    Posted 4.47 40 3rd fastest of the Running Backs. He also was a top performer in 3 cone and bench press. I always thought the guy had speed....nice job Jordan!

    Yea he had a solid combine. Didn't really look to great in the agility department according to the RAS statistics.

    Damn. I ran that in high school and I was considered too slow for major college ball - even back then.

    He didn’t have great luck with the way things turned out with the coaches, OL performance, etc over his time here. It didn’t help that Perine, who is not as fast, has better vision and is just a more natural runner.

    I believe a guy named Joe Haden ran a 4.67 - 40 at the combine and went on to be a Pro Bowler and had a great career.

    The Combine is important... I understand why they do it ...there is some merit for it... but it doesn’t guarantee anything... And there are 100’s of examples of why. Let’s wait to see how it plays out.

    Never looked slow crashing into and running over players. For 5 yards at a time it seems like speed is not so important.

    Running behind a 5 star line can mask some concerns as well

    Seemed like everyone at uga that could get out, did. Something not right in Shartville.

    He won't have the overall mass to do that at the next level, not for long...

    Holyfield has one of the top bench presses for a Rb though.

    Agree, he wasn't exactly a workhorse at UGA. Most carries he had in a game was 20 and that was against UF, for a whopping 3.6 ypc. 100 yards twice, Tennessee state and UK. He looks the part, but he never worried me like Swift.

    Why not? Most players start to get their real man strength after 20-22 so I could see him taking another step up. Odd that there are DEs and OL with his “speed” no doubt.
