    The NFL seems to be impressed with this fast lineman:

    Wow! That is very impressive for a lineman. 40 times are used at all levels of the game. When we condition during summer I never have players in pads. 1. That is against AHSAA rules. 2. You are working on cardiovascular health and endurance. 40 times are good indicators for both. It is also a good measuring stick on which players try to improve. Goal setting

    Why must every stat be dissected? The poster passed along a stat for what we can all agree is a fast time for someone of that size.

    This ^ ... gives new meaning to bigger, stronger, faster. Whether or not this really means anything as to whether he is a top tier lineman, that it a top tier athletic feat. Just being able to get off and accelerate that much mass that quickly (even its a 40 and not a 20) has to be some kind of meaningful measure.

    Isn't dissecting every little stat and measurable the entire point of the NFL Combine?

    My apologies for not being one to get all excited about 40 times.

    It just gets old that each time someone posts a remarkable measurable that the peanut gallery shows up to debate the need or lack of need for that particular measurable.

    That logic can be used for the bulk of the posts on this board and all other boards across the internet.

    I know what you're saying, but this is a football board. Why wouldn't we dissect things about the NFL combine and why wouldn't people present their opinion on the results?

    A large man ran real fast in a straight line. I commented because there are other more important factors to consider when judging the position of an offensive lineman.

    It's the same as people getting all worked up about quarterbacks who can throw the ball 60+ yards while they are sitting down. My usual response to that is, "Show me a game situation where that would be applicable."

    Note that this thread isn't the combine thread. It's a thread about a large man running fast in a straight line.

    Fair enough, but that doesn't mean everyone contributing to this thread has to fawn over the feat.

    A man that size running that fast in a straight line is impressive. We'll see how good of a lineman he is; nobodys saying that his 40 time has anything to do with that....but that doesnt mean that it isnt fast for the size.
