Sources: Bryant moves pro day
By Adam Schefter
Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant has pushed back his pro day, according to sources close to the situation.
Instead of working out March 25, as was scheduled, Bryant now plans to work out March 30 in his hometown of Lufkin, Texas, according to sources.
Bryant had tried to schedule his workout for the afternoon of March 30, a day after Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford's workout in Norman, Okla., to make life easier for NFL teams, but Oklahoma State balked at the idea. The school already held one pro day and preferred not to host another.
Thus, Bryant opted to hold his pro day on March 30 in Lufkin, one day before NFL teams attend Texas' pro day in Austin.
Bryant's pro day is considered critical to where he will go in the draft. NFL teams had hoped to see him run at the scouting combine, but a hamstring injury prevented him from doing so. His hamstring is said to be improved enough for Bryant to be able to perform at his newly scheduled pro day.
