Justin Hunter. Pegged by NFL Network's Mike Mayock as the top sleeper
receiver in this year's draft, Rogers ran forty times of 4.49 and 4.50
at the Vols' Pro Day. Apr 28 - 12:57 AM

For 182lb NFL WR, yes.

 

If he's running a route untouched I fail to see how his weight factors into how fast he is.  Durability questions? Maybe affected.  Ability to break tackles? Maybe affected.  Means he runs slow? No.

 

 

Antonio Brown at 186 lbs ran the same 4.50 in the 40.

 

He'll either suck or he won't.  But 4.49 isn't slow.

All I know is my two favorite Jets of all time are Chrebet and Victor Green. Players can be found undrafted. Devito, Brandon Moore are two recent starters for us. Moore played at a high level at RG for quite a few seasons.

It is not 4.3 either.  ;)

 

It is funny how the NFL gets wrapped up in measurables players show running in shorts and not what they see on the field.

Everyone who doesn't run a 4.3 isn't slow.  And to your point, Amendola and Kerley - also both around 185 lbs give or take - played only as fast as their 40 times (4.63 and 4.59 respectively), neither one would be of any use.

 

This kid will either be decent or he won't.  But if he isn't it won't be because of his friggin' 4.49 second 40 time.

Leon Sandcastle says he can run 4.49 backpedaling

I just don't think people realize just how fast 4.3 really is.  People that run 4.4s and 4.5s are still absolutely incredibly fast; maybe just not compared to guys like trindon holliday or combine chris johnson etc. 

 

Pretty sure Randall Cobb ran a 4.5 or close to it and I hardly would think anyone would call him slow.

"A talent like Leon doesn't come around very often," says Matt Mirchin, senior vice president of global brand and sports marketing at Under Armour. "Leon is the type of athlete we can't pass up because he plays the game with the experience of someone twice his age, and his trademark Afro and mustache look great on a graphic T-shirt."

 

 

We should have drafted this guy.

Amen to that. How many guys are elite at the combine and yet suck once the ball is snapped. Ghoulston and lam jones and D-rob and a host of other players throughout the league get over drafted when the real football players drop like rocks because they have a mediocre combine. So freaking silly. Right up there with judging an offensive line based on metrics or a QB based on 40 time and bench presses.
