    I am trying out for the UCLA football team. Basic sprints, 40, cone drills, agility, etc. as far as they told us. I'm freaking out right now. ~20 of us are trying out for 1-3 spots on the team. I'm going for safety as is my friend and I have no idea what everyone else is going out for. I'm scared... :noes::noes:

    Current Stats:
    6'0
    ~195lbs
    Bench: 245ish
    Squat: 320ish
    Dead: 350? I haven't maxed on this in a long time because I've been scared of hurting my back like I did the last time I maxed.

    I'll let you know the 40/agility times when I get back from tryouts and how well I think I did. Unfortunately they moved tryouts up a month from when they originally told us and they did this roughly 2 weeks ago so it absolutely RUINED the speed work I was trying to do and I didn't get to finish.

    Wish me luck my broly brothers :x::noes:

    Wouldn't be suprised.... John Lynch ran a 4.65 in the combine for the NFL going into the draft if I remember correctly... as long as I can run that I'm happy

    electronic 4.9 @ 255 senior year of high school - then I discovered drinking more than once a week was better than only drinking once a week.

    Drinking has a big affect on your lung capacity/efficiency, even more so than smoking in healthy indivduals.

    A safety at 6'0" 200LB, in D1 ball?

    I'd say he'll be fine, although I'll bet there are going to be a bunch of speedsters trying to grab a safety position after they didnt make receiver or back.

    The affects, though, are also more short term in healthy individuals.

    But to be a regular drinker and play ball is tough. And Im not talking one or two beers on the weekdays and getting trashed on the weekend. But getting drunk on a regular basis and then attending practice 5-6 days a week is brutal. :o

    i semi agree, but he's in the pac-10 it's not like he's going to have to come up to help stop a big 10 running back, he'll mostly be in coverage and with smaller guys, so speed and other shit is probably more important in that conference.

    Vincent Fuller from VT 6'1" 189 LBs

    Played safety and DB for the Hokies.

    Brodney Pool Oklahoma 6'1" 207 LBs

    Was ranked as the number one safety coming out of the 04 draft. Ran a 4.53.


    That was just a quick search for players that entered the NFL draft. There are smaller safeties in the NFL. :rofl:

    Good luck bro!

    Weird, I ran a 4.5 in High School too. Always wish I would have ran track, but spent my time stealing bases instead :hs:.

    :ugh:

    You are obviously, hugely, missing the point.

    He is going for safety, do you know much about football?

    Ed Reed is SS who is shorter than the thread starter and his listed weight is only 200 :rofl: Which inflated for strategic reasons.

    That's right off the top of my head. Should I find smaller ones in THE NFL for you?

    apparently you don't know much about reading comprehension, since the only reference was made about the guy's strength, not about his size. You're the only one who's discussed his size at all, I think he's a fine size to play DB, in fact i'd say he's a great size for playing, especially if he runs 4.5-4.6 at this point, as a walk on, would look good.
