My boy Josh Smith from MD Terps ran the fastest DB combine time of 4.35 seconds in the 40 yard dash. He'll be selcted in the first round, no doubt. Excellent combine workout!
That combine can make or break you! Case in point, Troy Smith of OSU. Bye bye first round selection!
It can also expose you as a workout warrior. A good combine will solidify the endless tape, and scouting a team has invested in you. It can also get you some attention a team may not have given you before the great workout.
When you get noticed, or lay down a crazy 40 time, your speed better translate into " game speed" on the tape!
