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.
Thanks for this. I guess I didn't know the whole story. I shoulda known better...but I don't work on college football anyway

I always felt like when given the opportunity he did well, but it seems like there's more to the story than that. Does he seem like another M. Westbrook to you?

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.
Danny, Vinny, and Spurrier picked Taylor Jacobs with Anquan Boldin still on the board. I would take a slower, tougher guy who just makes plays over a soft pretty boy WR every time. I still like Kelly, and now perhaps we can get him in the 2nd round.

Hes a stud and I think he has what it takes to be in nfl, but not a #1 or even a #2. He needs to do some serious damage control or hes gonna scare his possible suitors off. Now that hes gone im ready to see what this guy can do.

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

Malcom Kelly shouldn't be blaming the school, and it's medical staff for his bad time, he should have said it was all his fault, and it would have made him look good, and maybe some teams would give him a look from pick 15-20 area, if I were a GM, I wouldn't go after him until the second round.

I think the latest is it will be in front of pro scouts but on astroturf, which is good because he'll get to run fas but bad because no stadium has astroturf anymore.

And the only people who will be fooled by a faster time are guys who run internet draft sites and live in their parent's basement. NFL scouts know what is going on.

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

I seriously dont understand wtf is the point with all of this. Why doesn't he admit he made a mistake and he needs to work on it?

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

Was anyone else taken aback by his grammar and overall attitude. Anyone who does not have the common sense to project themselves as a competent and mature individual this close to the draft is not someone I would want on my team (if I was a GM or HC).

He's worried about how running on a slow surface if going to affect his life....how about dropping the double negatives and growing up a bit?

He and Vinny fell for each other, you see, and Kelly really wants to be here, so they devised this ingenious plan to scare off any other suitors so we could nab him in the 2nd round. Vinny promises to pay him like a round 1 draft pick still. The whole thing is really quite brilliant if you ask me.

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

I don't see why people are shying away from Kelly all of a sudden. If anything this outburst shows that Kelly will become an EXCELLENT NFL reciever. Tall-Check, Slow like Anquan Boldin-Check, Whines like a premadonna-check.

Don't worry Smootsmack I'll keep my fingers crossed on this one.

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

Kelly gets second chance to run


Story Highlights
  • Oklahoma WR unofficially improved 40 time by .22 seconds
  • Receiver originally blasted alma mater for poor running surface
  • 49ers, Cowboys, Redskins set to meet with Kelly soon
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)Last week after loudly complaining about the surface he was forced to run on in front of NFL scouts, former Oklahoma receiver Malcolm Kelly got his second chance Wednesday.

His agent said he bettered his time in the 40-yard dash by more than two-tenths of a second in the workout at the University of Oklahoma. But a news release from OU with numbers compiled from NFL scouts indicated the improvement was only slight.

His agent, Chad Speck, said Kelly ran the 40 as fast as 4.46 Wednesday after running a 4.68 on OU's pro day one week ago. But the numbers from the NFL scouts showed Kelly ran the 40 in 4.69 and 4.63, according to a release from OU spokesman Kenny Mossman.

Speck said the scouts may have added time to his results to reflect the faster surface he was on Wednesday.
"There's nothing that we can do about, if a team decides to adjust it," Speck said.

"He ran much faster today."

Kelly complained after the workout last week that he had expected to run on the AstroTurf inside Oklahoma's indoor track facility, but was forced instead to run on a softer surface, resulting in the slower time. He has since apologized and thanked OU for setting up the latest workout.

Kelly said the workout went well.

"Like I said, last week I made a lot of immature decisions going off like that," who complained that the slow time would cost him money, a red flag for NFL teams.

He said he spoke with OU coach Bob Stoops for more than an hour and there are no hard feelings.

"He told me I never game him any trouble. He just said there's no bad blood between us."

Speck dismissed speculation that Kelly's outburst about the first workout would cause his draft stock to fall. Kelly left after the workout for Washington, D.C., to meet with the Washington Redskins, followed by a meeting Thursday with the Dallas Cowboys, then with the San Francisco 49ers Friday.

Seriously this is getting pretty ridiculous.

But maybe it's for the best... I'd love to steal him in the 2nd round.
