    Itís that 10% that made him special. Thatís a huge difference in the NFL. Iím just hoping Smith can be what Hitchins was.

    Jaylon said yesterday that he ran a 3.98 20 yard shuttle drill. I have not seen that verified, but if true, holy shit.

    You're right. LVH ran a 4.15 at the combine. The fastest LB was 4.07 though a lot of the elite guys didn't run it at all.

    Hes packed on 8 pounds of muscle, and is at a stellar 3.5 percent body fat. Whoa, somebody got serious.
    Did you lack those 3 Super Bowls?

    It still won't matter if he can't read what is unfolding in front of him.

    Too many times last year he was like a dog chasing hubcaps.

    This is true although we don't know how much of that was a lack of confidence in his lateral agility. He was clearly much more explosive in a straight line so that could've resulted in him taking more risks guessing where the ball was going instead of waiting to read the play out.

    At any rate, I'm confident that his mental processing will improve if for no other reason than the presence of Lee. Myles Jack looked completely lost as a rookie and then was a Pro Bowl caliber player last year, if Smith truly is anywhere near 100% physically I expect a similar type of jump.

    The good thing is that Vander Esch is actually excellent at reading plays and slithering through traffic/past blocks, so even if Smith doesn't improve much in that regard, we'll have another LB aside from Lee with that ability to diagnose.

    There were only two people that ran it faster at this year's combine and both were DBs.

    Injury recovery while working through what was essentially his rookie season.

    Weíll see the real Jaylon by the end of the year.

    Let's hope. But the early results weren't promising.

    He COULD develop and end up great, but I don't think it's wise to count on that.
