    People may not know the answer to this, however I was intrigued to know what Kevin Walter's 40 time was? Anyone know?

    I've looked at most major draft sites and have yet to see a 40 time for him listed. Strange.

    I don't know. I think it's around 4.6 but I can't find any proof of that.

    The page for his draft profile no longer exists but found this from browsing through the net. Looks pretty legit from a while back though it seems, just after we cut Moulds. Looks like had ran around a 4.56, cant complain at that to be honest.

    Is this somehow supposed to support the notion that he isn't fast enough to be the #2 receiver?

    i have zero complaints about him being our #2
    he is just too consistant. and is def not too slow
    to be our 2. :goodpost:

    I would love to see the combine put an emphasis on timing sprints under game conditions.

    1. Each player must wear what they would during a game
    2. Each player must run a mile under a certain time depending on their position.
    3. 2 minutes after running the mile, they run the 40.

    If they could have some type of blocking drill that would be the same for everyone, that should be between the mile run and the 40. That would make the 40 time a much better measure for how well someone can run in full pads in the fourth quarter after running up and down the field and after being hit a few times. Some of these little guys who can run a 4.3 on a track end up being slower than a 4.5 guy who can actually play football.

    or maybe they could just hire some people who's job it would be to be able to tell the difference and relay that to the GM. we could call them "searchers" or "seekers" or "scouts" or something.

    40 times really do not make that much of a difference unless you are returning kicks. If you are football fast (good cuts,crisp routes) you will be just fine if you have good hands which he does.

    Walter isn't a speed guy, he's a "possession receiver", which of course is
    code for a slow white guy.

    That's a weird site. What are they implying? That white college football coaches are discriminating against white athletes? Seriously?

    Here, they create a list of "...recruited white athletes at the "white prohibited" positions of running back (no FBs included), defensive back, and wide receiver...also included players listed as "Athletes" as they generally will play one of these positions."

    Sam McGuffie? Ever heard of him? High school All-American RB from Cy Fair, YouTube legend, and Michigan Wolverine recruit? Apparently, the geniuses at castefootball haven't.

    This youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Z0oAjljN_s&feature=related
    is a clip of Sam McGuffie verbally committing to Michigan on Channel 2. There are other school's hats on the desk but I can't quite make out who all the schools were. I wonder if those schools were on the list of schools named in the castefootball article. (someone with better eyes check it out - the only other school I thought I could make-out was Boise State).


    BTW here is a highlight flick for some that aren't familiar with McGuffie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4IJ17ODo_s&feature=related

    I hope the injury bug won't find McGuffie again.
    I sure do like to see what he can do in college.
    Where did he go, some school in the big ten? Michigan?

    McGuffie's final 5 were Notre Dame, Michigan, USC, A&M, and Florida (the orange and blue hat).
