When I mentioned "the media", that was it. One person hear that Luck perform similarly to Cam then deducted that Luck must have ran 4.59 too and write an article about and not even bother to confirm it.
Let's go to the source itself: http://www.nfl.com/c...luck?id=2533031
Like I said, you've been had by the media.
After a bit more research, I've now seen 3 different numbers.
One is the 4.59 that was reported at the time of the combine, and that's the number the combine commentators reported live.
An article on an NFL.com blog stated his 2 runs were 4.59 and 4.66. The average would give him about a 4.625.
And I see where your NFL.com source lists his official time as 4.67.
Bottom line...it really doesn't matter. As I stated in an earlier post, there is much more to being an effective runner than 40 time. Cam is much more elusive and has far better field vision for picking holes, working around blocks, etc. No one in their right mind would claim that Luck was as good at running the ball as Cam.
