Combine Metrics: Speed Scores, Lateral Agility **UPDATED**

4

This spreadsheet can be edited by anyone. Feel free to add data for the players you follow. FO on speed scores ... "Speed scores been computed for every draft since 1999, and it's done a better job of predicting NFL success on a per-carry and cumulative basis than any other player statistic heading into the pros, including the raw 40-yard dash time. Approximately 20 percent of a player's performance as a pro can be explained by what happens in less than five seconds, months before he ever steps on a pro field…" http://www.profootballweekly.com/2009/04/06/lateral-agility-trumps-40-yard-speed-on-football-f "Despite popular beliefs, the 20-yard shuttle is a much more functional test of what a player is asked to do on the football field than the 40-yard dash, given that it better measures how quickly a player can change direction, how loose he is in the hips, how easily he can bend and how fast he can play the game in short areas, where most action occurs. By subtracting the 20-yard shuttle time from the straight-line 40-time, as many teams tend to do as a gauge of lateral agility, evaluators can even better gauge a player's lateral agility than they can simply with short shuttle times, as the differential puts into perspective both long speed and short-area quickness.
