I was wondering about his 40 time. Says here it was 4.75 which is not blazing but considering he was 6’5-1/2” and 262 lbs at the time, it’s respectable.
He may not be able to run away from some defenders but he can certainly box them out.
It also said a few teams were interested in him.
One thing I’ll say about Bob though, his small size & Wolverine (comic book character) mentality made him a terror against the run. With him already being short, when he went submarine on a RB, they really risked their careers if their feet were planted when the Colonel was coming for them. He turned so many guys into tip toe bandits or sent them helicoptering into the air. No wonder our run defense was so stout. Usually only took 1 “meeting” with Bob in the hole, to put fear in the RB’s head the rest of the game... You had to know where he was at all times or kiss your knees goodbye.
I have to disagree with the last sentence. I think Sean Taylor (The former Hurricane & Redskin safety) was and would have statistically been better than all 3 had he not been murdered. That dude was what you’d get if you created a cyborg safety. Big. Fast. Physical. And immaculate receiver level ball skills... I still love the other 3, especially the Colonel, but Taylor was on another level. A combination of all 3.
