    Ehh... the 40 is an overrated metric considering they aren't wearing full pads when running.

    So because he isn't wearing pads a 300 lb man running a 4.7 isn't impressive? It the 40 is overrated, why is the NFL having them run it?

    I'm with you and count me in as very impressed. That is an amazing time for a man that big.

    A big difference between track speed and football speed. The 10 yard splits are more telling for a lineman along with the agility drills.

    Exactly! But it did help him with a couple more million. I'm sure it turned heads.

    Warmack won't be used on a fumble rooskie. He just broke off a 5.5

    I do agree - but at the same time, impressive athleticism.

    One the talking heads said that this combine will be the last time Warmack is asked to run a 40. 40 times just don't matter for OL.

    From twitter:

    "The final 30 yards for o-linemen are pointless. A guy like Chance Warmack should stop at 15 and hand out DVDs of his games."

    The 40 time was originated as a metric by Paul Brown as a measure of seeing how quickly a player could get down field for punt/kickoff coverage. Not many people can explain why in the age of real special teams that linemen, and for that matter most QBs would ever need to be evaluated for coverage.
