Can you think of any players more physically gifted at their respective postions?
Willis is an outstanding athlete but he ran between 4.49 - 4.51 at the scouting combine in Indy. He's a tremendous athlete but not quite in the Mays or Vernon Davis category. That's not to say he isn't a great athlete or that he doesn't have great instincts for the game. He is all those things.
i forgot where i watched it or read it, but willis said he did a false start, so he got really scared and conscious not to mess up, so he did way slower then he actually could during the combine.
