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.

Don't worry Smootsmack I'll keep my fingers crossed on this one.
Seriously this is getting pretty ridiculous.

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

"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."

Just because of that quote right there I dont want to draft him. Look at his english.Disgraceful. Damn Canadian

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

I sort of hate the resurrect a dying thread, but ....

A good point from Peter King's MMQ -

"Gil Brandt called in on Thursday and made a tremendous point on this Malcolm Kelly controversy, about Kelly claiming the university had him run on a slow surface at Oklahoma. Kelly ran 40-yard-dash times of 4.63 and 4.69, and if the surface was so slow, then why did Adrian Peterson run a 4.39 on the same surface last year?"

King has us take Merling in his mock draft ....

Re: Kelly Critical of OU After Disappointing 40 Time

Since when did public speaking and eloquency make its way into the job description for being an NFL wide receiver?

Outside of the Wonderlic and a few other very undependable personality tests, scouts have very little information available to assess how good of a PR person an athlete will be.
This little media gaffe should have no determination of how well he can play or what kind of career he is going to have. If ppl wanna portray this kid as a selfish, accident waiting to happen WR, then that is very presumptuous. Imagine if Denver had stayed away from John Elway b/c he publicly refused to play for the Colts (which was a much bigger "primadonna" move than Kelly being critical of OU).
