No NFL scouts at Green's workout due to labor rule

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A.J. Green's workout for NFL scouts was
anything but conventional at Georgia's pro day.

Green, likely to be the first receiver drafted next month, went
through a 30-minute session Tuesday that private coach George
Whitfield had scripted.

But a hitch in league rules prevented scouts from watching in

During the NFL lockout, only draft-eligible players are allowed
to participate in a pro day, and they either must live within a
40-mile radius of the workout site's metropolitan area or have
played college football in-state.

Green's workout partner, former Montana and Oregon quarterback
Justin Roper, lives six miles outside the radius. Green decided to
workout with Roper anyway and let scouts watch it on tape.
