What do you think his 40 will be?

Will be impress scouts?

Will he catch the ball well, etc?

I think he will/should run a blazing 40...4.30-4.35..he just looks so fast!!!

03-29-2006, 09:33 AM
I think Bush will tear up the 40...anything above 4.35 would surprise me and I could see him hitting the 4.25-4.28 range.

I expect any questions about his pass-catching ability (for those who haven't been paying attention) will be answered, emphatically.

Agility drills? Are you kidding me?

I foresee a bit more solidarity on these boards after April 2nd.

I see him running in the 4.36-4.44 range. I think his short shuttle will be impressive also.

Unlike others, who aren't taking their draft position seriously, All I hear is how hard Reggie is working to get in "NFL Shape" & his desire to be picked #1 overall. I expect him to be at the top of his game & impress EVERY one. Even the Vince/Trade down lovers. Leinart will look good too I am guessing, canceling any beliefs of Vince to the Titans. :twocents:

Really can't wait to see Reggie run the 40:superman:

to be honest i think if runs anything higher than a 4.4 40 i think it's going to be a disapointment...the story on this is kid is that he is crazy fast like mathis and has the agility of barry sanders...so if he's not running atleast in the 4.3's i think it's going to make every step back and think for awhile...now what do i think he's gonna run...after watching film on the kid i see him running the in the 4.2's...that's what i would be expecting from him

Do you really think that he is going to be able to run the 40 in the 4.2's. That is crazy fast. Isnt that faster than Mathis.

This is what I expect:

Reggie Bush will have a very solid Pro Day.

There are less things that he will be asked to do that will involve interpretation--like it is for QBs.

Matt Leinart will have a very solid Pro Day too, but will be stumped when asked why his name violates the "i before e except after c" rule.

Hahahaha. Seriously, if that doesn't drop his draft stock, I don't know what will.

And that is part of the beauty of RB in general -- less scrutinized that QB's whose names start with Vince and end in Young. RB position simply features less intangibles to measure or consider, and there have been less questions asked about Reggie to this point. Put up hot measurables and solidify your top 3 status (some would say top status, but I haven't fully conceded him going to the Texans just yet.)

I think Reggie can run a 4.28, 4.29. I expect however he will run in the low to mid 4.3s.

BeReal
03-29-2006, 11:14 AM
Yeah, it would be faster than Mathis. I think he'll record times b/t 4.29 and 4.44. He's put on some weight though, so I'm not sure how much it'll affect his acceleration.

Reggie Bush used to be a high school sprinter(100 & 200m) as well and was in the top 5 in California if I remember correctly... So to say that his speed is comparable or maybe better than Mathis' isnt far off...Id love to see him hit mid 4.2's...and have the league go into a frenzy...and the way he apparently works out and trains...it probably isnt out of the picture

Nice bit of info. I didnt know that. Maybe his speed is better than I thought it might be. I was think mid to high 4.3's. But wow, 4.2's thats flying. Man you put the speed of Mathis in a guy that can cut back like Reggie with Reggie's vision. Thats deadly.:drool:

It was on another thread but in 2002 Reggie won the Boys 50m race at the LA Indoor Track and Field event with a time of 5.87 and came in second place the next year with a time of 5.85 (lost by .03 seconds). I know it isn't exact, but if you convert 50m to 40y he ran in the mid to high 4.2 range.

03-29-2006, 11:37 AM
I don't care what he runs personally. (to be fair, I didn't care that Vince ran slower than expected) I could care less if he runs a 3.98 or a 5.98. All I care about is how many guys were able to catch him from behind? Case closed. :ok:

Precisely. 40 times are way over rated imo. I am more interested in knowing the guys speed with pads on, and also some guys have better game speed than others. If 40 times were all that important, Carl Lewis would be in the HOF, and Jerry Rice would be fixing automobiles at some run down repair shop in Mississippi. All I know is that the guy outruns every DB and LB in College, so that's all I care about.

WELL, I fully expect for the whole crew of "obviously USC biased" commentator's from the ESPN USC FLUNKY UNIVERSITY to casually stroll around the palm tree/manicured grounds of the USC athletic fields with their lips uber glistening in lieu of the post marks via reggie bush's butt cheeks.......

FOR GOD ONLY KNOWS HOW THEY HAVE HELPED HIM ALL ALONG.......

This kid is only human......and he will perform as only a human being can be allowed/expected to perform, respectively speaking that is........

If he is the consumate professional, then he will perform as such. For after all.......ESPN did however succeed in granting him the all important HEISMAN TROPHY. Am I correct? Therefore, if he is indeed worthy of this all important acclaim/accolade........then this WHOLE THREAD IS HEREBY IRRELEVENT!

once he doesnt run anything 4.5+ i dont care...and the only reason id care then is that it would increase the pressure not to take him, ie. not any football reason.
that being said i cant see him running anything 4.4+- he was a sprinter so hes just as fast in shorts as in pads-i expect a low 4.3...and a 4.2 would change alot of opinions from casual fans who want VY

I expect a sub 4.4 forty.
I expect impressive (to scouts) cone drills.
I expect him to solidify the notion that he's a good receiver.

However, I'm not going to put an emphasis on any of that. If he blows up and runs a 4.1, benches 37 reps...who cares?

Seriously, what are you going to gain about a player's ability w/o pads, w/o contact, under controlled conditions in a 4 to 5 hour workout that you weren't able to obtain through 3 years of on the field performance?

Are they going to run drills that illustrate how well he's able to pick up a blitz?

If he did that I would care. For other teams players. 37 reps damn sounds like he could stiff arm defenders with his pinky. A 4.1 40 damn is he speedy Gonzalez's cousin. Damn.

Realistically I expect him to run in the mid 4.2's to low 4.3's. and Bench 24-27 times. and a 40 in. vert.

He might figure out how to accidentally change direction in mid-air or something.

AJExplosion80
03-29-2006, 06:48 PM
It doesn't matter as long as he runs less than 4.4 he will be fine. I want to see him catch the ball consistently and would like to see if he has strengthened at all. I don't think any player coming out of college is just automatically going to be great but I think this player is something special and it will be nice for him to be able to split carries with DD because I think that will benefit him. I mean look at most of the teams now a days they have 2 solid backs to keep them healthy. I would to see them start working on a contract when they are there at USC so we know what is going on. Battle Red all the way. "Hey Mr. at the counter can I get a Reggie Bush Battle Red Jersey. Thanks!!!! :ok: "

I predict the Pro Day will end with Reggie Bush and Vince Young in a duel to the death. No more wondering, no more questions, no more decision to make. Our draft pick and the fate of the free world to be decided on this one fight.

Who do you pick? Quick, small guy, or big lanky guy? Reggie had a better Wonderlic ... if that isn't an indication of who will kick who's butt, I don't know what it is.

Reggie by TKO in less than 60 seconds.

Bush's speed is kind of wierd. In one game, he's just blazing fast, yet on another, he's being caught from behind. In the Rose Bowl, he was nearly picked off by a Texas linebacker. Maybe that was Leinhart's fault, but hey, a Texas linebacker made a play on him. And on Bush's fumble in the 1st half, I bellieve he was chased down by someone. Yet on another play, he simply outruns Michael Huff to the endzone. I'm not really sure what to expect on his 40-time. Anything below a 4.4 is definitely not good though. His cone drills will be interesting as well.

What I really want to know is how well he can run routes. His hand are great I'm sure. Is this guy really the bes reciever in the draft as well? I'd sure like to find out. You rarely see someone who is the best player in the draft at 2 positions. :cool:

03-31-2006, 11:19 PM
40 times in workouts are meaningless

Chad Johnson ran like a 4.5 for his workouts

Vince Young ran like a 4.5 in his workouts



I've never seen anyone catch either of those guys from behind on the field, that being said, Reggie is faster than both of them and I would expect something in the 4.3's



I agree alot with what "Huge" said though, none of this is a great indicator of how good someone is going to be at the next level

jacquescas
04-01-2006, 12:12 AM
i think he has the ability to run under 4.3 but there have to be soo many things have to happen, plus he is around 208lbs so he has some extra weight. I expect him to run in the 4.3 range nothing faster than a 4.36. If he was able to crack into the 4.29 and lower range with the extra weight the draft discussions are over.

This just in: Reggie Bush pulls out of USC's Pro Day.
Story by Hottoddie

Under the advisement of his agent, Bush will not participate in USC's Pro Day. When asked why, Bush replied, "As my agent said, why should I? I'm already the #1 overall pick & there's no where to go, but down."

When Bush's agent was asked why, he replied, "Well, I hear that Lendale White has been working out real hard, & I'm afraid that he might make my client look bad. And, besides, Reggie's already been annointed the #1 overall pick by the media & fans. What more does he have to prove?"

When Kubiak was asked about what he thought, he replied, "WTF? f$#a^ @r!*)% k#p^*$......" There were other things that he said, but we're not permitted to print them.

When Casserly was asked his opinion, he replied with, "What do I care? I'm out of here."

When Bob McNair was asked if he was disappointed......, Oh wait, that's right, he didn't show up for Bush's Pro Day. Hmmmm, wonder what that's saying? :stirpot:

You've got to have a little fun. To bad I didn't think to start a thread about this yesterday. :brickwall :D
