I dont know what there forty time was but I would guess Santana Moss and Randel El would be up there.

toonsterwu 03-11-2007 11:14 AM

It comes down to what you are talking about -straight line, or football speed. In terms of football speed, Chad Jackson could use areas of improvement, although he is young and that potential is there.

Btw, the Dynasty, Randle El, I believe, had a 4.5ish 40 time, but what he has is excellent quickness.

Sizzling Stallworth makes the rounds
By Steve Cohen
Special to NFL.com


(April 16, 2002) -- Faster than a speeding bullet; more powerful than a locomotive; able to leap ... maybe we're getting ahead of ourselves here, but as teams prepare for the NFL Draft, they'll be hard pressed to find a player who possesses the rare combination of power and speed that wide receiver Donte' Stallworth boasts.

During his Pro Day workout at the University of Tennessee, scouts were ready to hang an "S" on his chest after clocking him in the 40-yard dash.

"The Chiefs had me in at 4.18 and mostly, I think the range was 4.18 to 4.26 but I'll go ahead and take that 4.18," Stallworth told NFL.com.

show me a link where it says stallworth ran a 4.18

hugepunch 03-11-2007 11:17 AM

yea at a pro day...i dont believe that for a second. deon sanders cant run that fast.

toonsterwu 03-11-2007 11:17 AM

briz5x - that was at a pro day. Most teams use an adjustment factor to pro day times. Sure, they are "valid", but depending on the conditions, adjustments factors are considered. I don't remember Tennessee's workout conditions, so I can't say for certain. That being said, while digging up Randle El's 40 time (cnnsi - just googled cnnsi 2002 nfl draft, too lazy to open another window to get the link), I saw Stallworth's listed time there, which was 4.32, which would, in terms of straight line speed, still probably make Stallworth/Jackson as the fastest tandem. (btw, Randle El was listed at 4.55).

Post above. I guess if Stallworth really ran a 4.1 than him and Jackson are the fastest tandem. Damn Patriots.

^ those list Stallworth at 4.48.

briz5x 03-11-2007 11:22 AM

well i mean Ginn was only gunna run at his Pro Day so his 40 time wouldnt count because it was a Pro Day?

No one is saying it doesn't count. What I'm saying is that, most teams adjust the pro day 40 times, depending on the conditions. In some cases (although very few), the time may even be decreased if the conditions were that poor.

4.1 is inaccurate..4.26-4.28 is more like it

Stallworth measured 6-foot, 198 pounds. He had a 39-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot, 11-inch long jump did 17 strength reps. Ran once on a very fast track at Tennessee the lowest watch of five people we talked to was 4.19 and the highest was 4.28. Median was 4.24. In my opinion, his performance vaulted him into a top-10 pick.

The Patriots have everything!!!!!

JRTPlaya21 03-11-2007 11:31 AM

Deion ran a 4.19 and supposedly D-Hall ran a 4.15 on an indoor track. Any sort of time like that is highly unlikely.

The fastest time officially recorded by the NFL was 4.29 seconds by Deion Sanders in 1989 , although the NFL did not begin electronic timing until 1990.

remix 6 03-11-2007 11:34 AM

also throw in Caldwell who ran a "4.3" but he doesnt seem like it on the field

CM4 03-11-2007 11:37 AM

why do idiots believe these stupid handtimes.... Stallworth ran 4.3s at combine... Stallworth doesnt run 4.18, please that is a joke.

UTPATS 03-11-2007 11:38 AM

I think T.O. and Terry Glenn tandom would be pretty fast. I know Glenn was clocked at around 4.19, but T.O. was around a 4.6 coming out. Glenn might be able to run a 4.19 anymore, but I know TO can run a lot faster than a 4.6 now. I wonder what he ran in pads to catch Julius Jones against NO?

Eaglez.Fan 03-11-2007 11:42 AM

Yes but will Chad Jackson even start. This should be the fastest starting WR's. If were doing it like that then the eagles have Bethel Johnson and had Justin Gatlin. Noone is faster then them. And Greg Lewis is fast.

But as of starters I'd say Washington has the fastest, possibly the Jets

remix 6 03-11-2007 11:42 AM

if Bucs get Calvin Johnson it could be them withj Galloway there too
