NFL combine results are flushing out like last night’s dinner (hooray awful imagery), and it’s always interesting to see how former Buckeyes compare when lined up next to some of the nation’s best prospects. The combine is usually the event that most SEC fans point to when making their SEC SPEED!!! arguments, and Florida fans are particularly obnoxious when it comes to “40 times”.
That’s why I was shocked, surprised and a little suspicious when the 40 times of Florida’s starting safeties, Will Hill and Ahmad Black, were released by the combine. Will Hill reportedly ran a 4.64 in the 40 yard dash and Ahmad Black chugged along for a 4.78 second 40.
For those of you unfamiliar with 40 times, 4.64 and 4.78 are painfully slow for a safety. It’s almost insultingly slow. As a matter of fact, I just ate an extra large Papa John’s meat-lovers pizza in its entirety, with a 2-liter of Dr. Pepper, then went out and posted a faster time than that.
For comparisons sake, here are some 40 times that former Buckeyes posted at the combine:
Chimde Chekwa, CB -- 4.33 secondsBrian Rolle, LB -- 4.56 secondsRoss Homan, (White) LB -- 4.68 seconds
Yeah, two of Ohio State’s linebackers posted better times than the duo of Florida safeties. Now, just for fun, allow me to list the defensive lineman that ran 40 yards faster than Ahmad Black. A reminder -- defensive lineman are those big fat guys that squat down in front of the linebackers:
Dontay Moch -- 4.44 secondsChris Carter -- 4.62 secondsSam Acho -- 4.68 secondsBrooks Reed -- 4.68 secondsJabaal Sheard -- 4.69 secondsRobert Quinn -- 4.70 secondsUgo Chinasa -- 4.71 secondsRyan Kerrigan -- 4.71 secondsAllen Bailey -- 4.77 seconds
As a fun note, none of the defensive lineman listed above hail from the Southeastern Conference. SEC SPEEEEEEED!!!!
