Good Speed at Receiver
The time of 4.3 seconds posted by Maryland's Darrius Heyward-Bey in his 40-yard dash today at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis was the best among the draft-hopeful wide receivers.
But there were good times among the other wideouts as well, and the speed at the position perhaps could lead to a first-round run on receivers in April a year after no wide receivers were drafted in the first round.
"This group ran amazingly well," Colts President Bill Polian said during his news conference today. "I think we had 11 in the first group who were sub-4.5 and had probably the same in the second group--some amazing times. Some people had them down in the 4.29, things like that. We know two things: That's a fast track, and we've got a bunch of fast receivers. That's all for the good.
"It will be interesting to go through the tape in greater detail and really break these guys down. When you find that kind of speed, that's a rare commodity. [It's] clearly a good group, very deep and very exciting."
