Reggie Bush Pro Day Results


#1


Bush ran a 4.33 and 4.38 40-yard dash while weighing 202 pounds at 5'11. His vertical was 40.5 inches and his standing broad jump was 10-8.5. The following page has a link to video of his 40-yard dash:

#2

Didn't he do a bunch of linemen-type reps of 225 on the bench as well?


#3

I think he did in the mid to upper 20's, not bad for a 200 pounder.

However, does anybody know how many colleges allow their 40's to be run on a track in track shoes?

We had to run ours on field turf in regular workout sneakers, what the crap... no wonder PSU 40 times are so slow


#4

Those are some pretty impressive numbers, but his instincts and animal-like agility are what make my jaw drop the most.


#5

We had to run ours in sneakers as well, but on a pro day they didn't care if you wore track spikes.


#6

if you watch that video it says he benched 225lbs for 24 reps


#7

Fucking beast.


#8

That kids an animal. I don't follow football to much anymore, but as a native Houstonian I'm glad he'll be doin his thing at reliant.


#9

He certainly has great numbers to back up his great play over the last 3 years.

Did he run a shuttle and cone drill. That's where I'd assume that he's best at. His start stop start is incredible and so is his agility. I'll go out on a limp and guess that his shuttle is like 3.70 and cone drill 6.60 seconds.


#10

Pretty impressive stuff, though what stood out for me at the USC pro day was Winston Justice getting a 39" vertical @ 320lbs.


#11

Not often you get to see a clear shot of a combine vertical jump,

he supposedly jumped 40.5 inches at this Pro Day, but at combines they measure reach with 2 hands and jump with one, so it's only about 36-37 inches at a guess :slight_smile:

Bottom of his feet reaches his crotch area and he's 6 feet tall (in shoes), so that looks about right. If his feet hit his waist area then that's a 40 inch VJ...

according to this article
http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/3766127.html

Reggie Bush had the highest vertical on his team

Quote:? 40.5 ? Bush's vertical leap in inches, the highest mark on his team.
? 10 feet, 8.5 inches ? The longest broad jump of the day, also recorded by Bush.

So the fact he actually only jumped 36-37 inches means that there ain't to many folks at the 40 inch mark :wink:


#12

the video in question showing his VJ clearly


#13

Instincts...you mean like trying to pitch the ball and fumbling on the 10 yard line instead?


#14

reggie bush benching on pro day

reggie's 40


#15

no, like making a cut on a dime and being able to reverse field and instinctually know he had blockers coming from behind him to help out

you must be a cal fan


#16

#17

Wait a minute...what happend to New Orleans? That video said he's going to Houston.


#18

Assuming that wasn't a smart ass remark... Reggie was considered a lock for the #1 pick overall.

How he wasn't still remains a mystery to alot of people, some say it had to do with the housing scandal his parents had to deal with. Why they (the houstons) picked mario williams number 1 will leave experts stumped for a while.


#19

Now that's a crazy run!


#20

you're right.
In college the strength coaches made us run on we turf in sneakers.

I had this theroy that they wanted us to run slow so if their program was ever questioned they could have us test again with spikes to show improvement.
