Dez Bryant's Pro Day Workout: Less Than Stellar

Earlier this off-season Dez Bryant, considered by all parties involved the best receiver in the draft, was a hot name for the Chiefs picking at No. 5. Of course, this came before the resigning of Chris Chambers, but many would still love to see Bryant suit up. However, continued personality issues, questions about his work ethic and the like continue to chip away at his draft status. Now, apparently even his physical workouts weren't up to par.

At a recent Pro Day, Bryant ran the 40 with three subpar times as a result: 4.52, 4.68, and 4.52. As Pro Football Talk notes, "Bryant was asked to run a third time because of the discrepancy in the times." PFT goes on to write, "He wasn't able to finish the three-cone drill and short shuttle, which perhaps indicates a lack of work preparing for the pro day. His hands reportedly looked good."

Many famous faces were on hand to view the talented wideout first-hand. NFL.com's Gil Brandt writes, "The notable NFL coaches and executives in attendance today include Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, coach Mike Singletary and director of player personnel Trent Baalke of the 49ers, Packers coach Mike McCarthy and director of college scouting John Dorsey, Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler, Bucs wide receivers coach Eric Yarber and Raiders scout Cliff Branch."

However, they might not be pleased with what they observed. PFT has some quotes and concerns from Mike Mayock. "Mike Mayock said he was surprised by the slow forty times. He appears to play faster on tape," says NBC Sports Gregg Rosenthal. "Mayock said 'more questions than answers' came out of the workout."
