    In a water cooler conversation the other day, the topic rolled around to guys who make a huge leap after the Combine or a Pro Day because of a 40 time. We were trying to name those players who were drafted higher because of their workout and see if it somehow played out in their NFL careers.

    I remembered Dante Stallworth shooting up after a big 40 and he's not been close living up to expecations so far. Any other workout warriors anyone else remembers?

    the only time I think 40 times matter is with LB and S

    also, S>>L>>O>>W>> 40 times can kill RB's / WR's

    No, look at Maurice Clarett his 40 time propelled him....:brow:

    Although looking at Anquan Boldin and Jerry Rice 40 times for WRs shouldnt be too much of an issue.

    I thought Lelie was having a pretty good career in Denver. He should be their number one wr this year right? Has he really played bad enough to be on this list?
