Now a guy that runs a 40 yard dash in 6 secs is not going to play WR in the NFL, but that guy didn't succeed at college ball either, so it's a moot point.
To me anything over a 4.7 at WR and a 4.8 at running back. Yes, I might miss a once in a life time player but I know that statistically i'll be right at a much great percentage. Its easy to see statistical out liners and have them bias your opinion. I'm not looking to be right 100%.
“The measurables to us are very important,” Polian said at the combine. “There are guys we eliminate based on the measurables. Our studies show us over time that at a certain speed, it’s virtually impossible to play at a certain position in the National Football League and play well.”
