Stud '15 McEachern (Ga.) RB Taj Griffin texted me with the card to show he ran a 4.43 40 at today's Atlanta SPARQ combine.
Yeah, he's legit.
Do they laser time at the SPARQ events.
Sweet! Hope UNCs running game is great this year to show watt others can do!
Dang! Just prospective, he would have been third at the NFL combine amongst running backs.
"The 40-yard dash draws the most attention and Onterio McCalebb led the way for running backs. McCalebb posted a 4.34 40 time, 0.03 ahead of Knile Davis who finished second at 4.37. Kerwynn Williams at 4.48 and Johnathan Franklin at 4.49 were the only other players to run faster than 4.5."
Running back workouts at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine are in the books and while no player stole the show, several players performed well.
And just imagine he's only going to get faster! Hopefully he does it in Chapel Hill!
Our backfield is going to be young but deadly this season. Blue will probably start, Morris/Francis will probably get the same amount of snaps. Blue is a bruiser, Morris is a speedster and Francis is a combo (Gio-esque). Not to mention TJ Logan and Switz getting carries.
It's really unfortunate the weather conditions were so bad today in Atlanta for this combine. 40 degrees, stiff wind (which made chill like 33) and at times mist/flurries. Really wish this could be done in dome as every year Atlanta combine weather less than ideal in early march.
2015 RB Taj Griffin of McEachern: 4.43 40, 4.1 shuttle, 40" vertical, 29 PB...105 SPARQ
He will be going to Orlando combine in 2 weeks for hopefully more favorable weather ...expect high 4.3 40 down there.
That kind of back in the Fed Spread would be magical!
Please let us know how it goes.
That is crazy fast!
Hope Taj can make it to Chapel Hill soon too!
