    Keenan Burton

    I have been reading up on him and I have read several reports that range from him being not so fast to him being a blazer. Does anyone know how fast a 40 he ran once he fully recovered? I know he was faster in pre-season than at the combine.

    Anyone have some information on this?

    Burton ran in the 4.45 range. He's fast enough, but not the blazer that Avery is.

    But that 4.45 is deceiving. He consistently ran by people his entire college career. He's got that Isaac Bruce type speed I think ....

    I can't wait to see him involved in the game... Him and Holt outside and Avery in the slot... so much potential.... USE IT!

    Good point! Kind of reminds me of a guy we loved to hate. That guy we hated was once invited to compete in the NFL's Fastest Man Contest and was beaten like a drum. Guess what though? When he put on the pads and had a football in his hands no one could catch him ... he went on to have a pretty good career and score more than a few TDs - pretty good for a guy who ran a slow 40 when you think about it .. That guy was Jerry Rice ..

    Jerry Rice reportedly ran a 4.71 second 40-yard dash (regarded as a mediocre figure for a wide receiver).[1] He went on to play in 13 Pro Bowls, win 3 Super Bowls, and break numerous NFL receiving records NFL records (at the time of his retirement he had 28 NFL records). Said former teammate Ronnie Lott, "Jerry may have been a 4.6 or a 4.7, but he was a 4.2 on Sundays." Rice was also generally noted for being able to run as fast a 40-yard dash under the weight of heavy NFL padding as he could in track gear.

    40-yard dash - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
