  • Measuring Lateral Agility

    Great read guys

    there are other formula's I like to use as well.

    3-Cone * Short * 10-split / Vertical = Explosion

    Explosion / Weight = Size/Exp ratio

    40-yard - 20-split = 2nd gear

    anyone have any formula's they use?

    pretty good post, Pat Kirwin did a equation like that for on explosion as well

      Vertical and broad jumps are a pretty good measurement of explosion. Never really been concerned with times for the 3 cone and shuttle, I like to see how fluid the player looks, how well they stop, change direction, and explode through to finish.

        This is even more confirmation what a sleeper-beast Te'o-Nesheim is...insane workout numbers with the production to back it up.

          no suprise to see junior galette on top for DE's.

          i can't wait for the saints to pick him.

            Snead, McCluster, Hodge, Jerry, Marshay Green, and Kendrick Lewis are all up there for their positions..nice. Hardy is the one guy who isn't damn it.

              I still pay attention on 20 shuttle and 3 cone drill only. Lateral and straight speed are big different. Highest differential does not mean a better one. It makes you less all around player.

              Runner has 4.4 at 40 yard and 4.2 in short shuttle. Both are excellent numbers but .2 differential is bad. I dont buy it.

              Interesting math, though.

                just use a tape measure

                  This looks like a good formula, as Preston Parker plays much faster than his high 4.6 40 time.

                    I don't take much stock in a formula that penalizes for running a faster 40. According to this, Terrance Cody has more "functional football speed" than Trindon Holliday.

                      That seems like a faulty formula - you're not weighing those numbers against any fixed standard. You're comparing one variable to another variable. Basically, if you run slow forty, you're more likely to get a better number. It's a relative measurement - which means it's not really a measurement.

                      Yeah, maybe a big fat dude moves sideways compared to forwards pretty well, but he's still a slow fat dude. That tells me nothing.

                      Better measurement of agility - tell them to touch their toes. If they can't do it, they're not agile. Not a great method, but still better.
