Here’s a look where former Oklahoma State stars land in various mock drafts around the web:

Mel Kiper, ESPN

WR Dez Bryant, No. 21 overall to Cincinnati

“The Bengals offer an ideal situation, where Bryant can be thrust into a system with great leadership at quarterback and players to learn from at receiver. Cincy needs to add weapons and depth in the passing game, and Bryant can’t be missed here.”  –Kiper

LT Russell Okung, No. 6 overall to Seattle

“The Seahawks will be tickled to find Okung here. Okung is the steadiest player at the position in the draft. Okung gains value because he should be able to take over the position immediately. An easy pick for the Hawks.” –Kiper

Todd McShay and Scouts, Inc., ESPN

LT Russell Okung, No. 4 overall to Washington

“The Redskins fill their biggest hole with the safest offensive tackle on the board.” –McShay

WR Dez Bryant, No. 21 overall to Cincinnati

“The Bengals have a track record of ignoring character concerns in favor of talent, and Bryant is a top-10 talent who would be an absolute steal at this point.” –McShay

CB Perrish Cox, No. 89 overall to Arizona

S Lucien Antoine, No. 247 overall to New England Patriots

Peter Schrager,

LT Russell Okung, No. 4 overall to Washington

“In the Oklahoma State star, a player I had rated higher than No. 2 overall pick Jason Smith last year, coach Mike Shanahan & Co. would get a franchise cornerstone who gave up just one sack in 336 pass attempts in 2009. Shanahan struck gold in Ryan Clady at No. 8 overall in Denver. He’ll do the same with Okung at No. 4.”

WR Dez Bryant, No. 11 overall to Denver

“I’m sick and tired of hearing about Dez Bryant’s “character red flags.” Character schmaracter. The only “crime” Bryant’s guilty of is being a knucklehead. Bryant has Randy Moss-like talent. He’ll be a tremendous NFL player and he’ll produce right away in Denver. And I promise, Denver fans, there will be no “issues” to worry about.”

CB Perrish Cox, No. 131 to Cincinnati

G Andrew Lewis, No. 197 to Houston

Chris Steuber,

LT Russell Okung, No. 5 to Kansas City

“Okung makes the most sense and solidifies their O-Line.”

WR Dez Bryant, No. 22 to New England

“The Patriots need a playmaker opposite Randy Moss, and Bryant fits that need and will eventually be Moss’ successor.”

Adam Caplan,

LT Russell Okung, No. 5 overall to Kansas City

“They have to protect their major investment in QB Matt Cassel.”

WR Dez Bryant, No. 26 overall to Arizona

“Bryant is too good of a value to pass up here.”

Peter King,

LT Russell Okung, No. 6 overall to Seattle

“‘Hawks rejoice. A month ago, Okung was top tackle on most NFL draft boards.”

WR Dez Bryant, No. 22 overall to New England

“”Coach Belichick? Dez Bryant’s babysitter on line two.” I don’t care. I love the pick.”

Don Banks,

LT Russell Okung, No. 5 to Kansas City

“Nobody seems to have a great handle on which way Scott Pioli and the Chiefs will go, and that’s exactly the way the Kansas City general manager likes it.”

WR Dez Bryant, No. 21 to Cincinnati

“Bryant’s ceiling is higher than Jermaine Gresham’s. And the Bengals know if they pass on Bryant, he’ll be a Patriot within 10 minutes.”
