Watch NFL network, the football people on the show all go 'wow' when say a Poe runs a sub 5.0, they hardly mention the short shuttle or cones timing. I'm not saying it isn't important but believe me a 40 time at any position carries a lot of weight in NFLer's eyes.

The reason is simple, NFL scouts and GM's can see on film, the footwork of a prospect, they can see his hip action but they cannot tell on film how fast a prospect really is, that is why a Kendall Wright can shock scouts and GM's with a slow 40 time.

The people on NFL Network who are actually qualified to comment on what drills mean (mainly Charlie Casserly) are not the people who go "wow" when a guy runs fast. I mean NFLN's draft honcho is Mayock, who's one of the most vehement "anti-numbers" people in the draftnik business

Plus, I mean, they never show you Poe running the cone or the shuttle, so of course they don't gush over it. The 40 is the the thing the analysts talk about because the 40 is the thing they put on the TV and the analysts are there to entertain.

It's also one of Mayock's faults. He loved Black last year from Florida and Kendrick Burney fron UNC even though he knew they were small and slow. He had them rated MUCH higher than they were drafted and they won't be around i nthe NFL for long. The 40 is the ultimate athletic measurement that NFL Scouts use. It's a fact even if you don't want to accept it.

Think Burfict didn't drop like a lead balloon because of his 40?

only reason they ohhh is for viewers. Its kind of turned into a circus, at least before they showed the shuttle and 3 cone but they don't do that since its not obvious to the average fan, and not zomg.
