this article says Hester ran a 4.27
http://www.suntimes.com/sports/couch...greg13.article

4.27 also
http://www.usatoday.com/sports/footb...er-cover_x.htm

4.27 as well
http://cbs4.com/sports/University.Of....2.396326.html

so it looks like he ran a 4.27 at Miami's "Timing Day" after disappointing at the combine

he ran a 4.41 indoor and a 4.27 outdoor, so take it fwiw

Not usually. But the idea of it is stupid. NOBODY runs in the 4.2s except Olympic Sprinters and prospects on NCAA and Madden.

And not even them. I think I read an article that when Ben Johnson, all doped up on steroids, ran his 9.79 100m in 1988 they broke down his run and his 40 yards dash was 4.35 electronically timed.

People always forget to add the .2 sec for hand timed 40's, but it's all relative anyway since a guy running a 4.4 hand timed is still going to be .2 seconds faster then a guy running a 4.6 since they take in the same correction factor.

Except Hester, who once ran a 3.68 on a track of spun gold. Backward.

Last time he was officially timed was when he was 40 years old and ran a 4.2 flat.

Olympic sprinters will pull away from football players after that first 40 yards.....I guarantee you that. Maintaining that speed over distance is what seperates high level sprinters from other athletes such as football players/bball players.

Devin Hester isn't amazingly fast. His quicks, acceleration and vision are unreal though. Those should be his 100 ratings in Madden btw.

Antonio Cromartie would be the fastest I bet. His straight line speed is unreal, when he gets a pick and has some real estate he is just so much faster than everyone else on the field its unreal.

Honestly when your trying to argue anywhere from 4.2-4.4 its not that big of a difference to make a big deal over, you might be faster but I guarantee that 4.4 guy can stay within arm distance, people never talk about pro shuttle times on here and thats probably the most important...The guys who can start and stop, and get back to top end speed the fastest always look like their playing faster on the field then they time.
