Thread: RBs burst speed
RBs burst speed
I was reviewing the RB position and don't know how much this has been covered on Clan Rams.
Daryl Richardson 10 yard dash speed was fastest in the 2012 draft
Terrance Ganaway 10 yard dash speed was second fastest in the 2012 draft
Zac Stacy 20 yard shuttle second fastest in the draft (they didn't tell us 10x).
Pead as far as I can tell never ran a reported 10x or 20 shuttle time. Looking at his highlights, the burst is what is most obvious so I'm guessing it's superior.
They don't all have great 40x times and in fact Zac Stacy's and Ganaway's 40x were considered negatives. Just guessing here but I'm going to project this type of targeting can't be a coincidence.
Re: RBs burst speed
I would say initial burst is more important overall than 40 speed. Initial burst can get you to the second level. Once you are at the second level, you can get the yards, but if you can't get there, it doesn't matter what your straight line speed is.
