Fine fits: Bryant in Seattle? Cox in Green Bay?
The NFL Draft is just over 24 hours away. It’s the perfect time to look at what teams would be perfect fit for Russell Okung, Dez Bryant and other former Oklahoma State standouts.
Left Tackle Russell Okung: The Washington Redskins would be the perfect fit for Okung. Protecting the blindside of quarterback Donovan McNabb would be a great situation for Okung. And the addition of McNabb and new head coach Mike Shanahan means the Redskins organization could soon return to the winning ways of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Okung has been getting knocked lately because “he’s not athlete Trent Williams is” but his production is unmatched. And he repeatedly stepped up and responded to the challenge when he went against college football’s best during his career.
Receiver Dez Bryant: Bryant has been the talk of the draft, opinions vary on Bryant. The Seattle Seahawks seem to be the perfect fit for Dez. They have Pete Carroll, a player-friendly coach, and T.J. Housmandzadeh, a veteran receiver who can mentor Dez. I think Dez Bryant would flourish in Seattle.
Bryant is a top 10 talent but his reputation has taken a serious hit during the draft process. For Bryant, maybe more than any other player in the draft, the team that drafts him is critical. If he lands with a solid organization with an excellent support system, Bryant has the talent to be a perennial pro bowl player.
Cornerback Perrish Cox: The ideal fit for Perrish Cox would be the Green Bay Packers. They have talented, veteran cornerbacks in Al Harris and Charles Woodson. Cox could learn behind Woodson and Harris and the Packers would get a talented young cornerback.
Cox has first round talent but his suspension at the Cotton Bowl hurt his draft stock and raised questions about his decision-making. Much like Bryant, the situation he is drafted into will go a long way towards deciding his NFL future.
Quarterback Zac Robinson: The New England Patriots seem like a great fit for Robinson. He reportedly visited the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles in recent weeks but New England appears to be a great fit. The Patriots value leadership and versatility. Robinson has plenty of both.
