Alabama offensive tackle Andre Smith didn’t perform well at his Pro Day workout today in front of the entire league after creating a stir by leaving the NFL scouting combine early last month. One league source told us: "He bombed."
According to NFL.com, Smith was not "overly impressive." His top 40-yard dash time was 5.28 seconds and he bench pressed 225 pounds just 19 times.
According to our league source, Smith ran with no shirt on and was visibly overweight. With a group of trainers urging him on to run faster, Smith had a generally rough day.

, expounding upon an earlier report
on one of the staff blogs at NFL.com.
In other words, to put it mildly, Andre bombed at the Alabama Pro Day. It's hard to even know what to say at this point, other than Smith's draft stock has dropped so far it's almost like it just jumped out of an airplane cruising at 30,000 feet with no parachute. There are a lot of rumblings that he might even fall out of the first round. I know it's not too surprising, I suppose, given his complete lack of conditioning just a few weeks back at the NFL Combine, but the totality of events is still hard to believe.
No word yet on how other Alabama players performed. We'll have more on them when it becomes available.
