Default Josh McDaniels: Dez Bryant is on our board

He said in the press conference that he knows teams have taken them off... we haven't. Dez Bryant is on the Broncos draft baord.

I hope Dez stays away from McDonalds wrappers and smacking his Bioatches around during his NFL career.

****. That means we will not be drafting him then....Balls. I really really want him....Why do I say this? well, why else would Josh exclaim that we are looking at him hard. Because he wants to trade with someone or wants someone to fall.....I mean, if the pats think we will take him they might trade up with us for him, or another team might trade up ahead of us letting a team with similiar needs as us tade back, meaning the player we want that might have gone to buffalo will now fall to us...

Or I could be looking to hard into this....Dontknow. But I do know we will regret not taking dez if we stay at 11.

There goes any message he was trying to send the team about character. Good to know we got rid of a proven top talent in Marshall for nothing.

Do any of you actually believe a single thing this dude says about his draft board before the draft?

I could be wrong but didn't we visit with nearly every first day pick we signed last year? Not sure.

No but it is still fun to hate. But it really will make him a big joke if he drafts Dez. He got rid of Cutler for acting immature and handling one thing wrong in his career. He got rid of Marshall for being a distraction and getting in trouble. Sheffler is probably on his way out for the way he has acted.

All of this "we have to have high character guys" message looks pretty dumb when you go after the most high profile guy in the draft with character concerns.

Its been known for years that teams discuss players they arent interested in, to throw up a smoke screen. So now the script is flipped, we discuss players we are interested, because nobody will think we are interested in them. Bwhahahahaha, evil genius McD!!!!!!!!

That's what I am thinking. McD has been pretty forthcoming to the point that people believe he is bluffing.

Press just ended - I just wanted to say that he discussed the whole character thing with Dez...

He said he didn't want to talk about Marshall, but with Dez he's never been arrested or DUI... and that most people are confusing character with the mistakes he's made. He's been in other situations where other people have made mistakes (Deion), etc.

Now obviously McDaniels is throwing up a smoke screen, he's talked highly about all the players. Dan Williams he was a little iffy on... he said he's so athletic that maybe he's even a DE.

Back to Dez... everything could be a big lie but after I actually started doing research on this guy, the whole character issue has been blown out of proportion by reports, etc.

You seem opposed to Dez. Let me ask you, do you even know why he was suspended last year? Do you know the controversy behind that? I was in the same boat, just assuming he was someone like Marshall with a bunch of baggage.

Go do some research and you'll see it's not about character... he did everything he was asked to do in college.

Whoever gets him is going to get a great player and a deep threat... period.

As far as the Broncos and McDaniels... what he said about the players are obviously true... but everything about the Broncos being interested in them is most likely a lie.

I love how Dez Bryant has suddenly become a rapist, girl beating, robber. He's never been in trouble with the law.

He didn't mind being in Denver, he just wanted to get paid, and was angling his actions towards that end.

At the end of the day, Denver loses one of the best WR's coming into his prime in the NFL and Brandon Marshall becomes the highest paid WR's in the league.

http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/04/1...the-rough.html



The NFL draft is as much about uncovering truth as uncovering talent and if you need proof of that I present Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland, who last week only half-kiddingly admitted his team sometimes brings prospects to town to throw other teams off Miami's scent.

Truth is important to NFL teams this time of year. Last year, there were rumors cornerback Vontae Davis was something of a problem child at Illinois and that was one reason he was available to Miami late in the first round.

The Dolphins recognized the truth about Davis and reaped a reward. And so it's important this year that Miami find out the truth about Dez Bryant.

Bryant is the next best hope the Dolphins have for solving their troubling lack of playmakers. He is this coming draft's best wide receiver. He was a play-making machine at Oklahoma State and most draft experts agree is can be that again in the NFL.

But Bryant also is something of a walking rumor -- one the Dolphins must unravel.

You've probably heard the rumors: Bryant is a bad guy from a bad background. The NCAA suspended him last year. He is trouble.

Well, here is the truth: Dez Bryant has never been arrested. He has never been busted for drugs. He has never been pulled over for DUI. He has never had a domestic battery issue or been violent in a bar or a locker room.

A FEW INCIDENTS

No, Bryant is not a saint. He did, in fact, lie to the NCAA last year when he panicked during an investigation into his relationship with Deion Sanders -- a relationship that was not against NCAA rules, by the way.

And Bryant is immature and did have troubles at Oklahoma State with being on time to team functions, including perhaps, arriving only 90 minutes before one game.

But a thug?

Not Dez Bryant.

He is 21 years old and although the tardiness suggests he is immature, he is also adult enough to know he has to address that issue.

That's the reason Bryant has hired a ``life skills coach,'' according to people who are close to him.

This coach is making sure Bryant follows a regimen and gets where he needs to be on time. This coach is making sure Bryant manages his life in an orderly manner. This life coach is basically helping Bryant develop habits that will allow him to be a responsible person and productive player.

And this coach is expected to be with Bryant until those habits are fully formed.

Well, you might wonder, why does Bryant need someone to help him learn the right habits at this stage in his life?

Because his life early on was a living hell.


DYSFUNCTIONAL START

Bryant was conceived when his mother was 12 years old. He is the product of what can legally be described as statutory rape, as his father was approximately 40 years old at the time.

Bryant's mom had three children by the time she was 18 and was in jail serving time for drug dealing by the time she was 23.

Bryant's father? He has been out of the picture since that fateful winter night when he kicked his pre-teen son out on the street because the kid took too much food out of the refrigerator.

Bryant lived wherever he could after that. He stayed with friends. He stayed with coaches. He even lived in cars for a short time.

Can you now understand why he doesn't have all the life skills down to a science?

Yet out of this depressing, distressing mess, Bryant is not a lost cause. He is, actually, a diamond in the rough, a grand possibility.

DOUBTS LINGER

Some NFL teams will surely look at Bryant and see a project they don't want to bother with. The Jacksonville Jaguars, for example, have reportedly taken him off their draft board.

But are those teams seeing the truth?

The truth is any man able to overcome the troubles Bryant has can certainly overcome the adversity of press coverage or the pressure of a fourth-quarter drive. Life punched Bryant in the mouth when he was a boy. He's not likely to get knocked out by the NFL's demands as a man.

The Dolphins will hopefully recognize the truth about Bryant. And they will hopefully be alert to the differences between his lack of skills and bounty of gifts.

The life skills Bryant lacks can be taught. But the football gifts he possess are rare, and either come naturally or never come at all.
