STILLWATER, Okla. -- Justin Blackmon's fast feet may have helped solidify his position as a top NFL draft prospect. It was his usually sure hands that let him down at Oklahoma State's pro day.
Blackmon ran the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds in front of dozens of NFL scouts and three head coaches. But during a workout with fellow pro prospect Brandon Weeden, the two-time All-American receiver had two passes go off his hands.
Blackmon did catch two 50-yard passes from Weeden, who completed 42 of 52 passes with several of the incompletions glancing off his receivers' hands. On Thursday, Weeden had dinner with Denver Broncos executive John Elway and head coach John Fox.
