Dez Bryant Makes Impression On Trifecta

Late last week Dez Bryant met with the Trifecta, and the rest of the Dolphins staff, and went over multiple facets of the game, that the Dolphins deem crucial to interpreting a prospects value to their team. This also gave the Dolphins a chance to get to know Bryant as a person firsthand, and not have to rely on all of the media coverage that has been surrounding Bryant throughout the draft process.

Per Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel:

I’m told Bryant, made a favorable impression on the Trifecta from the character standpoint. However, I’m also told it’ll comes down to his intellect, and how he came across when the film got broken down. Offensive coordinator Dan Henning prefers receivers who are intelligent enough to quickly pick up route adjustments, which is something college receivers don’t do enough of. That’s why Brian Hartline got on the field so quickly (leapfrogging Patrick Turner) last season, and made an immediate impact. I’m told Bryant’s football IQ isn’t fully developed yet.

Finally we have some news on which prospects the Dolphins are really considering, and which ones are just smokescreens.

I would not have a problem with the Dolphins selecting Bryant with the #12 pick, heck, they could even trade down a couple positions, and still manage to take Bryant, because his so called “attitude problems” seem to scare more than a couple teams away from him in the draft.

Kelly pointed out, and makes a good point, that Parcells holds the ability to select some of the best nose tackles in the later rounds of the draft. That is where he found both Jason Ferguson, and Jay Ratliff. I’m sure Parcells, and the rest of the Trifecta would not mind having a chance to snap up the best player on the board early on in the draft, and relying on their skill in picking out diamonds in the rough, like they have in the past.

This point almost dismisses the notion that the Dolphins would use their first pick on a nose tackle, and would look elsewhere, such as wide receiver, to use their pick, thus making the point that Bryant could be the Dolphins guy in the first round.
