Su’a Cravens Jersey , he wants to become more of a Von Miller.The Broncos outside linebacker said at the start of offseason workouts Tuesday that he’s added 10 pounds this offseason, getting up to 245.“It’s a totally different player being 245 to 235,” Miller said, via Kyle Fredrickson of the. “It’s a totally different game. . . .“It’s when you get locked up with an offensive lineman and wherever you’re able to go with that. At 245, you can go just a little bit further with that. So 245 is where I wanted to be at.”Miller played at 236 during the Broncos’ Super Bowl run, but said he wanted to evolve as a player under new coach Vic Fangio.“I wanted to really focus on my nutrition and working out Jared Veldheer Jersey ,” Miller said. “Really stack days and get my body weight back up to where it’s supposed to be. I feel like I did that up until this point.“It’s not a lot, but I need that 10 pounds.”And there are plenty of people out there who would be willing to share 10 with Von, if he needed help keeping pounds on. His Speed Score and Quix Score combine to make Fant one of the best athletes as tight end to come out of college this century."The NFL combine CAN BE useful to differentiate between players who are elite athletes (even when compared to other elite athletes) and players who are good athletes with elite football skills. This article will not try to speak to Noah Fant’s football skills, but it will show you that he is one of the best athletes at tight end to come out of college this century. About 20 years ago one of my fellow draft/combine nerds came up with Speed Score, which basically grades a player on how fast they are for their mass. The underlying assumption is that smaller players SHOULD be fast. Big players who are also fast (using 40 yard dash as measure of fast) get huge speed scores. A value above 120 is elite. A value of 100 is “average” and a value over 130 is other-wordly. Calvin Johnson was 233 pounds at the NFL combine and ran a 4.33 40. That worked out to a speed score of 132.6. Here are the top 20 speed scores from the 2019 combine. You’ll notice that three of the players in the top 20 went undrafted. You should also notice that both Fant and Justin Hollins show up on this list. The Broncos got two guys with elite straight-line speed, but I’ve never really liked using 40 yard dash (in underwear) times to evaluate players since 40 times rarely correlate to NFL success. I think that there is more value in looking at the quickness (and change of direction ability) of players as measured by the three-cone drill and the 20-yard short shuttle. A few years ago I came up with a way to get a quickness score similar to the Speed Score. Here are the top 20 players from the 2019 combine in terms of Quix Score.I should mention that players who did not participate in one of the two drills used for Quix Score Connor McGovern Jersey , obviously were not given a quickness score, and I did not want to use Pro Day values. A score of 120 is elite. You should note that every player in the top 20 was drafted. You should also note that Noah Fant is on this list as well. So he is not only fast, but also quick. How does his combination of speed and quickness compare to other tight ends this century? Let’s take a look. Fant has the sixth-best Speed Score for a tight end at the combine this century. Our old friend, Virgil Green, is on this list as well. Fant has the eighth best Quix Score for a tight end this century. If you average the Quix and the Speed Score, you get a new value I am calling QuiSp. Noah Fant has the eighth best QuiSp for a tight end this century. Fant’s combination of size Ja’Wuan James Jersey , speed and quickness is elite for a tight end. The comparisons to Jared Cook and George Kittle make sense given that both players are also in the top 10 in QuiSp for TEs at the combine this century.If you look at the 10 most productive NFL TEs to be drafted this century, you’ll find that most of them did not show on that list of the top 20 Speed Score and Quix Scores for TEs this century. So I guess the comparison to Jared Cook is good since he is one of the TEs who performed both well at the combine and well once he got into the NFL.
