Dez Bryant worked out in his hometown of Lufkin, Texas on Tuesday, finally providing NFL scouts a showcase.

Bryant skipped the NFL scouting combine and Oklahoma State's pro day earlier this month because of a hamstring injury.

Bryant ran a pair of 40s in 4.52 and 4.68 seconds. He was asked to run again because of the discrepancy and was able to duplicate the 4.52 time, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com. Bryant's second 40 was run into the wind. A scout at the workout told ESPN's Adam Schefter he clocked Bryant at 4.57.

The 4.52 time would put him .03 seconds outside of the top 10 times by receivers recorded at the combine.

Bryant measured at 6-foot-1.5 and 224 pounds. He also recorded a 38-inch vertical jump and an 11-foot-1 broad jump. His time in the 20-yard shuttle was 4.48 seconds was clocked at 7.21 seconds in the three-cone drill.

He hasn't played since September, before he was suspended for the final 10 games of the 2009 season.

Both Mel Kiper and Todd McShay have Bryant being selected No. 11 overall by the Denver Broncos in their latest mock drafts. Schefter reported Bryant was also scheduled to dine with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Wednesday before meeting with the Cowboys at Valley Ranch on Thursday.

"I just don’t want to be sitting there on draft day with a great opportunity," Jones told reporters at last week's owners meetings, "and not having really done what we ought to have been doing which is know everything about him or any other player of that quality."
