All-America wide receiver Dez Bryant has been ruled ineligible by Oklahoma State for an improper interaction with a former NFL player.

Bryant said Wednesday in a statement released by the university that he "made a mistake by not being entirely truthful when meeting with the NCAA." He also apologized to his teammates, coaches, fans and the NCAA.

A top NFL prospect, Bryant caught 87 passes for 1,480 yards and 19 touchdowns last season while also scoring twice on punt returns. He has 17 catches for 323 yards and four touchdowns this season, but sat out Oklahoma State's last game against Grambling State.

How far will he drop because of this?

Wow! Deion strikes again?

I don't think he drops unless there are concerns about signability (ie Crabtree).

Not far. He was outstanding last year, has been great this year, he's still the same quality of player he was before. Obviously his combine performance and workouts take on increased importance, but the only thing I see causing him to slip significantly would be if he signed Eugene Parker as his agent.

Seems likely right? And with the whole sordid Deion/Eugene Parker/Crabtree triangle still not fully resolved (tampering charges, which Deion is party too, still stand) Bryant better find an agent other then Parker.

He is an absolute beast, I suspect he is the best WR in the draft so he is definitely a top 20 pick regardless.

I think the Saints should spend their first couple of picks on getting some more depth on the defensive line. The WR position is pretty rediculous for the Saints imo, the Saints will probably be better served using those picks on players in areas of need and not areas of want.

Agreed. The last thing we need is a WR. We've got Arrington on PS too remember. I would think one of those 3-4 DE/OLB monsters would be great to have for GW.

Here's the thing though - if the NCAA is taking action on Bryant, and the player is Deion, the league is going to have address this with Deion with possible sanctions of some sort. If what the league knows is actually worse than what we do, Deion could be disassociated with the league. That would mean he couldn't work for NFLN anymore, or, I don't think, any of the other networks that have contractual rights with the NFL including the networks and ESPN.

I doubt that would happen, but I don't think the league will just let it go if Deion was involved, particularly because of the Crabtree concerns. And if what is alleged is what's going on, Deion needs to be sanctioned. You can't do that - it's bad for a host of reasons.
