Oklahoma State stand-out Dez Bryant is an awesome football player. But besides that, he is human.

So why would scouts turn their heads?

Many believe that because he lied to the NCAA, it might have caused his draft stock to go down.

I disagree, although I am not a scout.

He made a mistake. A very small mistake. And he paid the price.

All of that is in the past.

Now, it is time to look at Dez Bryant as the special wide receiver he is.

If there is a jump ball, Dez will go get it. This guy can jump.

He is quick too. His routes are sharp and precise. The guy even stayed in great shape while sitting out.

Many think the Seahawks will be the team to take Dez with the number 14 pick. As far as I am concerned, I think the Dolphins might take him at number 12.

Either way, this kid is a big time player. Any team that passes him up on account of his past is sorely mistaken.
