The Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans combined to put Baylor cornerback Antareis Bryan through a private workout today.

Bryan, who was limited during his senior season with a hamstring, injury ran the 40-yard dash in 4.34 seconds, according to his agent Albert Elias. Bryan also had a 39-inch vertical jump and put up 10 reps on the bench press at 225 pounds.

At 6-1, 200 pounds, he’s an intriguing prospect. Bryan played very well as a freshman and sophomore. A broken ankle hampered his junior season and then he missed significant time last year with a hamstring injury. He’s gaining some traction and more workouts are scheduled.

Bryan, who already graduated from Baylor, did not attend the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, so teams interested in him may want to bring him in for an official visit in order to get a full medical evaluation.

The Detroit Lions should take a look if they don't already know we need a CB.

I doubt that speed faster than 4.45 is of much real use to a CB. On most plays it is how quick they are immediately around their body that makes the difference between breaking up a pass or allowing a completion: quickly adjusting their direction and moving a few feet at most. Typically individuals who are 6'1" and ~ 200 pounds are not especially quick around their bodies. Maybe he's an exception, but the fascination NFL GMs have with 6'1", and taller, CBs is very strange.

They generally come with natural disadvantages that will end up losing football games. That is why the NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl are dominated by DBs who are under 6'.

That is why some games look so boring. Too regular.

To Johnny Z, you just provided totally wrong information about the size and speed. NFL is full of CBs with similar size and even bigger.
