Louisville HC Bobby Petrino barred RB Michael Dyer from working out at the school's pro day due to the player's academic suspension in the Belk Bowl against Georgia.
"This has left a bad taste with a lot of people, who feel Petrino is turning his back on the ball-carrier," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline commented. "Instead of participating at Louisville's pro day, Dyer will hold his own workout afterward at duPont Manual High School, a mile from the Cardinals' Stadium." Whether Petrino is right or wrong -- and most are predisposed to believe he is wrong, regardless of the situation -- the bigger issue here is another off-field concern for Dyer. The running back, you'll recall, left Auburn after two 1,000-yard rushing seasons due to numerous off-field problems. He transferred to Arkansas State after the 2011 season and was dismissed by the Gus Malzahn-led staff, eventually spending 2012 at Arkansas Baptist College before landing at Louisville. He's a fringe Day 3 pick. Mar 11 - 7:25 PM
