Really hate the guys success don't you?
Scouts and Rivals are companies that rank and evaluate highschool players, and they approximate or guess on a lot of their info, either what they hear from sources or whatever. Maybe when he was a high school senior and weighed 170 pounds he ran a 4.39? Maybe he never ran that fast ever. Maybe he ran sub 4.3 at the combine.
Only actual verified time I can find is a 4.51 he ran at his pro day.
I don't think he was invited to the combine....just saying...;)
scroll down that page it says not invited
Here is his scout.com profile - http://michigan.scout.com/a.z?s=162&p=8&c=1&nid=1857533
You do know what "sources" for articles or information are, right? Thats why wikipedia links them.
See how it says 4.40 40, and that he is 6'1? Those are what info they have on him says he was coming out of high school. Unless he shrunk over an inch since high school, those numbers may have been inflated.
Here is his rivals.com link - http://rivals.yahoo.com/footballrecr...KeQYR7PrdDPZB4
The rivals one is another one from when he was a senior in high school and being recruited.
This one has him at an inch shorter and running a 4.39 instead of a 4.4
The only actual height/weight/40 time we have that was timed and measured by nfl scouts was the 5112 height, 212 weight, and 4.51 40. And thats not knocking brown, I would love to know how he did at the actual combine, but I cant find the info.
