Scout.com is reporting that our favorite PSU whipping boy quarterback, Mr. Anthony Morelli, did himself no favors in his Pro Day showoff drills, running 40s in a linemanlike 4.9-5.1 and appearing inconsistent and “not crisp at all” in the main quarterback workout. Tell us something we didn’t already know.
Among other NFL personnel, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin personally attended the workouts. Perhaps he wanted to see the place where his predecessor will be coaching next. (Just kidding, but RUTS has reported that Bill Cowher met with Spanier and Paterno as well as Curley when he visited University Park last month.)
Dan Connor, who missed the linebacker workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine, having gone home from that event with the flu,Â looked good all around, running a 4.70 and a 4.71.
Even the forgotten man, Austin Scott, had a decent performance. However, his legal trouble and his hesitancy to hit holes of the football kind will make him iffy for the NFL.
Justin King participated in all the drills except for the 40, I suppose because he wanted to leave well enough alone after having run a 4.31 at the NFL Combine. He was said to have performed well.

One other thing. Terrelle Pryor will announce his choice this week. Just about everybody thinks it will be Ohio State, so don’t be surprised if it is. Now that he’s won the basketball championship for Jeannette, he can concentrate on ending this high drama.
