Word has already been sent out on Cyrus Kouandjio’s behalf that his knee is fine.
Today, he gets to show it.
The Alabama left tackle will be among a group of players having a second-chance pro day in Tuscaloosa today.
He needs the image repair, after a bad combine and reports that he had an arthritic knee. Dr. James Andrews sent a letter to all 32 teams dismissing that claim, but the letter didn’t address that 5.53-second 40 he ran in Indianapolis which sent up red flags.
“I’ll go into track stuff and tell them how good of a track athlete I am,” Kouandjio said, via Andrew Gribble of AL.com. “My goal is to show a dramatic increase from the last time I was timed, and show a lot of increase.”
If he can run well, it would ease a lot of concerns about his condition. He’s still expected to be drafted fairly highly because of the need for pass-protectors, but could buoy his stock a bit if he shows well today.
