At 5'11, 220lbs, Ben Tate of Auburn ran a 4.43 (3rd best), 225 lbs x 26 reps (best), 40.5" vertical leap (2nd best). This guy is a locomotive and can be drafted in the 3rd or 4th round.

Tate is a very good football player, but he's never been an overly explosive or "big"play" type of back regardless of his combine 40 time. Again, not saying he's a bum because he's far from it...but he doesn't have the history of being explosive.
