    Nice. Fun fact that I looked up today, Bosa has the same 10 yard split and 3 cone drill times as Nick Chubb, and a faster 20 yard shuttle , while weighing 40 pounds heavier. If that's not explosive then I don't know what is.

    All the drills mentioned above pertain to defensive ends. Not the 40 yard dash which is what that fraud Todd McShay keeps peddling. The 40 yard dash for defensive ends is irrelevant and that is easily brought out into the light when you see the incredible production of a player like Nick Bosa. McShay has mentioned the Bosa brothers 40 yard dash times trying to make a point about their so called lack of athleticism clearly missing the point that they have top of the tier athleticism for their position.

    McShay went out of his way to say Ohio State DE Chase Young is a superior athlete to the Bosa brothers which amounts to slander not to mention wrong analysis. And I am high on Young but from what I witnessed in his past two games he is not as good as either Bosa brother. No way.

    A McShay defense would give up 90 points a day. A clueless caste clown.

    I think it pertains to most positions, not just defensive ends, 40 yard plays rarely happen, and when they do, not many are in straight lines for the entire play. For instance, Nick Chubb, Derrick Henry and Christian McCaffrey all had about the same amount of 40+ yard plays, only 4 games where they occurred and I'm sure most of them there were a few cuts and weaving out of traffic for at least part of it, so not totally in a straight line. I'm pretty sure McCaffrey has the most 10 to 20 yard plays out of the 3, and he also has the better agility times, as do most of our guys. Same with wideout, most routes involve some sort of change of direction, except the go route, and that usually comes on play action, so if you don't have a good burst and build up to your speed, most corners can recover and catch up. Quarterbacks in the NFL usually have less than 4 seconds to get rid of the ball, sometimes 5 if they're lucky, but I'm pretty sure the average play a qb has 3 seconds. Pretty much all of our guys excel in short area quickness. Guys like Jeff Maehl and TJ Moe were written off because of 40 times but they were off the charts for the agility drills, Maehl set a record for the 3 cone drill.
