    You'll have to explain to me how a vertical jump translates into explosiveness.[/quote]

    Vert and long jump are the two best tests to show instantaneous burst.

    40 is for long speed, the shuttle and cone drills show lateral speed and agility.

    I get the long jump part ... but vertical and "explosiveness"?

    I dont get what you dont understand.


    the two jumping drills are the best indication of how quickly a guy can coil and explode.

    One is lateral, one is vertical, but both are very similar.

    <font size="2">Believe it or not, 40 times do matter to a certain extent. Whoever the poster was that said it was a measuring tool hit it on the head. Game films and live game scouting will always be the number one consideration for placing prospects in the draft though.</font>
