Connor's Rivals profile has him at a 4.53, which he probably ran at some camp or HS combine.

The 4.3 Nick Jones time comes (I believe) from an article on GCC several days ago about him, in which there's a sentence that says something like "Jones, who said he runs the 40 in 4.35 and benches ###, thinks the USC strength program will help him" or something. Rivals profile has his 40 at 4.5 and his shuttle at 4.3.

Keep in mind, these Rivals profiles are NOT necessarily authoritative. And they also have for sure NOT been updated since Signing Day, and in most cases, a good while longer.

I actually believe that Shaw does run a 4.5. Did anyone see him run during Spring Practices? He is FAST. We never saw him make a 40 yard run or anything, but when he broke the LOS, he was GONE. He is quick, exclusive. He will make bigger plays on his feet than Garcia in the open field. I don't know if he will be able to get first downs like Garcia has done (note Kentucky and Florida), but he is fast.

Putting things into perspective-NFL combine 40s:
Tebow- 4.72
Pat White-QB-('09) 4.55
Knowshown Moreno-('09) 4.63
Kenny McKinley-('09) 4.44
Jared Cook-('09) 4.50
Cory Boyd-('08) 4.51

Looking forward to seeing Connor Shaw run.

They are reporting over here on the GON sports forum board that vance cuff (CB) was clocked at a 4.27 and a 4.24 respectively at spring practice. It is the fastest 40 ever clocked by a UGA player. Faster than champ bailey or fred gibson. But if our tall receivers out jump him for the ball all the speed in the world won't matter.


BTW, some of you guys should drop in over there so I am not always representing the gamecock nation solo....pretty objective group of football lovers over there. Fans from all SEC teams on the board so you can swipe at any of your choosing...only issue is it is G family rated so leave the obscene at the gate....

4.7 for Garcia coming from HS is pretty good. That's certainly fast enough to be a "dual threat," especially since Garcia is and was bigger than Shaw.

You have to consider the fact that college hash marks are 60 ft from the sideline... and the field is 160 ft wide. Thus, a two yard gain on an option sweep may result in running about 33-34 yards.

So yeah... speed matters... especially for a QB running some option.
