Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State. After missing most of the season and then not working out at the Combine, he must show elite quickness, explosiveness and speed Wednesday to be the first receiver drafted.

Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama. He must weigh-in Wednesday at 340s and prove he has the endurance and athleticism to play more than 15-20 snaps per game.

Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama. He chose not to workout at the Combine, putting it all on the line Wednesday.

Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma. Unless he delivers a big-time workout Tuesday, Ndamukong Suh could well end the defensive tackle debate Thursday.

Tony Pike, QB, Cincinnati. He must throw with more consistent zip and accuracy Wednesday and prove he has a mental capacity to grasp NFL passing concepts.

Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma. He could overtake Russell Okung as the No. 1 tackle if he shows up in great shape Tuesday and shines.
