Isn't it more interesting how fast they are in pads?

Kenneth Walker probably cemented being the first RB taken

Olave might have made himself a Raider with that time, lol.

David Bell dropping down based on measurables, so he's gonna be a steal for some team.

I wonder if NFL scouts put as much emphasis on hundreths of a second here as many of the public.

I assume they have a sort of cut-off:  below this time, we want you, above it....no thanks.

I know from his time at Tennessee, Ty Chandler is a master at 2 things:
1 - getting tripped up by a random hand on his foot, especially when there's daylight
and
2 - he'll hit a 65-yard run....but only rush for 20 yards the rest of the game

Cincy, maybe you could correct me, but I find it odd that the banger RB Cook ran only 0.02 slower than the long-striding, toss-sweep guy in White.  I'm not talking about what they could or might do, but more how they were used at UGA.  

Is that off?

They were not dissimilar backs in the UGA offense, in my view, Cook was used a bit more often catching passes.  Cook initially was viewed as a kind of scat back, but he could carry between the tackles as well, and White was about the same.  I think White had more impact and better balance after contact.  Cook was still a bit more agile.

Speed in pads is more important I think.  I think White would be the better choice in the NFL.

6 guys under 4.4 seems like a lot

If I was an NFL GM, I'd pay lots of money for real, midseason 40 times for these guys.

These times are a bit silly, as these players have been doing nothing but training for this since the end of the season.  It would be useful for a potential track career, not football.

I worked with the girlfriend of an eventual 4th round RB and he'd swing by every day after training.  He knew exactly how many strides his 40 should have, working on his start a lot, etc.  That's not football, lol.

It's like studying for the SATs.  What are we doing here?

Like Jimmy Johnson use to tell scouts "Ya but can he play" and he'd repeat that mantra no matter how many measurables were placed in front of him.

I only look at the 40 times as mostly meaningless, and only a plus if the guy has proven he can already play- like KWIII. But even if he didn't run that sort of time- and he was in the 4.5's - he'd still be the best back in the draft imo.
