but it only matters to people like jeffery or sanu those people that have speed concerns coming out
every scouting report shows that wright has elite speed and athlethicisim and it shows when you watch this guy in games therfore 40 for him doesnt matter
the 40 in draft is very dependent on track form which a bad form could easily add ,2 seconds to your time
The bad form is a theory, to my knowledge I haven't seen any breakdown of the film of him running a 40 showing the bad form.
Edit: I'm sure people can disagree with my ranking of the 09 draft class of WRs. Hopefully that doesn't derail conversation as that wasn't my point. Feel free to rank them as you want, but notice what produces in the NFL and what kind of combines they had (and yes I looked at more then 40, espicially with guys that ran in low 4.5s).
All you need to do is have seen the games of Kendall Wright and known the DBs he scorched all over the field. If you haven't seen the games, you can still research the DBs and compare their spring practice 40 times. Wright's "official" 40 time is not an indicator of how fast he is. The unofficial time was a far more accurate time I felt.
Javon Harris, CB/FS for Oklahoma runs an estimated 4.49 -- If you saw Baylor vs. OU, Harris looks like a 4.7 guy running behind Wright as he attempts to chase him down on what was something like an 80+ yard TD reception.
Wright may not be a 4.3 guy but I think he's a 4.45-4.54 guy at the worst.
