Bills have Maybin as 4.65 to 4.7 in 40

There’s been a wide disparity of 40 times on Penn State OLB/DE Aaron Maybin this offseason after his well publicized pro day, with some reports of 4.53 times and such. The Bills, like every other team have their times on him.

Bills VP of College Scouting Tom Modrak has him in the mid 4.6s on his watch.

“He’s a 4.65 or 4.7 guy,” said Modrak. “That’s him basically. He may run faster on some days, but that’s true on every day. He runs fast, he covers the field. His play speed is very good. It may be even more of an issue. You’d like to have the support of the clock, but his play speed is real good.”

Oftentimes scouts rely more on a prospect’s playing speed than timed speed, and Maybin made his share of plays despite a 40 time that doesn’t blow anyone away for someone that’s supposed to be an elite pass rusher. With a thin college resume of production and lacking an elite measurable it’ll be interesting to see how teams value him.
