3.9 is really impossible, and saying he ran that is like Pacman saying he's not going to put 100 dollar bills in exotic dancers' thongs straps, its just impossible

AJ Hawk ran a 3.9 short shuttle (so have several others that don't jump to my mind).

It's definitely a big step up from 4.5.

hahaha that just reminded me of how ridiculously amazing AJ Hawk was as a prospect, and is now...i forget about him in GB, cause well, its wisconsin, but i loved him so much as a prospect...i remember hearing the saints were gunna take AJ at #2 that year if houston took bush...just ridiculous...

and as for silva, i think with teh weakness at S and several teams having a need, he has an outside shot at round 3, but is more likely a round 4/5 type guy

Yeah, I guess the 100+ NFL scouts and personnel who were present at the pro day got it wrong.

So he has less-than-average speed coupled with elite agility? A guy who's been described as "average athlete" and "tight in the hips" has one of, what, two sub-4.0 shuttle times in the draft? Sure, why not.

Silva is not a great athlete and it'll be hard for him to break round 4, in my opinion. He will get drafted because of his instincts and his production and may go on to a successful career, but I'd hardly label him a workout wonder.

i wanted to see if i could stop it right as he hit the line and i got him clocked at 3.867 clearly with his head across and foot on the line

The NFL timed him at 4.50, it's on their web site and I'll take their timing over anybody elses.

If any of you have ever ran a shuttle you would no that it is all about technique. If you partice it enough you can get a good time. For example my PE teacher in high school was the Kicker for Boise St. and he ran 3.8 and he was not an overly fast guy all technique.

A video proves nothing, the frame rate can be sped up or slowed down.

The truth is probably in between 3.9 and 4.5. And neither time changes his 4.8 in the 40.

Jamie Silva reminds me of Larry Izzo. A try hard college safety who will be a special teams mascot at the next level.
