Yes, and Waylee would have been the eighth fastest time in the NFL in 2020.

Could be wrong, but I’m gonna guess this was just in shorts and a T, not full pads. Would make a decent difference. But Waylee is legit fast.

I think these speeds were recorded during practice - so not during 40 yard dash times.

Waylee has real speed. The other guys are just “fast”.

A few surprises on that list. I did not know Gandy could run like that. Same with Rodgers.

Wow. That was unexpected. Didn't think Waylee was that damn fast!

To expand on Gandy...if he can run...why the heck does he give every receiver he faces an 8 yard cushion?!?!? That defense made no sense when it was happening...makes even less sense now. It had to be gameplan.

Who knows? Is it the coaching? Was it the scheme? He's not exactly big enough to be pressing up on WRs.

I'm thinking it was all coaching based on the game plan they set up. I don't believe anyone could play that stupidly play after play and game after game unless they were instructed to do it. Perhaps it was weaknesses the coaches saw in the players, but it was a stupid scheme nonetheless. Sometimes you just have to give it all and play less conservatively.

Anyone can press - no one is saying the cornered needed to play bump. They literally just needed to press to prevent the pitch and catch that melted us all season.

Some is DC protecting a young player. As he gets experience. , he will press more. When Rattin was thrown in at LB, it was a very vanilla defense. With experience you can expand y ur playbook

But with our style of defense we didn’t need our corners to bail. We were literally trying to force the quick pass - but for some reason, that no one can explain, we also played our corners soft...

It was literally the worst scheme anyone could come up with. It didn’t protect anyone.

If the goal of the DC was to protect and bail the linebackers should have all been flying in to those pass lanes. But they didn’t. It wasn’t drawn that way.

It was so disjointed that I still have concerns that no matter how the kids out there grow that some idiotic scheme will sink this team on D.

I agree with you. Doesn't matter how fast, strong or athletic we are. If the scheme and playcall sucks, nothing changes. I miss Kevin Kane and Jeff Knowles.

Drunker is a freshman and playing like one. From what I have heard needs some seasoning.

Not saying he will never be great but he came in as the highest rated player in NIU history. If he was that highly rated, he should show more than to be sitting behind 3 other RBs

Being a freshman, being injured, and getting his sea legs under him is no crime.

He’s probably getting his body back up to speed and now he needs reps. Waylee got a ton of reps last season and he really benefited from it.

I think Waylee is special, so being behind him on the depth chart is not bad.

When brown steps on campus he will be the highest rated recruit NIU has ever had, and I fully expect him to be behind Waylee, Collins, “Rat Dog”, and maybe ducker

Cream roses to the top. Waylee is special he stepped up. Chad Span was special, he went from walk on to starting quickly. Rudolph went from PWO to excellent returner and very good receiver. Cream roses.
