Projected OLB Bruce Irvin runs a 4.43 40 yard dash


Read here. I posted about Irvin a few weeks ago and there are reasons why he would be a gamble. But a 4.43 from a 245 pound LB? That’s crazy. That’s the kind of make-up speed that could really help not only in the pass rush, but in coverage. This guy continues to intrigue me – and there is something about his story too that makes me wonder if he’s been on TT’s radar too.

    Zach Brown just ran 4.45 in the 40. Weight is now listed at 244. Another option for Packers? Seems to be moving up draft boards.

    Interesting read from PFT

    Get him down to 230 lbs and make him a safty, If he can drop those 15 lbs I would think he would be even faster.

      interesting thought. would be a little like the Aaron Rouse experiment from a few years ago – though this guy has a bit more speed. if he’s used to rushing the passer and dealing with big bodies, i’d bet he could deliver some pretty punishing blows from the safety spot – and he has the speed to compensate for mistakes. interesting thought.
