You are such a tool. Stop making the same lance reference its old and tired. I hate high and mighty gayasses like you. People like you act like your above everything.

Justin is lanced so he should fit into the NFL just fine.
LSU's Trindon Holliday has run 4.27 in basketball shoes.
6.39 divided by 60m is .1065 multiply by 40m is 4.26 for the 40m dash. 40m is about 43 yards...or about 2.75 meters. 2.75 x .1065 is .29. 4.26 - .29 is 3.97.
1. He's not coming out of blocks.
2. He's on turf, not the best track surfaces in the world.
4.42 is not a bad time.
I question the usefulness of the 40 yard dash. How many times does anyone run 40 yards in a straight line. To me a better test would be some sort of shuttle run or obstacle type course. I think this is also included but rarely reported. The idea of offensive linemen running 40 yards is even more stupid.

While Gatlin's 40 yard dash time isn't all that impressive, considering the fact that he won Olympic Gold in the 100, he probably has better top end speed. The problem is, 40 yard speed is more important in football. I doubt we're going to see Gatlin on any NFL highlight reels. Nice verticle though.
