    Exclusive Interview - Draft Prospect Red Bryant

    When you start looking into the top DT/NT prospects for the 2008 NFL Draft you will find out that Red Bryant from Texas A & M was one of the best at stuffing the run in 2007.

    But the former Aggie team captain is also ready to go to work on becoming a pass rushing force at the next level as well.

    Here's the interview I did with Red..

    Red Bryant Interview

    He was already on the list of players I thought the Cowboys should be looking into when the draft rolled around. Now after hearing him speak about his love for the game, his work ethic and the love he had for the Cowboys while growing up in Texas he is now on my 'must have' list for the draft.

    Here's a quick look at Red doing what he does best..

    If you can honestly listen to this interview and watch that video and tell me you're not a fan of everything that Red Bryant is as a young man entering the NFL then you're nuts.

    Like I said in the interview, Joseph 'Red' Bryant is every football coaches dream!

    Late second to third is what ive seen.

    I wouldnt hate him at 61. Hed push Spears out of the starting lineup by the end of the year with Rat moving over.

    I like him but he is not who I want. Okam has the most talent out of this class. It is work ethic that is the only issue. Okam has the most potential to be good at the next level.

    True but at almost 350 and that work ethic he is just as likely to eat himself to 400 lbs and be a conditioning nightmare as he is to succeed. Bryant has the potential to be good to great too but Okam would be a Jamal Williams type if he doesnt eat his way out of the league.

    Bryant is favorably compared to Casey Hampton, arguably the best NT in the league

    This is true. Okam does not get those comparisons cause of his work ethic. Okam looks alot like some of those other UT DT's. Hampton being one of them.

    I like Bryant alot....picking him in the second round would be a coup for the Boys in my opinion.

    I've seen that, but he doesn't remind me of Hampton at all. Hampton is a stumpy fireplug... Bryant is a taller, more linear guy (even at 318 lbs).

    If Bryant lived in the weight room and ate about five steaks a day, he might could get up to Jamal Williams' size.

    I like Bryant a lot too. 3rd would be fine and 4th would be a steal. A&M D-line guys tend to come in and do well. Maybe never perennial pro bowlers but nice solid players. They also for whatever reason have always done well in 3-4 Defenses. Ray Childress, Sam Adams, Brandon Mitchell, Ron Edwards, Pat Williams and Ty Warren all have played in 3-4s at some point and done well. I would love Bryant on the Cowboys.

    Okam is like most Texas D-lineman abundance of talent but never quite live up to it. All the back to Kenneth Sims up to Shaun Rogers. I know many have done well or at least been pretty good players...Steve McMichael. Shane Dronett, Tony Brackens, but even these guys seem like they should have been just monsters and they weren't in the NFL. Good players, but not great. A&M seems to turn of D-linemen more consistently that Texas. I do not hate TExas or anything but history seems to suggest it.

    Give me Bryant. I'll pass on Okam.

    I'd rather have Okam in the 4th or 5th than Bryant in the 2nd, but I also wouldn't mind trading up in rd 3 for Bryant

    Okam is not well-suited to play NT, he's more of a 4-3 DE, IMO...
