Just curious...if you got up and had to particpate in a combine today...what would your measurements look like?
Man...at 35...it wouldn't be that great...ahahahahahaha!
5' 9" 188lbs
15 on the bench with 225 (I regularly hit the gym)
8' Broad jump.
8 on the bench with 225
10 Broad jump
I wish I could do that now...
These 40 times are laughable. Remember that this is an electronic timed one and I seriously doubt many guys on here could get sub 4.70 at a NFL combine.
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 225 lb
40 : 5.0 (i would probably tear a hammy)
Vertical: 29" (crossfit helps get this closer to what it used to be)
Reps at 225: 15
Wonderlic: 40 +/- 3
I workout 4-5 times a week at a Crossfit gym, but I eat like crap (box of girl scout cookies yesterday as an example). I was fairly athletic for a big guy as a kid, but nowhere near elite. I have always scored 99th percentile on all standardized logic tests, but I read like I run, slow; so I backed out that wonderlic guess from IQ tests.
I think it would be fun, thats probably why I go to Crossfit (that I I don't want to weigh 500 pounds).
Did anyone of you watch the Rich Eisen, ESPN commentator, from last year. That would be me. Slow, white guy.
Some of us have to keep it real on here:
Height 6'1" Weight 225
40 time 6.2
Vertical 20" Can reach 8ft but can't touch the rim anymore and usually pull something trying.
Broad Jump 6 ft maybe and a trip to the er
Bench 225 - Maybe once. Not currently working out
I've always been a better than average athlete and have good hand eye coordination but have no illusions of posting combine numbers anywhere close to what we see from the guys on Bama's team. I think there have been some optimistic 40 times posted but who knows. It 's amazing that over 85 percent of my friends claim to have run at least a 4.5 40 at some point in their lives. Played football with a guy in high school who had a 10 year career in the NFL as a nickel back. He ran a 4.5 at the combine and was way faster than 98% of the people on a high school football field. So I'm always amazed at the number of people who claim to have run in the mid 4 second range.
It would look very similar to an asthma attack

Brother Oliver would need to have the defibrillator close by.... It would get ugly fast....
Knee surgeries 3
7-8 bench with 225
6' 6" Broad jump
I may be able to do better than that, no idea really. I can still run down my teenage nephews if I have/want to, but I have to take the angles to do it.

Age 40, 295 pounds with 3 knee surgeries and running a 5.3 - 5.5 40 is impressive. We've got 20 year old 295 offensive linemen in their prime heading to the NFL that are in that range or slower. Not trying to call people out, but I think if everyone added one second to their 40 times posted, we would be approaching some sort of reality. Probably true for my 6.2 as well. How many of us have actually ran a properly timed 40 lately. I imagine it would be a humbling experience.
5 on the bench with 225 (if I could do that, I'd be surprised)
6' on the Broad Jump
15 on the bench with 225 (possibly more, but that's probably about right, I bench pressed about 340 in high school)
20" vertical jump (just barely missed being able to dunk)
7'6" or there abouts on the broad jump
Shuttle (5-10-5) was 5.0 on a regular basis
Age 35 with 4.5 40 and 17 reps of 225. Equal in strength to Julio and just a hair over a tenth of a second slower than him. In a 40 yard dash he would be ahead of you by only a few inches. That's impressive! We have some seriously in shape posters on this board.

We should have an official BOL poster combine on the Quad at one of next seasons games. I have got to see all of these middle aged posters show off their elite NFL speed. Do people realize how fast a true 4.5 is? Rolando and Tebow ran in the 4.7 seven range and they didn't look slow on the field. Anybody an athletic trainer? Got a feeling we will see a lot of injuries.(g)
I can still do a backflip too PcolaTide, although I don't do that too often because of the mentioned knee issues.
I would love to see a 295 pound man do a standing back flip. No doubt that would have to be hell on the knees. I would likely break my neck, collar bone, dislocate my shoulder, or who knows what. I just know that it would not end well or look graceful!
40: 6 (i'm actually pretty fast for my weigh)
225 Bench: 0
Trying to be a realist. Might be able to get one up on the bench, but it's been so long since I've benched... who knows.
225 Bench: 10
Man, things have changed alot in the last decade...
Bench 12 reps @ 225
Vertical ~ 27
Broad Jump 8'
40 ~ 4.9
Those numbers are a good deal better than me coming out of high schol. I could barely bench the bar. I could probably jump a little higher but I was around 6-3 160.
I myself am a slow white guy, but I had two guys on my highschool team that ran real 4.5 and 4.4 40s. One was also a 5A 100m champ in Georgia at the time. Those two were the fastest guys on the team by several steps, and usually the fastest guys on the field unless we played one of the Atlanta inner city schools (they usually had guys who could run with them). I agree People way underestimate their 40 times. A real 4.8 is fast for a highschool football player, 4.6 is a burner. I may be able to run a 5.1 these days, if I can keep from pulling a muscle on the way down.
