It's a nice reminder that a stopwatch has never, in the history of the NFL, scored a touchdown. And it's something to keep in mind this April as the draft gets closer. As fans, we like looking at 40 times almost as much as NFL scouts and executives because they're a tangible way of attempting to understand how some players are simply better than others. But in recent years, 40 times have become somewhat deceptive, especially for certain guys. Most players these days spend months training to run the 40 after they declare for the draft, and they do so in track shoes and shorts, working on their start, their stride, and their posture. But there are huge difference between the speed of a player running in shorts while wearing track shoes and the speed of a player wearing cleats, pads and a helmet as he comes out of his break with the ball in the air.
