Why wasn’t Darren Carrington drafted?

Darren Carrington had 66 catches, 918 yards and 6 TDs last year for the Utes. DC had 2,837 total receiving yards for his career overall. Why was he overlooked during the NFL draft this weekend?

A 4.78 forty time is what’s to blame. It’s not just the past off the field issues, it’s the speed. If DC was hurt, he shouldn’t have ran a 40 at all. The fact that he ran a slow time makes teams think that his natural speed is lacking and that he has to train himself to be fast.
