran or not...
    But he didn't run...and you know how almighty and all encompassing a 40 time is.

    meanwhile bryant got suspended for lying about dinner with deion. where's his head at? no one really knows.
    Apparently his head is trying to break into the pros...he's put on 15 pounds over the past 2 years...he dined and sought advice from a former NFL legend...got suspended for it but such is the NCAA....

    you bring up AJ, CJ and fitz the reason why they went top 5 was because they were great but also so steady as people
    True.

    dez bryant... yes he's great on the field... but at this point i'd be shocked if he went top 5 or top 10 like everyone said he would... he's done nothing to help his stock... he's basically only hurt it for about a year.
    Probably true, but Crabtree spent all of last offseason doing everything he could to kill his stock and still went top 10. Talent is talent is talent...and he's still a better football player than most of these guys in this draft...

    Also, nothing on the 4.32 Schefter said he ran last week? Nothing about his 11'1 broad jump? Or 38 inch vertical? I thought workouts were really a big deal?

    No biggie. Ray Romano forgot his golf clubs for a lesson with Hank Haney.

    the NFL has dumb rules just like the NCAA has dumb rules

    not being able to adhere to those rules is a problem

    does not sound like the smartest apple.



    Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant lashed out at his skeptics to the Associated Press following his Tuesday Pro Day, insisting the criticism "has gone too far" and saying "he ain't never got in trouble with nobody."

    "I don't say anything wrong to nobody. I'm friendly. This...is too far," he said. "Even if I did forget my cleats, what do that have to do with me playing football? ... Y'all don't want me to go to the NFL? It is going to happen. God blessed me to have this ability to play this game. ... I feel like I'm going through the same situation Randy Moss did." He also defended Pacman Jones. "Why down talk the man?" Bryant said of Pacman. "The man did everything right."

    right

    Dez would be great if he stops acting like a mini-Terell Owens.
