Kinda old stats, but I can only imagine he's gotten faster....he's from my neighboring high school and the kid was an absolute stud...glad to see he's continued his success in college and should do so in the NFl...just hope he goes somewhere with a halfway decent O-line!

I would say just from watching him he probably runs around a high 4.3 to 4.4 now.

There is a massive difference between 40 time and game speed.

I'd have to agree that he runs in the 4.3 range when at top speed....He is one of those rare talents who can shift into that extra gear when he breaks into the open field....As Madden would say, "If he's even, he's leavin'"....He is sensational..I'm growing tired of people trying to compare him to other great college backs. He truly is a rare talent....There are no comparisons.....If I had to compare him to someone though I'd say hes a blend of Sanders and Faulk...Versatile and extremely explosive.

I'm a New Orleans Saints fan and even though we just signed Deuce to a huge contract, I still would not mind seeing him sporting black and gold on Sundays.

I would love to see Bush in Jet green next year. I'm also a big ND fan. ND played as well as they could play against SC but the kid Bush was playing the game on another level. The absolute difference in the game. Other wordly vision and cutting. With Curtis wearing down and Lamont now wearing silver and black, I'll pray they take him. Of course the Jets could use Leinart just as badly but I'm not as confident in him being a Pro Bowler like Bush.

everyone is saying that Bush needs a decent o line to succeed. That IMO is the beauty of Bush, he DOESNT need an o line to succeed.

Take Baltimore for example, they built their O Line to run. huge guys who just push the D Line backwards 3 yards every play and hope their back can get 1 or 2 more on top of that.

Bush wont be that sort of runner, and thus you dont need that sort of O Line, Bush excells because you can move him anywhere, split him out wide, motion him, screens to him, dumps to him, etc. you really wont see this guy bangin away inbetween the tackles all that much thus the OLine he needs is negligable, i mean how hard is it to let the D through and set up a screen?

Whoever drafts Bush will be well advised to use him as he was used at USC, let him touch the ball 20 times a game, but 5 are screens, 5 are pitches, 5 times hes split out wide and 5 times he runs inside.

Whoever drafts Bush should have another RB on the roster who can run inside. I dont think the texans would take him, but the Jets (should they get him) should keep Blaylock, and the Niners should keep either Barlow or Gore (heck keep both).

So, after all that rambling.... Bush doesnt need an Oline because he prolly wont be runnin through their holes all that much, he makes his own space. The Oline on the team with Bush should re-gear themselves into a pass protecting maching (like indy).
