Dez Bryant met Jerry Jones; Parcells next
By Calvin Watkins
Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant said he enjoyed his Wednesday evening visit with Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones.
Bryant, who is projected as the first wide receiver to get drafted, might not be around when the Cowboys select at 27. However Jones has over 50 draft day trades druing his time as owner.
Could the Cowboys be moving up?
"To be honest, I really don't know," Bryant said Thursday night from South Florida, where he was visiting the Miami Dolphins. "I think they're interested in me a lot. I think Miami is too."
During his visit to Valley Ranch, Bryant said he met with quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Roy E. Williams.
"They were nice guys, fun people to be around," Bryant said of Romo and Williams. "We just had a introduction during my visit and they seemed down to earth."
Thursday night, Bryant had dinner with Dolphins coach Tony Sparano and general manager Jeff Ireland. But on Friday, Bill Parcells, the executive vice president of football operations, meets with Bryant.
Bryant has visits scheduled with Tampa Bay, Denver, Seattle and Cleveland.
So far Bryant liked talking to Jones.
"He seemed like he's about business," Bryant said. "He comes across as a person who wants to win and I'm the exact same way."
