Question If Bush fails to run a sub 4.5 40-dash will it change...

If Bush fails to run a sub 4.5 40-dash at his pro will it change his draft position?

Personally, I think that Reggie will run in the low 4.4's --but-- seeing as some were surprised by VY's and some others slower (or faster) times how do you think it will effect the decisions of those making the big call?

A speedier than expected sprint in the 40 from a prospect can certainly bump them up -- could a slower than expected run notch the Heisman Trophy winner out of the number one spot...

I think I can safely say that Bush will not run a 4.5 + 40.

It's not like Bush is that athletic. I'm expecting something around the 4.8-4.9 range.

Exactly, at 32 yards, he'll jump and land 2-3 yards after the finish line

There is no way that Bush cannot spend 4 billion in 4.5 seconds.

we already know what he can do on a College field. Last year JJ Arrington had just as impressive YPC, and he was the super flop of the draft for the Cards. Same skillset. There are no sure things out there.

JJ averaged 7 ypc, Reggie averaged ~9 ypc

Big difference

no it's not a big difference. They both have the exact same skillset and the exact same questions about their abilities to run inside. Bush had nearly 100 less carries and was on a team with the best offensive talent in decades. Arrington didn't have Lendale White, and several NFL prospects taking the attention away form him.

In answer to the original question, I think it would definitely change his status, even though it shouldn't. For instance, I made fun of Young some about the Wonderlic score(s) and it did hurt him a lot I think, but I don't think his IQ has anything at all to do with his ability to play QB. If it did, he would've sucked at the college level. All this pre-draft stuff seems over-hyped to me and looking back at what they did in college (and who they played with and against) SHOULD carry much more weight.

Looking at your choices, I can't answer. He will be an elite player (if he can stay healthy and run descent between the tackles some), but I think a slower than expected time would hurt his pre-draft status. We'll probably take him anyway though.

Which freaking side am I on anyway? :

I've seen both play many games and Reggie is much better. JJ isn't nearly as explosive as Reggie.

I didnt realy mean he was a sure thing. I meant more we know he is quick and has good speed whether it be timed speed or not.
