Posey is faster than that. His combine time was 4.37.
The numbers quoted were for Jean.

Well .... you get the point anyway. Having fast receivers would be just as great as having a QB that could throw him open.
I don't know about Jean, but if Schaub takes a 5 step drop Dre has already out ran his arm.
