Yeah, hand timing is way off most of the time.
In high school, I was timed at just over 4.7... I can tell you based on looking at these guys run, there's no way I run a 4.7
I was a 3 time all stater in the 100M dash in high school (Illinois). Finished 5th, 3rd, and 2nd my soph, junior, and senior year respectively. Usually ran in the 10.8 range as a junior and senior (plus or minus a tenth) when I ran meets that used electronic timing. The best electronic forty I ever ran was a 4.49. You can invariably add at LEAST a tenth, probably two tenths to the times these high school athletes are reporting. Very few are accurate. That's why its so impressive when a guy like Chris Johnson comes to the combine and runs a 4.24. I guarantee CJ would a WORLD CLASS 100M guy.
Damn, do you want to sign up for flag football on our team? We need some burners... I couldn't catch a few of the guys last week. Either 1) I'm old, or 2) I'm slow. Likely both.
The Super Regional Combine is interesting. It's the combine for leftovers. And it's in Detroit this year.
Trust me, I'm not exactly a burner any more. A car accident resulting in compound fractures of both femurs and a torn hamstring, a snowboarding accident that blew out my right ACL, MCL, and PCL, a soccer match that shredded the ankle ligs in my right foot, and yet another MCL tear while trying to do one of those idiotic spartan races has kinda sapped my speed. Now I just look back on the good old days and try not to hurt myself.
Yea, NFL network had K-mart with a 4.35 and a 4.41. I think his official was a 4.48.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Rich Eisen running 40 is the only entertaining part of the combine

He seems more explosive than 'fast' though.
I bet he had really strong 10 and 20 yard splits.
Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
at 6'8" 190lbs I ran a 5.6 40 and 17.0 100 yard dash on grass in HS. The calendar jokes ensued for years. Jud would have had lots of ways to describe it I'm sure.
Actually move pretty well it just takes me about 30 yards to get up to slow.
Our coaches were nice enough to not have them cut the grass and made us run in football pants/pads (not the shoulder pads though)
6'8 190? Is that a typo, or were you a beanpole?
It is a typo, I was 188 after an entire summer of lifting 4x a week.
314 at the Doc on Monday, but a lot of it is muscle after I've switched to doing more lifting than cardio, I was down around 275 a couple months ago.
I just seem to have dinosaur bones.

I looked like a Gerrick Sherman sans freckles plus chemo minus food, but with really wide shoulders somehow.
A bit like a giant sheet of plotter paper.
I don't think this is accurate. He may have been dinged up, but Jones was in at Nickle because that is the game Drummond got his bell rung. I was in the front row at that game and saw Kurtis walk by looking like he got hit by a train.
Keshawn's official time was 4.45, which was good enough for 11th among WRs. He also finish 2nd in the 60 yard shuttle (11.16 secs), 4th in the vert (39.5 inches), 8th in the 3 cone (6.85 secs), 10th in the 20 yard shuttle (4.13 secs), and 14th in the broad jump (10'2"). Overall Keyshawn had a helluva combine. I think he showed what we all knew; that he's an elite athlete. In addition, at 6'0" 188 lbs I think he's a little bigger than I thought he'd be. I'm guessing he solidified himself as at least a 4th round pick and might slide into the 3rd. We'll see though.

According to ChaCha, Keyshawn's time was a 4.47. Keshawn's time was 4.45
Edit: on the 6'8, 190 subject

More like a giant version of the kid from Road trip, with a normal human's face.
Maybe his agent told him not to.
And with at least one torn pec being suffered this year during the event (by Iowa tackle Markus Zusevics), agents have been complaining about the effort to get the players to squeeze out a final rep that could blow out a muscle or a tendon.
“Who cares if my guy gets 24 instead of 27 reps?” one agent told PFT. “No one has ever won a football game because of how many times a guy can lift 225 pounds with his arms.”
The easy answer is for any player who is concerned about injury to pass on the event. The better answer is to ditch the hoo-rah baloney and treat these kids like the men they’re now expected to be. No one is yelling at them to run faster in the 40-yard dash; why does someone need to try to persuade them to strain past discomfort and into the territory of injury?
For years, Cardinals strength coach John Lott has been adding a label, we need to come up with a new name for the thing).
Thank you, Denicos.
Does it hurt him that he looks like a fucking Ken Doll? I doubt it.
I wonder if he skipped the bench so it wouldn't screw up his throwing 'exhibition' ?
Or are these guys smart enough to let them throw before they lift?

"Cousins was often dinged for poor decisions during his collegiate career"
Both games @ Notre Dame I'd assume. He was just BAD decision wise in the bowl game vs Bama (obviously he was getting zero help and was without BJ). The illegal forward pass vs ND in 2010 which functionally lost the game if not for a 60 yard punt plus a flag.
Is some of what I'd assume they are going with. I don't really see that as an issue personally. I think he made the correct decision as much of the time or more of the time than you would expect a QB to. Even a very experienced one.
this is a factual statement. It just tailed off in 2011. Because of his steadiness, I'd say he's one of the 4 most NFL-ready QBs (Luck, Weeden, RGIII, Cousins in that order), but his ceiling isn't as high due to athleticism.
But what about Kirk?
