Here are some 40 times of some notable LBs in the draft. Aaron Curry ran an impressive time of 4.54.
USC’s Brian Cushing ran a 4.64 (unofficial). His teammate Clay Matthews ran a strong 4.59 and their other teammate Kaluka Maiava ran a 4.78. Maualuga as we mentioned in a previous post ran an unofficial 4.83, and pulled up lame right after gearing down from the run. Virginia’s Clint Sintim ran a 4.78.
Ohio State LB Marcus Freeman continued his strong workout with a 4.67. He also had 30 reps on the bench press. James Laurinaitis did not fare as well on his first run, which unofficially was 4.81.
That time is a bit disappointing and likely convinces NFL teams that he’s strictly an inside linebacker.
