    I ran a 7.32 60 yard dash in a tryout for baseball, but never ran the 40. I suppose it'd be around 5 in the 40 yard dash then.

    4.7 senior year in HS, was better at gassers (200 yds, not meters) I want to say backs and receivers had to run sub 40 and I was always around the 35-36 mark

    Right now at 38 years old, a 4.9

    ran hand clocked 4.48 and 4.49 at a college camp going into my senior year of high school and ran hand clocked 4.51's-4.55's all the way through college....that would translate out to about a 4.6 using the accutrack at the combine

    I would run hand timed 40's for football (played receiver and safety) in the 4.7 range. I think there is some hot air up in this thread... Lol.

    Let's start a thread on our salary range...... :D This 205lb white boy is probably the slowest guy in his 20's from this forum. Maybe 30's and 40's too. :D

    ^This. Even when I was younger I was slow and the politically correct term of my era was 'Husky'...

    You guys realize most NFL receivers run 4.5's, right? Laser times that is.

    Add .2 or .3 to any hand timed 40 you ever ran to get a better comparison to an electronic timed 40.
