wow. Unofficial, but wow.

NDIANAPOLIS — The competition just went up a notch here at the NFL Scouting Combine, as two of the top safeties just posted a couple of eye-popping numbers.

USC safety Taylor Mays was clocked with an unofficial 4.24-second 40-yard dash. If that number holds, it would tie Chris Johnson for the fastest 40 time in the combine since 2000. NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks did hear another scout put Mays at 4.33, but even with that time, Mays would become the second-fastest participant at this year’s combine.

My response to this is: "HOLY CRAP!!!!"

Can you imagine converting this guy to a LB like we did with Thomas Davis?

Wasn't there concern about him being to slow to play the S position and that he may need to switch to LB???

Running, like, really fast in a straight line won't help him to not miss tackles, take poor angles to the ball, and get beat in coverage. Will Linebacker.

very true, but that speed will help him to get to the ball on a deep route coming over the top. And if he is that fast and he gets to someone at that speed, as big as he is, he might kill someone.

But it will help a team reach for him.

Everyone knew he would run fast and was a freak athletically. Why in the world would this showing at the combine change anyone's opinion on him? That speed didnt help him get over the top against Golden Tate. I'm talking about game film. Big hitter but misses tackles, so-so to adequate in coverage, great straight line speed. Sounds like Charles Godfrey to me.

5 interceptions in 4 years with no get to the ball instincts. That being said even if that comes back being 4.35 or lower someone can work with him and turn that speed into success at some position.
