More Evidence Bucs Won’t Draft Bryant At No. 3

March 10th, 2010

Recently, Joe brought news that former NFL front office executive, columnist, analyst and Sirius NFL Radio sage Pat Kirwan explained he wouldn’t touch wide receiver Dez Bryant in the first round.

This nearly smacked of heresy since Bryant is regarded as the best receiver in the draft.

Kirwan noted that his read on Bryant resulted in all sorts of red flags.

Seems Kirwan sniffed this out before many.

Earlier this morning while appearing with co-hosts Bob Papa and Randy Cross on “The Opening Drive,” heard exclusively on Sirius NFL Radio, a confidant of Joe’s, player agent Ralph Cindrich who works for Tampa-based DeBartolo Sports, hinted Bryant was thrown out of his workout camp in Tampa earlier this year for being a general asswipe.

Then, Joe was tipped off to a story by Matt Bowen of the, in which he details how Bryant’s stock is freefalling.

I spoke with several NFL coaches today — as well as a high-level NFL executive — who think that drafting Bryant is a major risk. One coach even brought up the idea that Bryant is not the type of receiver who would catch the ball in between the numbers, which is the same thing as talking about a receiver who will not go across the middle of the field.

Throw in the fact that Bryant refused to work out for scouts — at his pro day no less! — and that he was ousted off his collegiate team at Oklahoma State last year because he lied to NCAA officials about dabbling with an agent, let’s just say Joe wouldn’t even think about drafting this Terrell Owens-wannabe unless he was still sitting there in the third round.

    Id get him in the second round, dropping that far might humble him

    Not usually one to say I told you so, but I’ve been saying this for months. Dez is an asswipe. Any team that takes him in the top ten deserves what they get.

  3. Eric Says:

    You would think the idiot would be on his best behavior, with the draft upcoming and all. Looks like he has cost himself a few million. Pity.

    JDOUBLE, you have been right all along, stay away, farrrrrr away.

    To be honest with you I would take this headcase over anybody we got right now! BOYCOTT THE BUCS! GLAZERS MUST GO!

    Outside the box:
    Antonio byrant signs with Bengals. 28 mill 4 years(similar to Clayton’s?). At least he didnt end up in the NFC south.

  6. JTHV Says:

    We resign Clayton at the money AB got?

    I have lost all confidence in this organization.

    Go Rays!

  7. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    If somehow all this baggage dropped him into the 2nd round , however, it could be just the break we need.

  8. Tj Tillman Says:

    beleive me Benn from Illinos is the real deal saw him in person against Ohio state he will be there in the 2nd round

  9. Gary Says:

    Not working out for teams and his injuries are killing his stock. At #3, he would be a reach anyway. As long as we get Suh/McCoy at with our 1st rounder and Demaryius Thomas in the 2nd with another defensive player I’m happy.

  10. Big Daddy Says:

    Man…should’ve resigned AB. He was hurt and was still put up the best numbers among WRs. I’m not sure what the Bucs are thinking but its painful to endure.

  11. FuNkYxMuNkeY Says:

    Take Benn and Gilyard and Shipley and we would be set. If not Shipley get Taylor Price or even Meirer looked solid from Kansas. Also Freddy Barnes from Bowling Green. All are talented and possible to get. I hope to god we get Benn. He is a freak and a workhorse and no character issues!!! What more could we want???

    Demaryius Thomas won’t be around in the 2nd round
