Discussion in 'College Football & the NFL Draft' started by Wolf, Jan 17, 2008.
We humbly disgree: Signed Mario Willams, Devon Heter, Lafou Tatupu, Antonio Cromartie, Jason Peters, Logan Matkins, Tony Ugoh.
We are talking Athletism here. You can't buy it, wish it or pray for it. You either got it or you don't. And I guess this means that Petey Faggin is comprable to Antonio Cromartie ? Which one do you want starting for your football team @ Cb ?
Mindless off season blige. Wasted band wideth.
athleticism is #1. period. for every DeMeco Ryans (guys who were All-Americans and all-conference and fell a bit in the draft), there are guys who were All-Americans and did NOTHING in the NFL.
For running backs, a 4.33 and 4.46 is very different. Holes don't stay open for very long and those extra .13 seconds could be the difference between making it through and a shoe string tackle.
Yeah but then you have guys that can run a very fast 40 but do not have that intial busrt to get to the hole as quickly as someone with a slower 40 time.
that's why there are all kinds of speed tests at the combine, not just the 40, which everyone who's not a scout only focuses on.
You shouldn't put all your evaluation of a player on his combine workout, but the numbers at the combine are a good way to compare players in different aspects of athleticism.
