    No if I thought he could break it I'd say he can run a 4.23, but I don't, I think he has a small chance, I'm not watching the kid run everyday, I watched him a handful of times in college and think he runs a 4.25-4.35 but would not be overly surprised if its faster.

    Dri Archer came close with an official time of 4.26.

    Figured that's about where he'd land.

    He's like a CJ but with WR, returner, and RB skills.

    I'd replace CJ with him tomorrow if possible.

    He didn't break it but I totally called Dri Archer being the fastest. Kid is lighting out there. BTW using DHB as an argument for why the 40 is irrelevant is short sighted and here's why. No one has ever claimed that fast 40= great player. We all know Bey has bad hands but if you watch him play you'll notice that he gets open A LOT. Yes the lack of hands outweighs his raw speed but what people never take into account are the tons of receivers in the NFL who have good hands but can't separate from coverage because they're slower than dirt. Neither are ideal but I'd prefer a guy like DHB who can get open consistently and while inconsistent will get you some deep strikes than some slow poke who can't even get himself in a position to use his catching ability. 40's aren't everything but they matter.

    I would love to see a player in the future pull a Deion Sanders at the combine. Show up late,run the fastest 40 yard dash, and continue running right out of the building without doing any other drills. haha F8ckin classic Deion.

    Saw archer play in person when I lived in Ohio and he's a beast when healthy but he has injury problems due to him being so small. Would love the Titans to get him though
