Nope. Only fastest 40 times and the kind of stuff, not a list of 40 times for everyone.

I doubt there is a website. I haven't been able to find anything. You may have to do it individually. Any particular reason for this?

It seems to be working when I look them up individually, thanks. How the heck did dwight freeney run a 4.38 and 6'1 270?? He does not look that fast.

Thing is once these guys get to the NFL for the most part they arent going to run 40 yd dashes.

Ahman Green ran a 4.19. Take that for what it's worth.

This is the internet buddy, sardonic images are the norm. I doubt he is going out of his way to be dickish.

Apparently Chris Johnson only runs 27 yards. Once he hits the top speed, he jumps hyperspace and goes the other 12.

1 yard gets lost in the space/time continuum.

But in order to do that he would have to hit 68 miles per hour in 27 yards...by god man. Or else it would lead to a rip in teh space time continuum.

Well, WR's and RB's on offense will, and CB's and LB's might also. The thing about the 40 time is that it generally indicates whether you are very quick off the mark or slow. To run a fast 40, you need an exceptional start to get a good time in that short a distance. So the 40 yard dash not only measures your straight ahead spead, it also is a very solid indicator that you are exceptionally quick off the mark which is extremely important for every position. So the 40 is used by pro scouts to indicate your overall speed and your overall quickness off the mark. You still have to show on film that you can utilize these traits in an actual football game and that you have other abilities to go along with these skills to be a successful player at the NFL level.

The difference isn't 4 seconds, it is 4/100's of a second difference.

Dwight ran that time at a weight of 248 pounds after his senior year at Syracuse. He sacked Vick like 5 times in a game against Va Tech.

4 of these players were picked by the Raiders in the 1st round, one in the 4th.

Carlos Francis also was a Raider and Stanford Routt was a 2nd rounder. Thats 6/29 by 1 team. Nothing we didnt know, but when you have a number like this it strikes you even more.

Somehow it would have been great if Al took it to the extreme and punked everybody by picking Chris Johnson 4th overall. I bet he would not be as useless as McFadden!

The problem is not as much obsession with speed then failing to do a complete evaluation of the player. Then you ask a guy like Heyward-Bey who is light years from being a quality starter to fill the role of Randy Moss.

This league is designed to be fair and competitive. Its like Bill Belichick said: you can basicaly go with the flow and be average every year. To be a really bad team you need to accumulate a big number of bad management decisions over a long period of time. Thats exactly what the Raiders have been doing since 2002.

That is amazing, over 20% of that list.

I also find it funny that there are only 3 guys on that list that I would consider elite players, the vast majority are nobodies. Perhaps it is a symptom of so many being able to just run past everyone that they never learned the technique required when you can no longer do that. There are several good players on the list, but the vast majority are not even starters.

I also find it funny that there are just 3 running backs on the list and that 2 of them are in the top 5.
