Maybe you can scratch Dez Bryant off the Raiders’ wish list after all.
Bryant ran the forty in 4.52, 4.68, and 4.52, according to NFL.com. Bryant was asked to run a third time because of the discrepancy in the times. He jumped 38 inches on his vertical leap and jumped over eleven feet on his broad jump, which is a huge number.
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.
Mike Mayock said he was surprised by the slow forty times. He appears to play faster on tape.
The problem for Bryant is that Adam Schefter tweeted that Bryant ran a 4.32 last week, creating high expectations. Larry Fitzgerald ran a similar time a few years ago, but didn’t have the same off-field concerns.
Mayock said “more questions than answers” came out of the workout.
