Kelly comes away with similar results after running again

OKLAHOMA CITY -- 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, Chad Speck, 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.

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's Gil Brandt reports Kelly ran the 40 in 4.63 and 4.65 in front of three NFL teams -- Cleveland, Green Bay and the New York Giants.

Kelly (6-3 7/8, 225) ran a 4.15 short shuttle, 6.83 cone drill, had 14 reps in the bench press and once again looked good catching the ball, reports Brandt. Former Nebraska quarterback Eric Crouch threw him 22 "catchable" passes, and Kelly caught all but one.

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.
