NFL Draft 2014: Cyrus Kouandjio didn’t work out at Alabama Pro Day


At the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, Alabama Crimson Tide offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons. There were were some injury concerns about Kouandjio’s knee after poor medicals, but he was eventually cleared by a third-party doctor that performed his knee surgery.

Kouandjio had an opportunity to generate positive buzz at Alabama’s Pro Day, but he chose to pass on the opportunity and was the only player that didn’t take part in the workout.

Kouandjio entered the season in the discussion as a potential No. 1 overall pick, but he has fallen throughout the season and it will be interesting to see how the poor medicals and decision to skip his Pro Day will affect his draft stock.
