A 4.4 40? LOL. Come on man. That said, nobody should be hating! Some of this is just a reflection of the other guys around him as well and we should keep that in mind. We can ignore any negatives we want b/c we like him but it's not a reality on the field, esp. last year. I like how Fangio is playing him now though! We'll get better results this way IMHO.
That's what he ran at the combine. His vertical jump was also 40 inches according to NFLDraftScout.com.
You must admit that 28 is not old, at least.
I think Reid is a better athlete, though. He had an 11'2'' broad jump. That's elite explosive power. Probably why he hits so hard.
