With all the hoopla surrounding the wide receiver position, I thought this was an interesting tidbit. I am not a fan of drafting receivers in the top 20 picks of the first round. I would place this position as the most volatile in terms of make or fail in the NFL.
Given the “attitude” of this particular receiver, I’m reminded of an earlier fan post about what Patrick Turner thought the NFL would be. I quote, “The NFL,” Turner told him, “it’s fun, but it’s all work”. Sounds like this third rounder hasn’t realized responsibility yet, and then we have this report come out on the ballyhooed Dez Bryant.
“I wouldn’t draft that kid unless I had someone to wake him up in the morning to get to meetings, someone to wake him up for practice and someone to wake him up for games,” one source said.
“We’re not just talking about being a little late for warmups, but like being late for the actual game,” a source said with a chuckle. “When you start to hear some of the stories of there, you go, ‘He did what?’ ”
