So I found this story online todayabout how the 40 yard dash numbers you see flashed around for high school and college athletes are usually a crock of ramblers excrement (sorry rambler I am a comment whore, and I know this will illicit some type of discussion). Bottom line with this story: Florida has a board of 40 yard dash times. When looking at said board the times jump out at you.  When you look at their actual combine times you will see as much as a .20 difference in the 40. For you and I that might not seem like much, but consider how big a difference a 4.3 and a 4.5 are in terms of payout on the Al Davis scale. I thought this was an interesting read that supports the sentiments of many of us here on BSD, and it should also stand as a reminder to take those rivals, and scouts 40 times with a grain of salt.
