4.6?

Maybe he is a bit faster today?

Probably, Texas Tech has an excellent strength coach.
He used to be assistant strength coach at the Dallas Cowboys for several years.
So I'm sure it will be better than that ... he was still a kid when he was timed.

Most schools normally put a stopwatch on their skill position players at some point, so I wonder what Texas Tech had Crabtree's 40 time at?

4.6 in High School means nothing. He's had years of a college weight training program to get stronger and faster. Plus the college's have professional trainers working with the team. Not just a high school coach who took a weekend seminar about weight training. My guess is Crabtree is faster now. Although a lot of that is genetics. Usually you can't improve nature a lot when it comes to speed. But you can a little. My guess would be like 4.50 or 4.45 at best. He is definately not a 4.40 guy or a 4.30 guy. You can see that on the tape.

Anyway 4.5 is good enough if he runs good routes and has good hands. Boldin and Fitzgerald are not fast. Jerry Rice was not fast. Michael Irvin was not fast. You can be a great NFL WR without great speed. There are other factors.
Tears in his eyes because coach is telling him not to run routes??!!

Wow, that's great. With passion like that, I'm very excited to see how he plays the game.

If he gets emotional when he can't run routes....

I wonder what will happen if we don't throw him the ball enough

I hear you, but I think that's more of an ego thing than a passion-for-the-game thing. We'll see. Reports are he's a very level-headed kid without a big ego. Of course, for his first few years with the team, TO seemed like a level-headed kid as well. Who knows?
why is everyone putting so much emphasis on his speed? Look at VD he has a great 40 time but how much has he produced. Now don't get me wrong I am not a VD hater. I am a firm believer that he has not been given the opportunities to make the plays because he is always left in to block. Good route running, ability to create seperation and great hands are what is needed to be a great WR.

Absolutely. 41 touchdowns in 2 college seasons speaks louder than any combine number.

I was thinking TO as well. One of the local booster clubs had him visit and they told me he was the shyest guy they had ever met. Embarassingly so. Some change!!

when he first started with the 49ers he was real quiet. Now teams hope that he can keep his mouth shut

didn't TO have some kind of traumatic childhood though? I'm pretty sure he has psychological problem but probably surrounds himself with YES people.

Crabtree isn't like that, TO was thrust into the spotlight and couldn't handle it ... Crabtree has always been the superstar, in HS he was a star QB, the girls at Carter would throw water on him in the halls to try and get him to take his shirt off.
He was a star BBall player too.
Then he was a superstar and national household name for college football fans for 2 years at Texas Tech, and he didn't change.

The 4-5 times I met him he was soft spoken and cool to me, even though I am a nobody, relatively speaking. So I'm not worried about that. I am more worried about his injury not healing properly.

Thanks for that info. Great news. I really don't want to see another soap opera.

No one is putting "emphasis on his speed". Majority of folks are simply "curious" what Crabtree's 40 time really is.... probablly even the 9ers, thats all.

Frankly, im curious who is our fastest and slowest WR and RB?
