The Valley Ranch Review: Working out with Marion Barber and More Pre-Draft Visits

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver, Sidney Rice, blogged about his grueling workouts with MBIII and his brother, Dominique. Here's what he said about how the Barbers do it:

We're not due back for offseason training until April 6, so I've been in Miami working out hard with Marion Barber of the Cowboys and his brother Dominique who plays for the Texans.

This workout is the hardest I've ever done.

Rice on the specifics of the workout:

Our workout is different every day, we use sleds, climb ropes to the ceiling, pushups, running, jumping rope. Pushing the sleds kills me every time. We're slamming balls into each other, and there aren't too many breaks as you go through the circuit.

Everybody throws up almost every time we go through it.

More from Rice:

After working out with the team I think I'll come back down to Miami and get back to Legacy for some more workouts before we have to meet up in Minnesota again. Me and Marion have been talking about getting back down here for a couple weeks.

Hat tip to the Daily Norseman.

Here are two more prospects scheduled to visit with the Cowboys:

Georgia wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi will be at Valley Ranch next Thursday.

San Jose State defensive end Jarron Gilbert will stop in before the pre-draft visiting deadline of April 17th. There's a pool at The Ranch, right?
