Vincent Brown improves forty time


San Diego State wide receiver Vincent Brown had a terrific Senior Bowl week, but his postseason momentum hit a speedbump at the combine when he ran the forty-yard dash around 4.7.

Brown improved that time drastically at his pro day on Thursday according to Adam Caplan of, running between a 4.52 and 4.57.  Brown isn’t known as a burner, but he has good hands and excellent route running skills.

“Well, I play much faster than my 40-time says. I can be a deep threat and I have a pretty good feel for the game,” Brown said.

Brown fits the profile of what the Chargers usually look for in a receiver, and they  seemed to show special interest in him throughout the draft process.   He’s likely a mid-round prospect.

  1. We KNOW that times recorded at the Combine are accurate. Same cannot be said for Pro Day.

  2. Rosenthal, where do you get your inside info? A magic 8-ball?

    The Chargers LOVE the size-speed WRs like Vincent Jackson 6’5 240-4.5, Malcolm Floyd 6’4, Naanee 6’2 220-4.4, etc. Almost all of the WRs they draft are well over 6’… and Brown is 5’11… he is anything but a typical Charger WR. Your intelligence is faulty.

  3. So he (and others) improved his time. Big deal. Does that mean he will always run this fast as a player? Nope! Do the techniques of running he learned to improve his 40 time translate to a football field? Nope!
