40 Time Needed To Be A College WR

There is a lot of emphasis and pressure placed on your 40yd dash time. But honestly, the exact time does not matter. A college coach will recruit you based on your game film. Not how you perform at a combine. However, don’t misunderstand me, the combines are still important and if you test well that will only help your cause. Mainly what I am trying to say is that if you don’t run a 4.3-4.5 40yd dash that is not the end of the world. You still should work on speed and athleticism but if let’s say you have a bad outing at a combine… you can still get a scholarship and still get offered. Now again, don’t misunderstand me… if you are running a 5 flat 40 or above you probably aren’t cut out to play at the division 1 level yet. So your speed needs to improve and you need to be doing workouts specifically to develop that. See a speed coach, checkout some of the workouts we have but your goal needs to be looking fast on tape. If you look fast on tape, your 40 doesn’t matter. College coaches look over thousands of hours of film. They can tell when a guy is fast and when a guy isn’t. The 40 is so technical so if you have a bad start you can lose probably .2-.4 seconds on your time. But you may be just as fast as a guy who runs a 4.5 when the pads come on. Be focused on developing your in game speed and in game skills. Not your 40 time. Your highlight tape gets you recruited.
