Vernon was the fastes TE. they singed Jones a 4.4 Wr last year so they have some speed I think they don't have an Quick fast player. there is a difference in being quick and being fast. pluse look at the Raiders they have all kinds of speed.
I am certainly not advocating that we become the Raiders.

First time I read this statement, this was the look on my face:
Patrick Willis is the exception!!!! Which other ILB runs 4.3
Scots response is a smoke screen. See last year when Scot said we would pick a 220+ lb RB and ended up with a 209 lb Glen Coffee
Willis ran a 4.49 at the combine. Fast but not what you are quoting. Running on a super fast, super springy rubber track at his home university on his pro day doesn't count. It's not an equal surface with the Indy combine surface. Fast yes but 4.49.
