James had a better 40 time than 4.45 didn't he? maybe pro day or something.

plus 3

I wonder if they want to use him like Sproles? James will likely be our fastest RB, so will likely be used in the slot, and similar to how New Orleans used Bush and Sproles. How is James 40 times? What caused him to drop so much prior to the draft?
We have a LJames thread, don't make a new thread to compare or discuss him

LaMichael James looks a LOT faster than 4.45 on videos. He is one of the quickest guys I have ever seen.
It is impossible to predict what the 49er front office will do next. Only thing you can say is that it is probably a good thing whatever they do.... lol

In pads, dude is on a different level than everyone else. This is why naked 40 times really mean nothing.

I'm impressed by his constant production, year after year. Proves he's durable.
I love competition....

Both Anthony Dixon and Brandon Jacobs, you are now on notice. Bring it, or go home!

ya kno, he's not somebody I wanted but im kinda happy we have him. Really wanted Turbin though. Lookin forward to seein what Hunter/James does in the years to come

I agree, you stole the words right out of my mouth. I was hoping to see an every down back with good hands...Turbin. I though Turbin would be there in the 3rd, and here we could have gone best available, or D-line for depth. I do like the idea of James as a slot receiver/3rd down back/punt returner, but is seems kinda high spot to pick the guy. I live in Oregon, and was stoked to see JH run the "fly sweep" a play every Oregon high school runs, Ginn ran it pretty well. JH saw this play run at him over and over by Oregen, and it was sally James how ran it...I got a feeling we are going to see more fly sweep this season!

I just have to keep reminding myself we don't suck anymore, and we don't pick low in the draft, and we don't have many needs, we really are good enough that we are drafting back-ups not starters!

I thought it was 4.35...

Quickness and speed aren't exactly the same thing. But there is such a thing as 'football speed". It's how fast you are on the field with pads and cleats.

Jerry Rice had a pretty mediocre 40 time (4.7 I believe, which would probably drop him from most draft boards today), but he has excellent football speed. If James had a poor outing at the combine and ran some bad sprints, it doesn't take aay how fast he is on the field.

He seems to have a really quick first step and cutback step. He changes direction really fast.
They can use the triple option with Kaep, Hunter, L. James, and maybe Miller... What redzone problem!

I can't believe you like this pick.
