Default Reggie Nelson's Ridiculous Pro Day

TFY initially reported that Nelson ran a 4.22 40 time at his Gator pro day....

"The moment that Reggie Nelson crossed the finish line and the pro scouts checked the number on their stopwatches, they started looking at each other and shaking their heads. The lowest number read 4.22. The highest read just a shade under 4.3. Nobody was the least bit surprised thirty minutes later when Nelson declined to run again. That sub-4.3 40 was all the statement he needed to make."

being just a tad bit skeptical, i decided to check NFL.com. here we go:

"Nelson ran the 40 once in a time of 4.35 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot-6 long jump, ran 4.15 in the short shuttle and 6.70 in the three-cone drill. Nelson looked very good in the drills and may well have improved his stock. "

still, we're looking at a guy here who ran a 4.35, compared to the 4.55 he ran at the combine. his stock was near the end of the first, and now look at what we have here. top 15 pick.

Great chance of going top 15 now, perhaps the Falcons grab him now they have Horn??

No way he ran a 4.2. I have seen him play, and he is not as fast or faster than Mathis.

IMO he just caught back up with Laron Landry for the first S taken.

Wow, that's really impressive. He pretty much had to do that. It looks like he just had a bad day at the combine. just made himself some money there.

He may have but I still take Landry over Nelson any day of the week. Landry's 1 inch taller and about 15 lbs heavier....and now it looks like they pretty much have the same speed. Both are ball-hawks but Landry is a much better tackler imo.

I agree it looks like Atlanta is gonna take whoever is highest on their list. Landry,Nelson, Hall etc. There's a lot of talk they'd be moving one of their cb's to safety. it looks like secondary to me..for their pick

Thats impressive, but I really question why it didn't show at the combine which was only 2 weeks ago. Does anyone else wonder or am I the only one who is curious how he dropped .2 of his 40 time?

I think he just had a bad day and didn't run very well at the combine. His time at the combine REALLY surprised me...so i just think it was an 'off' day for him.

Numbers aside, the bottom line is that this guy can play the hell out of the safety position! Whoever gets him is going to get a guy with 'STARDOM' written all over him.
