People have been talking about how our secondary needs to be more athletic and it is so true. Bandy shouldn't be our fastest CB by a good margin. Though I like Justin Hodges, we do not need to be recruiting any guys running more than a 4.6 forty. I do not how many CBs we are taking, but they better recruit some athletes and the back end in order to catch to the top dogs.
 
This is exactly why UM should wait on taking a commit from 2020 LB Corey Flagg from Texas, until after the season. A 4.9 40yd LB at Miami is no bueno.

No exactly why Miami should take him. That’s his only bad number. His shuttle time means he can move laterally and is quick. That with his instincts, are the reasons he’s a tackling machine.
 
One thing Michael jackson certainly improved his atheltic profile to 95 or 96th percentile when he was drafted compared to just 63rd percentile entering Miami. Still not sure why he only went 5th round given his elite testing numbers

I disagree. The 40 time isn't everything. His short area quickly is good. A take all day in my opinion. He can improve his speed.

Miami should take 2020 LB Tyler Berrong if we are taking slower players. BERRONG had a 4.32 shuttle and is 6'3" 220lbs not to mention it helps with his 2021 TE cousin.

He looks a little stiff. At his size we'd move him to DE and maybe he has the bend to come around the corner but I don't see it.
 
@Lance Roffers do you think there was limited/no correlation between athleticism and success in WR because they tend to be so athletic? Read something about Berkson's Paradox limiting statisticians' ability to find correlations between certain measurables and success in NFL combine testers simply because they're all so athletic and not the general population. Saw the same thing in testing for valgus stress in NBA players because they're all so tall and not the general population

I understand that concept, but that’s not what’s happening here. The WR’s tested all over the place at both the college and NFL combines.

QB’s actually averaged a faster short shuttle than WR’s. There are some crazy athletes that make All-Conference at the position, but the majority are more middle-of-the-pack athletically.

I still believe it’s more nuanced in route running and maintaining speed in-and-out of breaks.

Yeah, route running and the catch radius can’t really be measured with the combine testing numbers. Having good QB play as well can contribute to an all conference WR.
 
@Lance Roffers any advanced analytics on first down play calling last year and how we can improve on that with enos? I feel Like the last few years we wasted that down in which we could have been 2nd and short if the right play was called
