    Former Kent State wide receiver Shawn Bayes worked out today for Hamilton Ti-cats (as a fallback if he doesn't make a N.F.L. team) and he ran the 40 yard dash in 4.29/4.30/4.36 on the infield turf at their stadium. Bayes, who has consistently run in the 4.3's for U.S. scouts at his Pro Days, is a potential latter round pick/priority free agent type N.F.L. prospect due to his kick and punt return skills.

    From his HS stats, he looks like he was a better corner than WR. Excels as a returner too. Added to the UDFA file. Thanks!
