    He has singed with Eugene Parker.....

    From GBN:

    Top WR prospect signs with tough agent … Oklahoma State junior WR Dez Bryant, who missed most of the 2009 season after being suspended by the NCAA for lying about his relationship with former NFL star Deion Sanders, has made an interesting choice of agents. Bryant reportedly has signed with Eugene Parker who was the agent for San Francisco WR Michael Crabtree last year. Many analysts had Crabtree rated as the top prospect overall at this time last year, but he was never able to work out for pro teams because of an injury and was ultimately taken with the 10th pick last April. Parker argued, though, that Crabtree still deserved to be paid as a top 5 pick which resulted in Crabtree holding out the first month of the season. Like Crabtree, Bryant is considered to be the top WR prospect in the 2010 draft with top 5-10 potential, but his off-field troubles, combined with the threat of some protracted negotiations once he is drafted, could scare off some teams with high picks this coming April. Stay tuned!


    Dez has just made himslef a 2nd round pick

    He was never on it, as far as I was concerned.

    I doubt he was on BB's list of considerations.

    He's the best WR in college football.

    Why would you scratch him off the list?

    Because the Patriots will not deal with Parker, (and they are not the only team that feels that way), to avoid the headache/holdout, they will just take the kid off the draft board. What good is drafting a player if you can not get him on the field? You knew once Dieon got onvolved that Parker was not far behind. Dieon is a schill for Parker (and I like Dieon as an analyst, I think he is very funny too), but they have already costs this kid money by making him ineligible for most of the year, and know they are going to cost him more money by driving his draft stock even lower.

    Oh and BTW, he is also Seymour's agent, and you see how well that BB thought that was going to work out.........

    That really sucks....With his talent and athleticism I would take him with the #22 pick....I know I will get crucified for saying this as we have other needs....His talent at a position where moss will be gone in a year or two would help tremendously with the transition of losing moss.....Plus I believe he can come right in and play and talking about a 3rd WR....WOW that would be sick

    Taking a WR in the first round is very risky and his college team did not run option routes, so it is very difficult to see BB taking him in the first round because of all the projecting needed.

    Doubt it. Some team in the first round will be desperate/stupid enough to pick him up.
