    "Hawk was clocked at 4.49 and 4.42 in the 40."

    A fast track but still impressive. Does this move him up?

    to where?

    San Fran should take him at 6.

    Theoretically he could be taken by all top 6 teams, but i dont think one of those will take him with the chance of getting a good LB in the second.

    A 4.42 is absurd for a LB of his size. I knew he was fast, but damn.

    That has to be totally false. He ran a 4.6 at the combine, and now a 4.4 at the pro day? I'm sorry but you don't get faster by 2 tenths of a second faster after what? 2 weeks?

    NFL timings are wrong as is (most NFL stars would by olympic gold medallists) but to lose .2 and nothing said?

    A great case to force players to run at the Combine or not at all.

    I think Troy Flemming ran a 4.6 at the combine and then a 4.47 at the UT PD. Lots of these places have "fast tracks" for their players to run on. It is impressive that he's running similar times to DB's and WR's, but it's also not an exact science anyway with a stopwatch.

    They didn't list his weight, and it's possable he's lost some and running a little faster.

    I'm not surprised. The timing on these drills consist of a guy holding a stopwatch, there's no automatic electronic clock for the most part (I can't rule out that some places use them, but I have my doubts). For a guy holding a stopclock to be a little slow on the start and a little fast on the finish easily makes up .2 of a second. The link below is a really good read on why you shouldn't put too much stock in the 40 times.

    Reading your post has me wondering why they don't just make it all electronic.

    If the 40 was that important to these NFL teams, you'd think they would go to great efforts to standardize it. They'd make all run on the same turf. It would be electronically timed.
