That's pretty good speed along with Marlon Mack. It wouldn't upset me if he's there at #3 and Ballard pulls the trigger. I think he will help Andrew a lot. Wonder how the other RBs do for this drill.

Who was it that said he ran a 4.3 forty yard dash?  I mean 4.41 is still quick and he has a second opportunity, but still...

Probably Jshipp if I had to guess. 

 

Wouldnt be be surprised if he runs again at his pro day to try to improve it

4.41 is actually very, very impressive for a running back his size.  For reference Alvin Kamara ran a 4.56 and he is considered amongst the fastest in the league.  Elliot ran a 4.47, Bell 4.6, Hunt 4.62, David Johnson 4.5, Dalvin 4.49.

I doubt he runs again at his pro day.  4.41 is fast enough and there's not much to gain if you ask me.  He's already one of the highest graded players.  Let's say he runs a 4.35, how much higher would he be drafted based off that alone.  I mean, if he doesn't show well at the cone drills, or some other drill, I could see him trying to improve that time, but to me, there's little to gain re-running the 40.

Kinda why I said that I cannot believe  he ran at all

The same reason guys don’t throw at the combine

    A Comfort Thing

 

Qbs don't throw bc they don't have chemistry with the receivers at the combine so it could make them look bad. They'd rather throw to their receivers. Comfort has nothing to do with the 40 at the combine.

JMO but 40s have no place in the combine

 

 

 

  it has a lot to do with comfort since if you don’t feel comfortable you don’t perform well and the surroundings of the combine doesn’t produce comfort for some

The thing is, the 40 doesn't even capture why Saquan is truly special. What really makes him who he is is his elusiveness. He has the best lateral cutting ability I've seen since Barry Sanders.

I couldn't disagree more. The 40 is one of the more important measurements for skilled positions.

Wow how narrow minded could you be. I bet if he was at 220 he'd be in the 4.35-8 area but you'd complain that he isn't at his real weight.  Being dismissive of this with this size is utter denial.

Meh...seems to be important for corners.  Not sure how important it is for the skill positions.

His 40 is great, especially at his size, no doubt about it. But the hype machine had him at 4.3. Which is why I've been saying, let's kill the hype. He's good enough without having to pump him up into a demi-god.

Eh, I don't see that.  Barry Sanders made people look stupid.  It was a different game back then of course.  Even so, No one was better than him.

Speaking of being narrow minded, how narrow minded does one have to be to realize I was not taking issue with the time itself, but simply that some poster was wrong?

good time.  he could run the fastest 40 ever and the running back haters would still say its not enough 

He could run 4 flat and I wouldn't care.  We all knew he was fast.

    • Nah, Griggs would be out of breath and sweating burger grease by the two minute mark.  Ballard looks scrappy.
    • Come on... No, you know what, I realize some here like Doyle. I just have never liked Doyle. Doyle is not an impact player to me. Yes I know that sometimes a key first down pickup by a Doyle catch is an impact play in that moment, it's just Doyle has so few moments that he might as well be on another team making a very low impact. Honestly, Ebron in his first year with Colts ironically has been the best TE the colts have had since Dallas Clark... That should tell you something
    • I've said numerous times combined we're gonna pay around 50 mil a year.   Nelson 16-18 mil Leonard 18-20 mil Smith 14-15 mil
    • Wentz will need protection if he is going to deliver. Yesterday it was said of him he was thought to be the second coming of Andrew Luck. Lets hope that is not the case when he goes under center and gets racked all season long like Luck.
    • Luck retired right before the 2019 season.   That only gave Ballard 1 offseason to address the QB situation.  He knew the team was good and didn't want to waste a year so he brought in Rivers.   Rivers had a good year despite no training camp or preseason with the receivers.  Went 11-5.   68% completions, 24TD's, 11 INT's.  Lost by 3 in the playoffs.  I was pretty happy with the season.  Now, a year and a half later he has the future QB on the team.   I'm glad he didn't reach too much.  I suppose he could have drafted Jalen Hurts but he took Pittman and Taylor instead and grabbed Eason in the 4th round.  I think he handled this well.
