 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -A 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.
