Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant To Visit Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers desperately need receivers to help quarterback Josh Freeman and seem interested in one high profile collegian.

Former Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant has visits scheduled with Dallas, Cincinnati and Tampa Bay, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram Dez Bryant To Visit Bucs

Bryant was originally projected to be selected in the top 10, but many teams have questioned his character and his stock has dropped. ESPN analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay previously projected Bryant to be selected 11th overall by Denver, but now there is a belief he could be selected late in the first round. If the Bucs were interested in him, they could trade one - or both - of their second round picks to obtain Bryant late in the first round.

During his pro day workout on Tuesday, Bryant ran 40-yard dash times of 4.53, 4.68 (against the wind) and 4.58, according to the report.

Speed,speed.
So what if he can’t catch the ball?

His stats say he can catch.
That what goes on the scoreboard.

It ain’t all about speed.
