    I tend to take a look at the height, weight, and speed of WRs, mainly because my son is playing that position. He's a senior now in high school, and he's 6'1", 170. He's probably stopped growing height wise. Once the season is over he'll start to train for next year, with the goal of getting to a good 180-185. He put on 15 pounds last offseason, and this offseason the program will be even more aggressive. I timed him at 4.60 in the 40 a couple weeks ago. That is a hand time though, but still pretty fast. Oh, I've come to find out something that I've always thought. Most reported high school kid's insane 40 times are bogus. And some of their height and weights are bogus too. A lot of the guys at the NFL combine run a slower 40 time than their reported high school times. That's not just the linemen, who put on a lot of weight at the college level, but the skill position guys too.
    They listed me at 6'5" 240 in high school.. I was 6'3-6'4 220

        IIRC they are also the shortest and tallest Broncos in history.

        Reminds me of a thread awhile back where someone said, "Put them together and they will rule Bartertown!" Classic.

                Here's the article that compares the 40 yard dash time of players at the NFL combine to their reported high school time. Maybe I should start listing my son's 40 time as a 4.49. By the time he's a senior in college he might actually be able to run it. lol

                  It doesn't seem like there are 1696 dots on this graph but I can see trindon and brock so they obviously didn't just account for starters.

                    I would be a linebacker. Unfortunately, my total weight is made up of too much fat and too little muscle.
