Here's what I've been able to find about Matt Ryan's pro-day workout up in Chestnut Hill, MA.
First of all, the Dolphins had two representatives at the workout. They are Chris Grier, the team's director of college scouting, and David Lee, their QB coach.
It'll be impossible to get any quotes out of Dolphin officials, for obvious reasons. But Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards, who was present at the workout, had the following to say about Matt's performance:
Also of note for Dolphin fans, the Sun-Sentinel reports that BC offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus also performed well at the workout. Cherilus is a guy who could very well be on Miami's radar withthe #32 pick if they do not select Jake Long with their 1st pick.
Update [2008-3-18 21:43:55 by Matty I]: The Palm Beach Post offers up this quote by Matt Ryan following his pro-day workout:
Meanwhile, Armando Salguero had the following to say about Matt Ryan's workout:
Vikings personnel man Rick Spielman ('memba him?) also agreed Ryan was pressing.
Question: So some quarterbacks, including Ryan, throw too hard when the media is watching? I have news for the kid and that is the media watches practices, scrimmages and games. So he better get over it.
Bottom line is I would not draw too many conclusions from what happened Tuesday because Ryan, along with the Longs and possibly others will be scrutinized some more by the Dolphins. And as to what the Dolphins will do, nobody knows.
