He goes out there and goes under 4.5 and he'll be a 1st round pick. Then the rest is up to him.
i'm not disagreeing with you here, Brian. you're absolutely correct, but it is just ridiculous that there is as much film on Williams, going against top-level CFB talent, and consistently beating them, yet his 1st round status probably rests on how well he runs in a straight line, in a controlled environment. Something he will NEVER do in a football game!
it's really no different than when KW was thought to have fallen out of the 1st round when he ran a 4.6, or whatever it was, at the combine.
Scouting has become lazy and far too dependent on technology instead of actual evaluation.
But that same technology will help Tevin Reese it he turns a 4.31.
i'm not saying that it shouldn't "help" or "hurt". it should come into play because it is a tangilble thing. my issue is that TOO MUCH stock is put into stuff like 40 times. Reese will have 4 years worth of film, against Big 12 competition, for scouts to review. that should weigh more heavily than his 40 time, but it won't.
it's just like in baseball, where scouts get so wrapped up in radar guns, stop-watches, pop times, etc. watch the damn games, and they'll tell you so much more than you can learn from all of the other stuff.
unanimous All-American joining:
Bill Glass (56)
Mike Singletary (80)
Thomas Everett (86)
Santana Dotson (91)
Daniel Sepulveda (06)- back when the punter actually got work in each game...
Congrats to TWill
Baylor senior wide receiver Terrance Williams was named a first-team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America on Friday, marking his 10th first-team All-America honor of the season. The selection makes Williams Baylor's sixth all-time unanimous All-American.
Huge considering RGIII didn't get it last year, nor Kendall Wright.
