Default How fast is Reggie Bush? Can he run as fast as AJ

I was wondering if Bush has the speed of AJ? If so, its a given that we should take him in the draft considering he could be a reciever.

We won't know exactly until he has his workouts or attends the combine, but according to NFLDraftCountdown.com he runs a 4.28 40. In high school he was one of the best track runners in the state in California and was planning on being part of both the football team and the track team at USC. He ran an electrically timed 10.42 100m when he was a junior in High School.

Ive watched both A LOT, and Bush has that rare elite elite speed, and has a step on AJ.

And then he will pick himself off the turf and get ready for the next play like every other football player in the NFL.

Probably more than once , but it will be in a Texans uniform. And then he will get up and go back to the huddle after the nice gain.

I want that LB then, because that is one fast mo fo. I'll give bush he's fast, because the only LB catching him after 35 yards was starting on the sidelines.

I just dont see him being that instant sucess. He made his living bouncing far to the outside and having downfield blockers, along with complete field cutbacks. Neither of those two work very well in the NFL on most occasions.

I was going to say you probably were thinking more along the lines of a CB or S doing the hit.

no joke! unless our LB is in a prevent D, and 40 yards back, he would not make the tackle. Bush is faster than most lbs once he is past them. However, most LB's are quick enough laterally to get that first hit on him, and that will prove to be enough most times.

He has made his living out of playing with super talented teammates, speed, and vision. Which two of the three he will take to the NFL.

We will soon see. The Rose Bowl is this week and the Combine is a coming. I would not have picked him based on his performance through 2004, but I have watched every game USC played this year and he has gotten better throughout. He was also good in the clutch, which is an area we have lots of problems.

He's faster than a speeding bullet....but that's not even his best trait - he can see in the dark. Incredible night vision, better than daredevil.
