I don't think pat Tillman had crazy low 40 times but he sure was in on a lot of tackles

While world class speed is valuable, I think football speed like 5 yard bursts, open field acceleration, sideline to sideline and ability to read, shrug off blocks and get to the guy with the gallons important

Suggs was fast no doubt but he was strong, he understands leverage and he plays intense football...those characteristics make up for a lot more than just timed straight line speed

I like fast players but an o lineman who knows how to keep his feet moving and whon stays in blocks is a lot more valuable than a sub 5 guy....
