In all honesty tho, 40 times are overrated for RBs. Sure they should be within a certain range, but how often are you actually in the open field. You need to have that next gear but initial burst, vision, start/stop and cutting ability are super important too
They’re overrated for all positions, honestly. AJ Brown was knocked down to 2nd round because of his 40 time. It doesn’t occur to NFL personnel that the weight of pads/gear slows players down some and big guys like Brown are slowed less by weight than smaller guys. Maybe they should watch how well they play football instead.
