Official Thread for 40 times of NY Jets draft picks in 05'

Recommended Posts

Just to clear up any confusion as to whether some player is too slow to start in the NFL. I'm not gonna say who has been saying that, but I have seen some people claim x player is not fast enough to be an NFL starter at their position, when judging by their play on the football ball field and their time in the 40, they clearly are fast enough to play and even fast for their position!

Justin Miller: 4.42 & 4.44 (BS, this guy runs at least a 4.3, he's that fast)

Kerry Rhodes: 4.46, 4.38, 4.65 & 4.6 (varied times, but I believe he's a low 4.5 guy) http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/profile.php?pyid=5056

Andre Maddox: 4.54, 4.46 & 4.49 40 time (clearly has the speed. Erik Coleman fan a 4.6)

Cedric Houston: 4.55 & 4.61 (I think this is a very very good time for a big back. Definetly has plenty of speed to be a big time back. I believe steven jackson and cedric benson ran a 4.55-4.6)

^^^^^

buttmunch.

Curtis Martin runs a 4.7 probably right??!? :lol::lol:

jk, but proday times usually favor the player in case you didn't know. I'm sure Alex Barron really runs a 4.8 on the football field, yeah riiiiiight.

no interceptions? :shock:

daaaamn, that is pretty weird

But he played "rover", which is like the safety playing up in the box like a linebacker if I remember correctly, so that probably limits his chances at making interceptions I would guess.

I know the 40 time is overrated, but some people talk about Andre Maddox like he is some slow footed safety with limited range. Thats just not true.

How many times per game does someone sprint 40 yards? A couple? How many times do they sprint 40 yards from a starting line, with 1 hand down and the other in the air, without pads, wearing shorts and a tee shirt? NONE, right?

The number can be helpful, but it doesn't mean too much. I want my RB to have a quick burst, not necessarily be quick in the 40. I do want Safeties with speed so they can get to the sideline, that I'll agree with. However Football is a game of 10 yard bursts...

I agree 100%, but I felt it was time to squash the theory that Andre Maddox was a slow footed safety who would never start in the NFL because he's too slow. People think just because he is primarily a run stuffing safety, that it means he is slow, not true

Oh and trust me on this one,

Cedric Houston has a great burst! :wink:

I remember watching a college football game last season, tennessee was on espn or espn 2 and I had no idea who Cedric Houston was at the time and I see #21 burst through the Dline, shake off a tackle or 2, plow forward when falling down and pick up a nice 15-20 yard gain. I said to myself "damn, who the hell is that" and I found out of course and continued to watch as many tennesse games as I could when I had the spare time. The guy reminds me ALOT of LaMont Jordan really. I'm not just saying this now, I have been saying this for like 8 months.

I agree about Houston. He's a mid second round pick at worst without the health issues.

Definetly.

IMHO, he's better than ciatrick fason, darren sproles :roll:, J.J. Arrington, Eric Shelton, Frank Gore :roll::roll::roll: , Vernand Morency and even slightly better than Ryan Moats and Marion Barber.

Am I the only person in the world who thought Arizonas pick of JJ Arrington was a REACH as well as the 49ers pick of FRANK GORE was really really stupid.

Frank Gore? You have got to be kidding me right? After the 9ers made the pick in the draft, people were adoring mike nolan over it saying what a great pick that was

Frank Gore SUCKS. I watched nearly every miami game last year and he is TERRIBLE. He is soooooo slow and on top of that he is dumb as rocks. I though that pick was 1 of the biggest reaches in the draft especially considering all the other backs still available are far better. that pick just didn't make any sense at all, stupid stupid stupid pick.

yeah and he went high 2nd while Houston went in the mid 5th.

in terms of price paid, Jordan should all rights be better.

RE: this thread topic Pouha ran a 5.03 40 time which is downright spectacular for a 330 pounder.

Dressen ran about 4.65 - similar to Jolley's numbers coming out, maybe just a hair slower.

also Nugent ran around 4.7 which is a good sign for his athleticism. He's not just a kicker he's a football player.

UDFA OG Mike King ran a 4.9 at 300 pounds his pro day.
