    Dez Bryant says he's "ready to get drafted."

    Less than an hour before Thursday's NFL draft, Bryant says he's anxious and excited.

    Draft projections vary widely for Bryant. He was suspended for lying to the NCAA about a meeting with Deion Sanders, cutting short his final season at Oklahoma State.

    Bryant is waiting out the first round of the draft at the palatial Dallas-area home of one of his advisers. To burn off some energy, Bryant played a game of one-on-one basketball with a younger brother of Michael Crabtree, the second receiver taken in last year's draft.
