Yamon Figurs ran a blistering 4.30 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine before being selected by the Ravens in the third round of last year's draft. Figurs' passion for speed reached new limits during the offseason.

Q: What did you do for fun during the offseason?

A: We got some jet skis and rode them all summer long [in Jupiter, Fla.]. It was the first time I owned my own jet skis, and I got some super-fast ones that go about 80 mph.

Q: Is there a speed limit on the water?

A: Only when you're going out and there are manatees and stuff in the water. But I don't want to go any faster than [80 mph]. That water stings when it hits you, and if you go too fast, you're not jet skiing on the water. You're hydro-planing.
