WR Malcolm Kelly (6-3 7/8, 227): Ran the 40 in 4.75 and 4.68, had a 32-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 9-inch long jump, 4.24 short shuttle, 7.00 cone drill, and ran position drills. Kelly looked very good

I think this bodes well for the Texans, meaning he pushes another prospect down to us, because he could go as high as #11 to Buffalo. :chickendance:

What's up with these slow times from these OK players

Just the opposite. That slow time may have pushed him down. Hope Otah shows well today.

4.7 is slower than I expected.

This is interesting because all of the top WRs have some questions marks.

DeSean Jackson only weighs 165-170 lbs. Limas Sweed has had a wrist injury, that they say won't be a reoccurring problem. Now Malcolm Kelly runs slower than expected.

this is a perfect example why 40 times don't accurately reflect real game time speed, watch tape for those who prefer to rely on the ticker tape just read this article- http://newsok.com/article/3227634/1207765302

"I had everything set up for where I wanted to do it at," Kelly said. "I get up here this morning and it's a whole different deal. This is my life. It's got to do with me and my family. This is what I do, play football, and I'm supposed to run as fast as I can. I was slipping all over the place during my drill work. I can't say I'm pleased with anything today."

Kelly said he had been preparing for the last month to test on Astroturf and was running the 40 in under 4.5 seconds on that surface.

"People want to say surface is surface, but it's a lot more to it than that," Kelly said. "You have to think about how much ground time you have running on this mushy surface here and how much ground time you have on Astroturf.

"Just a little bit of time could mean a whole lot of draft money."

Kelly, who measured in at 6-foot-4 and 227 pounds, reached 32 inches in the vertical jump and 9 feet, 9 inches in the long jump. He posted times of 4.24 in the short shuttle and 7.00 in the three-cone drill.

Kelly looked sharp running routes and catching the ball during receiver drills.

To be honest, I am hoping Otah gets selected and pushes Williams down.

So much for Pittsburgh trading up for our pick to get him.

Instead of running their 40s on a track why dont they just run on the field?

That's where they're going to being playing ball anyway.

OU's guys ran on a FieldTurf field, not a track.
