This is just amazing. A physical comparison of Bucs QB Jameis Winston and Chiefs NT Dontari Poe:
Jameis Winston: 4.97 40-yard, 28.5" vertical, 103" broad jump, 231lbs Dontari Poe: 4.98 40-yard, 29" vertical, 105" broad jump, 346lbs— Chris Hale (@heisenbeers) December 10, 2015
Yeah, yeah, it doesn't mean anything. Winston seems like a smart runner, like Alex Smith, so his athleticism isn't as necessary. Still, isn't this unbelievable? It really shows you how insane Dontari Poe's 2012 Combine showing was when he put up numbers like this. NFL teams were already aware of him but I'm sure that the Combine performance pushed him up on some boards -- even if we know that good Combine numbers don't mean you'll be a good NFL player.
The next step for Poe is continuing to work on his ball-handling skills, given he's the best running back in the NFL.
