    As a whole, the NFL is faster... at every position. They took the best/fastest college players and put them all in one league. Just by default, the NFL is faster.

    Yes does it not seem serious? It is boring, and looks slow to me. Should be very easy to comprehend.

    Lamichael James has put on 10 pounds since being in the NFL, and now looks way slower than what he was.

    I get it, people are on the same playing field. To me it seems they beef players up for Big 10 style football, since that is what the NFL looked like for years. Now since the spread is being utilized (Denver) they're burning teams left and right. So there is something about the NFL that makes it slower.

    James ran a 4.2 at his pro day. Now are you telling me all pro players run a 4.2? That's impossible and not likely. I can say by watching him now, he runs nowhere near a 4.2.

    The cars in the Indy 500 don't look too fast either! The old theory of relativity...

    Because the defense is faster too dude. Can you not comprehend that. Not complicated.

    Good point. I mean, the WRs, corners, safeties, LBs, OL and DLmen tend to be faster in the NFL, but James is way slower.

    Ok dude, what do you not comprehend about defensive players not all running a 4.2-4.3. I understand everything everyone has said it is you all making it seem complicated. To me "it is" slower, that's my opinion nothing anyone says will change that. And Indy 500 is boring, as is all race car competitions, I'd rather jump off a cliff than watch that, but I do know one thing. They're all fast. Jackson from the Eagles runs a 4.2 and to this day he is still burning all corners who cover him, and defenses in general. My personal opinion is guys go to the league, add bulk, weight, mass (I think that should be clear enough for you all), and then lose some speed, but being bigger makes it ok to watch because the hits are good. Michael Vick can still burn defenses, as can Russell Wilson, and RG3 (before they stopped letting him scramble) if the defenses were all as fast, faster, or even why do they still get burned? RG3 made NFL defenses look like he was on Baylor playing the Big 12 last year. This is only what I think, I'm not saying it's a "fact" like you dramatic drama queens think I am, I personally believe the NFL is slow.

    When I fly on a plane I can't even see people, so you must have some sort of eagle vision.

    You cannot say the sky is purple and call those that say, no it's blue, drama queens. The nfl is not slow. It may look that way, as does the Indy 500.

    Yeah but when you fly over an NFL stadium the people on the field look like bigger, faster ants.

    NFL defenses play much faster than college defenses, because they are both physically faster, longer and more explosive (the most elite college athletes) and mentally faster (much more film study and reps).

    I could see him playing that 3rd down H-Back role that the Patriots use all the time. He reads zones really well, is a good blocker, and has good vision.

    i hope he does but i don't think he is fast enough for his size in the NFL. he does most things good which may earn him a roster spot but doesn't do anything great to make him standout. trey is a great gator and has done a really good job this year, iv been very impressed with him as a receiver in the slot this year. just don't know if he'l cut it in the nfl

    Reminds me of Hines Ward. Similar college career (in that they both played a variety of positions- Ward lined up as WR, RB, QB before his career was over at UGA).

    Probably not as athletically gifted as Ward, but football IQ and versatility will see him playing on Sundays. If he follows suit, that will make him a receiver at the next level.

    In Christ forever,
