While 40 times are overrated the fine folks at Football Outsiders have found a way to get more use out of them. Speed Score accounts for a running back’s size when considering their 40 time. A 4.6 40 isn’t very impressive from a 196lb scatback like Jaquizz Rodgers, but from a 242lb pounder like USC’s Allen Bradford it’s cause for excitement.
The Chargers blog Bolts from the Blue has the numbers for this years’ RB class.
2011 Speed Score champ Mario Fanin is a prospect that reminds me of a bigger Joseph Addai, but unfortunately has a crippling case of fumblitis.
