What was behind the adusted 40 time handed down by the NFL? Was it to lower his stock, and what justification did they have to alter his time. Officially he ran a 4.43. But when put side by side with the fastest players at their respective position, he was the second fastest player at the combine. Ford had the fastest time of 4.28 followed by Jahvid Best of 4.35. Mays clearly ran faster than Best but recieved that 4.43. It just makes me wonder how these guys come up with thoses numbers when the film tells the truth.
