Not too long at all. Good info here. Interested to see where all our guys go but Fera has to be at least the second best kicker in the draft behind Chris Boswell.

 

Fera was nails this season - drastically different from his first season with Texas.

We have put alot of DE/OLBs and DBs into the league recently.

 

This list pretty much lines up with what I would have guessed before I looked it up.

Good story

 

Just how small is the hometown of rising NFL prospect Tyler Starr?

 

"I think I can name everybody and the street they live on in town," said the University of South Dakota linebacker.

 

For the record, the population in Starr's hometown is 459. But the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year has put Little Rock, Iowa, on the NFL scouting map. An impressive showing last month at the East-West Shrine Game helped get the 6-foot-4¼, 250-pound linebacker a spot at next week's NFL combine in Indianapolis.

 

"I like him a lot," said one NFL scout. "He's tall, long and extremely athletic and plays with a high motor. I'd heard some chatter about him this fall and went to see him, and he's way more athletic than I thought he'd be. You still wonder if he has enough power and strength at the point of attack right now to be an every-down guy, but he really has a knack for rushing the passer and he has some real third-down value."

 

2014 DRAFT

Prospect Rankings: Tyler Starr No. 23 among OLBs

Word is, Starr should turn heads at the combine, not just for the long blonde hair that he hasn't cut since his freshman year at USD. Starr says he hass clocked a three-cone drill time of 6.29 in his training sessions in Tennessee. For comparison's sake, the fastest time in Indy last year was 6.52 by cornerback Will Davis from Utah. Oregon WR Jeff Maehl clocked a 6.42 in 2011, which the NFL considers its recent best. The fastest time by a linebacker last year was 6.71 by Mizzou's Zavier Gooden.

How fast did Jamaal Charles run?

 

 

4.38

 

But when asked recently whether Johnson is faster than Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles ― who ran a 4.38 in 2008 ― Titans safety and former Chief Bernard Pollard had a harder time making a choice than you might think.

 

“That’s hard, because if you go off of 40s, everybody knows that Chris (Johnson) had the faster 40,” said Pollard, who was Charles' teammate in 2008. “But if you’re talking about game speed, somebody who can just cut it up, I’ve seen them both put it on.”

How fast did Jamaal Charles run?

 

 

I stumbled upon this article about 40-times- worth a look http://www.gridironstuds.com/blog/the-fastest-40-yard-dash-ever/

 

 

The fastest recorded 40 yard split on record belongs to Olympian Maurice Greene. During his World Record 60 meter run of 6.33, a mark that still exists, Green crossed the 40 yard mark at 4.18. Remembering that .25 seconds must be subtracted from that time due to Accu-track timing and you come up with a 40 yard dash time of 3.93 seconds. What’s the problem with that time? It was run on an indoor track with spikes on giving the runner an advantage over the football players who have run on grass with cleats.

 

In an effort to centralize all the reported 40 yard dash times. I will start what we call the SUB 4.3 Club. I will attempt to keep a running record of the sub 4.3 forty yard dashes and their owners in this list. I will refrain from adding times of the ridiculous and will do some research on all times that qualify. I will say one thing, can you web surfers stop reporting that Deion Sanders ran a 4.57 forty yard dash backwards. That’s just flat out ridiculous.

 

Enjoy the following list of reported (and somewhat believable) 40 yard dashes run under 4.3 seconds. We will continue to add on to this list over time. Did I miss someone? Comment on this article and make your case. Please do not quote high school forty yard dash times. Nothing against them, let’s just stick to college and pro football right now.

Only 1, Chris Johnson, has made a significant impact in the NFL. There's track speed and there's game speed.

 

 

Since 2009, 15 WRs have run a sub-4.40 40-yd dash.
