They have less body fat to move. The high vertical jumpers tend to be very blessed genetically with some common characteristics..........long Achilles tendons (look again at Posey's large pic above), long thighs, high muscle attachments (all of the aforementioned which lead to the greatest efficiency of transfer of energy)............. with coordination of very strong (not necessarily bulked) quad muscles, followed by hamstrings, glutes and, lastly, calf muscles.
Yeah. During the Combine one year, Deion was saying the thin calves thing was actually what you look for in a fast guy who can jump.

I've known a couple of guys with thick calves with a vertical but lots of times (with the people I know), thick calves seem to correlate to people who've had weight issues at some point. The calf muscles seem to grow with lots of volume work and being overweight and walking a lot seems to be the best way to grow them. Lots of bodybuilders moan about their lack of calf development but most of those guys have been relatively light for the majority of their lives.

Oops. Sorry. Pushed a button...
