I know the "Texans workout Justin Gatlin" story happened awhile ago, but I was just wondering, does anyone know what his 40 was clocked at? I'm just curious, as it'd be interesting to see him have a shot in the league. I'm not saying I think this guy will be a great player, hell, he may not even be good, but it'd be interesting to see what he can do.

Something ridiculous- I think it was Stuart Scott that said 3.8. :eek::eek:

Holy CRAP! :eek:

I doubt he'd ever make the Pro Bowl, but if he did I guess De'Angelo Hall wouldn't win that fastest man contest anymore :lol:

Anyway, I hope he DOES sign with someone, it can't hurt and it might be interesting to watch.

A 3.8 is completely unrealistic. If they clocked that, they must've given him a 10 yard head start. I read an article on 40's a while back and it talked about how sprinters times aren't as fast as you'd think because a lot of their speed comes from momentum at the back end of the 100m or something.

Maurice Greene (I think it was him -- or another world class sprinter) ran the 40 a few years back I remember. He clocked a 4.38.

My understanding is that you probably couldn't find someone break 4.2 legitimately.

Gatlin, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound native of Brooklyn, last played football in 10th grade. He is believed to have run the 40-yard dash in a blinding 4.1 seconds, and he made a spectacular 50-yard catch during the workout, according to another player who participated in the session.

Damn 4.1 seconds.

I'll believe it when I see it. Still, if it's true, pretty hilarious that he cuts about a second off most linemen :lol:

He would be a great kick returner and no one would be able to defend him on the deep ball.

I doubt he could change direction. He would be running fly routes and thats it.

HE runs a 3.8 i heard, and yes i mean ill start him on croner.

You tell justin hey try to cover him tight if he juks you well get back to him cause you got world class speed, i mean champ bailey is a little gambler and has the great speed to make up for it, imagine 3.8.

Yes 3.8 is man its just insane, and have him return some balls, i eman when youre that fast very body looks so slow you just have to out run them and hit a hole, i mean every can hit a hole but do you have the speed to break away and this guy does.

deion ran a low 4.2 and i think i heard he ran a 4.1 and could run a 4.0 flat in trained right.

Deion was rumored to have run a 4.19 once, but from what I've heard, that was incorrect info. He ran in the 4.2's I'm pretty sure, but the faster time at the combine ever is like, 4.28? I'm pretty sure it depends on the timers too. Remember when A.J. Hawk ran that 4.38 last year? :eek:

I'm pretty sure those times were never recorded electronically.
Hand held timers are not reliable.

L.Coles ran a legit 4.18 per FSU staff. The 40 was electronicly timed.
