Elijah Holyfield did not improve 40 time at pro day.

Sheesh. Had a good year at Georgia too. Hopefully someone picks him up and let's him develop. Feel that he could still be a really good power back in the NFL

maybe the UGA homers will stop with the love for this kid. No thank you

He's definitely powerful no denying that but I wasn't sold on him to begin with either. I'd much rather a recovering Bryce Love before him or even that RB from penn state

Highly doubtful he gets picked at all imo

Yeah analyst were banking on him having a much better pro day because he had a bad combine. Sucks but sometimes on field success just doesn't translate

I meant develop in general. He seemed to have some very good success at Georgia I can see him being a bruiser back. He worked with Christian Coleman the track star (holds 40 yard dash indoor record) so shocking he didn't improve his time at all

4 different 40 times all in pads:

  • One on grass
  • One on turf
  • One on grass with cones (cutting).
  • One on turf with cones (cutting).

Something like that.  When do you ever run 40 yards in a straight line during a game

Perfect. Gives you a overall analysis imo. You could be a blazer but not translate to having pads on

Elijah isn't your speed player but he can block and his avg in the NFL will be 5.5 to 6 ypc with a high after contact. 

Turner the burner wasn't blowing down the field either but watching him was alot of fun

He planning on leading the NFL in ypc?  This isn’t the SEC anymore

Turner had breakaway speed, don't know what you're smoking. That's the reason he was called the Burner.

Zero chance he has 5.5-6 ypc.

Holyfield just isn't that good.

Yards after contact

He was referring to your 5.5-6 yards per carry claim. Unless we assume he's gonna have a best average in NFL history, over Jamaal Charles, Jim Brown, Barry Sanders and Gayle Sayers, I'd say that's a bit of a stretch.
