People really need to look at that, and with his decline in play the past year, with this slow time, he's going to fall.
He probably is faster in game action in the short distances, but that lack of speed could be devastating to him. Hell, offensive linemen ran quicker than that.

Micah Johnson should send Spikes a thank you card.

If Spikes drops down too far, I would still take a shot and draft him in the middle rounds.

Remember last year when everyone was thinking he was a top 20 pick if he came out, and how many people on here wanted him in the 1st round last year?
Then he came back to school, and fell off the radar evidently.

Two things that scare me about this. First it's a unofficial time, odds are it will be slower yet. They always seem to run slower time then the official time. Second I would say more often then not people run faster at their pro day sites then they do at the combine. Like Micah Johnson who went from a 4.99 to a 4.84. It just seems like all colleges have a faster pro day surface to run on which could mean Spikes is even slower then we think.

That's gotta hurt him.

Still, 40 times aren't that important and never will be. In our defense he'd spend most of his time trying blocks to shed blocks and tackle the ballcarrier, both of which he's pretty good at. He's also pretty solid in coverage, if he doesn't go somewhere in the top half of Round 2 I'll be surprised.

Could he join the ranks of Darnell Bing, Antaaj Hawthorne and Rodrique Wright?

The funny thing is I didn't like him last year when everyone was hyping him, but I watched him play this season and thought he looked pretty good.

Thats awful. Got to wonder if the only reason he made those plays is because the rest of that defense is much more talented than most of the competition.

Spikes is already hurt by the fact that he is viewed as a 2 down LB. This will only hurt his stock that much more. Every year a backer that is viewed as a 1st rounder drops to the second. Thing is Spikes was viewed as a second rounder, so maybe this drops him to the third.

I would absolutely love to trade down (who wouldn't at this point) and pick up a second 2nd rounder. Draft Odrick with our first, Ducasse and Walton with our seconds and spikes in the third. How sweet would that be.

Holy ****, he is only about half a second faster than Mount Cody.

They should have a race, what drops fastest? Terrence Cody's weight or Brandon Spikes draft stock.

Spikes is going to be the next Dan Connor.

Spikes is still a stud. Who gives a rats ass how fast he can run 40 yards. He will mostly be running a max of 10 yards. Sometimes 20 on side to side plays when chasing down a guy, but really...... This will not drop him past an early 2nd rd pick...He has production and his intangibles are still off the charts... He is a mean nasty mother eff. Someone you want to add some fire to your defense. 40 time for him is overrated, just like aaron currys was last year...


Spikes will make some team happy, hopefully its us in the 2nd.
