And his forty time doesn't really matter, it's not the first time a big wide receiver has run a slow forty but succeeded in the NFL.
Yeah I agree. It sounds like frustration, but still a terrible answer. For the Skins interview he apologize and say the comment was out of frustration and he will try to improve his time.

Sounds like a good deal for a 2nd rounder if it happens.

Kelly critical of Oklahoma after disappointing performance


NORMAN, Okla. -- Wide receiver Malcolm Kelly lashed out at Oklahoma on Wednesday after a disappointing performance in a 40-yard dash in front of NFL scouts.


Kelly, who left Oklahoma after his junior season, blamed his slow time of 4.68 seconds on an unexpected change in surfaces at his pro day.


"This is my life. You know what I'm saying? This ain't no school. This ain't no classroom. This ain't got nothing to do with that," Kelly said. "This has to do with me; my family. This is what I do. I play football. And I'm supposed to come out here and run as fast as I can." ...



1) No, surfaces are not the same, and of course you will run a little faster on a track than on grass or turf, but obviously scouts aren't stupid and they account for such differences by adding tenths to times run on a track etc. Maybe he could impress some internet guys, but good scouts know the score.

2) Even before the 40 time he had likely slipped out of the first round because of questions about his knees, so I'm not sure he should really be blaming OU, it just makes him come off as a whiner and doesn't help him much. The "this ain't no classroom" comment also doesn't do much for me and the tone of the thing sounds like something Brandon Lloyd would say. "Lost the ball in the lights? Are you crazy? The quarterback sucks, it ain't my fault!"

3) Looks like he has a visit scheduled to Washington. If he were to be on the board at 51 (but not 21) it would be a nice pick. If I remember, Anquan Boldin ran a 4.7 or 4.8 and he has turned out ok. I've heard Kelly is a high character guy, but this outburst doesn't help him much in my book. I can understand the frustration, though, and if he checks out otherwise the disappointing 40 time might be a good thing for the Skins.
I understand your reservations about this guy, but I have to disagree. I would liken it to a poor performance report like in any other profession. If that report reflects poorly on you (no matter how minute) b/c of some managerial blunders, you can bet you are going to take exception to it. Now magnify this issue by a factor of how much more money he has at risk (we're talking in the millions). I'd be pissed too, enough for at least a soundbyte and some press coverage to explain the situation

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

If we trade back into the second round then it would seem we have the best chance of picking him up. KFFL reports the Titans, Steelers, Cowboys, Redskins, and Eagles are all showing a strong interest in Kelly. And if we got an early second we would be in the best position to select him.

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

The guys on Sirius NFL were killing Kelly this morning for his outburst. Supposedly he didn't just give the quotes, but also went off at OU's strength and conditioning coach...

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

So is it safe to say now that he's not going to the Bengals at 9?

About as safe as standing under a net with Shaq shooting free throws.

Thumbs up Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

I've thought this guy was a good prospect for us, but this crap just reeks of Brandon Lloyd. I don't think I'm feelin' him anymore.

Could you elaborate? Because from all I've seen of him play, he seems pretty solid

few people realize this, but Mcintosh was instrumental in the Redskins defensive turnaround. His speed and athleticism gave Gregg Williams a lot more flexability with his defense (see: success of Sean Taylor and Laron Landry at free safety)

However, I have always been critical of giving two second rounders up to draft rocky.

Yes, he'd be a steal, but he's projected 4th-5th. So we have no need to take him early. Check out the comment above my avatar, it's been like that since shortly after the season ended.
Monk is a great talent, and no one really knows it yet.

Did you watch the Texas A&M or Colorado game when he was throwing tantrums for not getting the ball enough? How about two straight Fiesta bowls in a row where he got injured? This also isn't the first time OU has been bashed over something like this. In a December interview with the Tulsa World, Kelly's father, Moses Kelly, said his son was considering the direction of the OU offense and his use in it as a factor in making his decision. "Is his school going to design more plays to get balls for him, or is he going to run down field the majority of time blocking, which is mostly what he did this season?" Moses Kelly said. "He started off catching more, but as the season went along, he didn't get more than two or three touches a game. If the defense adjusts like that again and they can't get the ball more to him, he has to think about, 'If I stay, what would be the benefit?' " This is from Tulsa World. Its my opinion but I say no thanks to him. If we draft a WR I hope we overlook him and go after someone in later rounds.
