Nah, he's only been clocked at 4.37 and 4.43 on his 40 times and he's a 100 meter state champion in track and field.

Not that fast at all.

Lol no need to be an ass. Just seems that way from your video. Maybe he's just one of those guys who runs way faster than it looks like they're moving. Prolly does have a very powerful stride that gives him an edge with those long ass legs.

I couldn't give much of a shit about your numbers either other than he's capable of doing so in street clothes, which is still very badass. Football speed is very different and sometimes pure speed doesn't translate to a fulltime job as an NFL WR. Not every burner in the world can burn NFL secondaries but he does seem like a nasty football player.

Very impressive for a high school WR. We'll have to wait and see what happens with him. With that kinda size this young he could end up getting placed at TE by the time he is NFL eligible.

He should do numbers at Mizzou.

Yes he was, but Megatron has the size over Moss.

Moss character issues may have had him slip in the draft. But his off the field problems didnt make him run a slow 40 time, decrease his vertical leap, makes his hands unreliable nor make his size smaller.

Rivals had this kid as the #1 prospect in his class for some time. Kids usually move up and down but he held steady. Should be a beast. Broke all kinds of HS receiving records.

Default Re: Never thought I'd see a better prospect than Calvin Johnson.

He was supposed to be coming to Arkansas, too. Obviously there's no way to know this with 100% certainty, but all the way up until the night before NSD Arkansas coaches had been told and thought he would announce he was coming to Arkansas the morning of NSD. They get up the next morning, tune into ESPNU, and see him put on the Mizzou cap and they have no idea what happened. Apparently he changed his mind sometime that morning or late the night before. At the time it looked like a stupid decision because Mizou is, well, Mizzou, and we had Petrino and his offense would'e been perfect for DGB.

Anyway, I've hard and read all the same things Carbine is saying so he's not far off base. I'm awful at judging football prospects, though, so I rely don't know how he compares to Calvin Johnson. But, those of you saying Carbine is wrong or stupid, he's not the only making this comparison; far from it actually.
