That is terrible...yikes...

and you know SOMEONE is going to pick him up

He will be a second day pick, someone will take a chance on him. ROFL 4.82 there are LB's and DL's that run faster then that.

Wow. Someone'll take a chance, no doubt.

I bet he gets drafted in the 4 to 5th round range

"You've got to be (kidding) me," he said. "I can't remember the last time a back ran that slow here."

ROFL, damn he just lost him self a whole bunch of money. He should have just skipped the combine and got drafted in the 3rd or 4th round.

I just dont understand how a damn running back runs a 4.82, I bet Eddie George runs it in like 4.5

I totally agree. If you gave me 3 weeks of decent conditioning work (which I could do all on my own, in the little free time I have), even I could run a 4.75 still. Yeah and he was talking about how hard he was working for the past year, I dont think so buddy. There are 300 pound linemen running as fast as you.

Ditto. I ran sub-5s in high school and I played G/LB.

I bet I could still do it with a couple months of sprint work. And I'm 39.

Now, if I bulked up to 230, I probably couldn't. But still. 4.8? Sheesh.

Courtney Roby (former IU WR) ran a 4.33 today. They say he should go early 3rd round. Sorry I am an IU fan. And yes I know they havent had a good teams in the past few years. I like our new coach though. Very positive guy. I think he can bring in some recruits and hopefully turn things aroud for us.

For someone who doesn't know too much about this, what's a "good" 40 run?

02-27-2005, 10:36 PM
oh ok. Thank you for the detailed explanation! :)

And as a retired sprinter...

let me just emphasize that the difference between 4.35 and 4.40 is huge... the gap from 4.40 to something north of 4.75 is like the gap between Tokyo and San Francisco. Not even close.

Before the US track team got caught up in the Balco scandal, breaking the world record by 0.05 of a second in a sprint was considered a major, major accomplishment.

I used to wear a t-shirt on race days that said, "winning and losing is measured by hundredths of a second."

What I think you're saying - and you're absolutely right - is that if the guy that runs a 4.34 can only go straight ahead (in other words, me), a guy that can run a 4.55 and has superior lateral agility might be the better back.

Now if the guy that runs a 4.34 can bowl over anyone in his way - and in his prime we call him "Bettis" - then the lateral agility thing is moot.
