I'm not really up to date on all the "average" 40 times

for each position so I wonder how he stacks up.

Regardless I still don't see why people obsess over the 40 time, and I know that it is a test of explosiveness and all that. Rarely ever will a player just run a straight line in a football game.

Especially with man coverage where the receiver is jammed at the line. Even on break away plays like Sammy had on some screens he is already moving so the 40 still isn't an accurate measure of how fast he would be moving when he catches the ball in space.

I'd be more interested in a drill they could do that would somehow measure explosiveness out of breaks and things like that.
