OT ran an 40-yard dash in an unofficial time of 4.65 seconds

OT ran an 40-yard dash in an unofficial time of 4.65 seconds 


biggrin Impressive ! I wish we had that 2nd round pick....yes indeed ! Saints might be able to use one of those 3rd round picks to get Terron Armstem.


EDIT / ProfootballTalk.com

Terron Armstead ran his 40-yard dash in an unofficial time of 4.65 seconds, which is stunningly fast for a 306-pound offensive tackle. NFL Network’s Mike Mayock said he had never seen an offensive lineman finish a 40 in less than 4.7 seconds, and according to NFL.com, the Combine record for an offensive lineman before Armstead’s stunning run this morning was 4.84 seconds, set by Allen Barbre in 2007.Armstead is a freakish all-around athlete who was also an outstanding shot putter in college, but the question, of course, is whether he can translate that athleticism to playing at the NFL level. And on that score, the early indications are good: Although he didn’t play against high-quality competition at Arkansas Pine-Bluff, he was a good college player who was so impressive at the East-West Shrine Game that he got a late invitation to the Senior Bowl.

First let's see how strong he is. It seems to me that when the Saints took Brown out of Oklahoma the Rams took what's-his-face who also had a phenomenal 40 time. That tackle was supremely underwhelming as a player.

That's a crazy time for an o-lineman. eek
To put it in perspective, Anquan Boldin ran a 4.72. Jerrry Rice ran 4.71.

Speaking of 40 times, I'd like to know who compiles some of those bios on the NFL site. Looks like Ryan Swope ran a 4.34, one of the fastest times so far. But in his bio:

"Weaknesses
His height, straight-line speed and acceleration are only average, limiting him to a slot or number three receiver role at the next level. Doesn’t have the elite athleticism to elude NFL-caliber defenders in space, and his strength is not enough to run through pro linebackers and defensive backs in the second level."
