I guess that's not really surprising. There is no bigger platform then the combine and combining that with the fast track would lead to some pretty impressive numbers.
I know some schools let them run on the track and you would have to figure those are the ones that fit into that 20% or so.
If that's the case then I'd be sitting on these times at my pro day, and just run skill drills.
I'm thinking I'd rather have Charles over Johnson. CJ just looks too slim to me. He's built like a wideout.
Either way, I'm going to pitch a hissy fit if we dont' try and get Rice if he's there in the second round.
I just really like the Westbrook type talent Johnson brings but I would not complain if we landed either one of them.
You talk about Rice in the 2nd, you think it would be to much of a stress at 28 in round 1? Basically it's only 3 picks from the 2nd round this year and with him posting good numbers I'm not sure he is not legitimate 1st round material now.
Oh God, Schefter just started the McFadden to Dallas rumors up again.
I think I'm gonna go run my head into a wall.
I want to punch that little Schefter piece of **** in the face right now.
that's not true at all
I wish it would die. It's to much to give up unless McFadden drops out of the top 10
He's still pimpin that Miami deal isn't he? Like a little ankle biter, he won't let it go
Well technically no but I think a majority of people hope Jones would not sell the farm to make it possible.
Ah my boy CJ 4.24 has to be a record of some sort =)
I thought they said it was the 2nd fastest recorded time in history. I will admit, it did not help my disturbing case of man love for him.
One must consider the possibility of trading up for DMac...I'm against it, but if JJ would give up two #1's for Joey Galloway, then it's not that much of a stretch to admit JJ doing it for DMac is also a possibility.
lol CJ speed second to none in this draft every1
No theres not. Over 40 yards, someone who runs 1/10 of a second faster than another player will be 1.5 yards ahead. So the difference between a 4.5 and a 4.6 is about 4.5 feet. The difference between a 4.27 and 4.33, over 40 yards, is less than 2.5 feet. Not a big difference at all.
*this is based on something I saw on TV last year, leading up to the combine so I haven't done the math on it myself. I'll check it later today.
You know, Ray Rice may have done enough today to be the 4th RB taken like you were talking about.
Johnson ran a 4.24. so it would be about a tenth difference 4.5 ft is 1.5yards...which is 1.5 steps...Even Deon said 1 step is alot.
i hope our 2nd 1st round pick is good enough to pick rice! If it's not Rice or Stewart I do not want a RB...
It's just about a yard. I guess at most positions it's not that big of a deal but if we were talking WR and CB it would come down to the old saying. If your even your leaving. That 2.5 feet would be huge.
Thanks for the break down though, I never saw that.
Huh? I was just responding to the guy who said that McFadden's first time was significantly better than his second. I wasn't talking about Chris Johnson at all. But anyways, a "step" which is really a stride, is on average is about 2.7 yards for an athlete thats 6 feet tall.
So you have to be about .175 slower than someone else to be a step behind. .175 seconds is a significant difference, that's why being behind by a "step" is a lot.
