Prospects: Ten-yard split studs and duds

After posting the 10-yard splits of some of the draft’s top potential pass rushers on Monday, I got a ton of emails, comments and requests for a look at the rest of the top 10-yard splits at positions across the board. Here’s a breakdown of the top five and bottom five split times at each position that I deemed relevant.

The 10-yard split is a great indicator of a prospect’s initial burst and explosion out of his stance, and in my opinion it does a much better job measuring overall football speed than the 40-yard dash since most NFL players are asked to play in 10-yard increments.

Remember, measuring a prospect’s 10-yard split does not guarantee success at the next level. It’s just another tool used to evaluate the first-step explosion a player is capable of producing.

Note: All times where recorded at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
