He appears to be the more quintessential "change of pace" guy. 5 foot 7, 190lbs and reportedly runs 4.3. He's a homerun hitter with explosive moves.


I didn't read he ran a 4.3, but a 4.5. Are you sure of this info?

I'm sure that I've seen both times reported, so not sure what the truth is. What is certain is that his film shows him running away from a lot of people very quickly.

Edit: a quick re-read of some scouting reports provides a consensus of 4.4 in the 40.

The article that I read said that prior to his injury, he was a "sub 4.4" guy. In addition to his speed, his quickness and acceleration seem off the charts.

I think his game film speaks more than enough for his "game speed".

This is a tough question to answer. I would distinguish between the people I am really hoping will have a big year versus who I think will in fact have a big year.

I am really hoping for Merriweather, Orakpo, and Garcon to have big seasons — key positions that, if they play at a Pro Bowl level, will make us serious contenders late in the year. However, all three players strike me as people who never quite deliver at or above what their potential suggests — I'm not blaming any of them, but I just don't think they've demonstrated the ability to produce a consistent, dominating season.

The players that I think will actually have a big year are RGIII, who can work his way through almost any adversity and IMO won't hit a sophomore slump, Trent Williams, and Phillip Thomas.
