Pulling For Dez Bryant!

In all honesty, I don't know a thing about Dez Bryant, the former Oklahoma State wide receiver who was drafted last night by the Dallas Cowboys. I am however, pulling for him to have success in the NFL. Bryant, is a young man who has parlayed his extensive athletic skills into a potential million dollar pay day with the Cowboys. Bryant comes to the NFL with supposed "life issues," and was suspended for most of his Junior year at Oklahoma State for lying about his relationship with Deion Sanders.

Bryant was born to a teenage mother, and obviously didn't develop some of the life skills required for long term success. I'm hoping that the Cowboys will assign him a mentor, so that the millions that he's about to receive won't lead him down the wrong path.
