Eron Riley wasn't invited to the NFL Combine or a postseason all-star game.
The Duke receiver is big, runs a sub-4.4 40-yard dash and put up big numbers in college. He doesn't know what else he can do to get the scouts' attention.
"I can only control what I do," Riley said Thursday.
Riley turned heads at Duke's pro day with a 4.35 in the 40 and a 40-inch vertical leap but the only workout the 6-3 receiver got from an NFL team was with Green Bay, and that was catching passes from Greg Paulus.
"It hurt a little bit at first," Riley said of the lack of attention, "but whatever happens, happens."
Riley finished his Duke career with 22 career touchdowns, eight in 2008 to go along with 61 catches for 693 yards. He had some issues with a hand injury, and dropped passes in 2008, but he has been a productive receiver, with size, in the ACC for three seasons.
His strength could be a question mark but he did 13 reps in the bench press (225 pounds), not that far off of Maryland's Darrius Heyward-Bey, who did 15 reps at the combine and is expected to be a first-round pick.
Riley said he has talked to just about every team but has only had the one workout. He said he will watch some of the second day of the draft on Sunday on TV. He hopes to hear his name but expects to have to go the free-agent route.
"It would be nice to get drafted and to feel more wanted but I just want the chance to get on a team," he said.
