Typically, Combines times are regarded as more official  
JonC : 5/14/2018 8:19 am : link
but players will often refer to their fastest time overall.

4.31 was probably run at his pro day or some other LSU activity, and the non-Combines times are notoriously faster.

still plenty fast..
a quick google  
JonC : 5/14/2018 8:24 am : link
his official 40 at the Combines was 4.43 and he apparently ran an unofficial 4.31 ...

OBJ has lead feet compared to SB's 4.4.
I donít know if there is a measurable...  
bw in dc : 5/14/2018 8:40 am : link
but itís clear to my eyes that OBJís uniqueness is his ability to get to top end speed quicker than anyone Iíve seen since Deion.

That is why heís the threat every time. His initial burst creates instant separation that just overwhelms defenders.

So whether heís 4.31 or 4.43, both are high quality, itís less relevant than his god given ability in that first five yards.

Agreed. It is his quickness more than flat-out speed that makes him elite. Don't get me wrong, he is very fast, but he is arguably the quickest player in the league.
I remember watching it live and he ran it 2x  
est1986 : 5/14/2018 8:58 am : link
4.31 the first time and 4.40 the second time... but apparently the time they post when you watch it live is unofficial... and it came back as a 4.43 which we all know is probably bullshit... the NFL network official time is not the official time the Giants recorded so itís anyones guess... we all know Beckham has one of the very best game speedís we have ever seen in a blue uniform.
The 40 times from the combine

And pro days are fun - but there are plenty of track stars that can't play a lick of football.

But show me in pads... carrying the ball...
He may have at one time.  
Giant John : 5/14/2018 9:09 am : link
Wonder what his 40 time is today?
either way  
Chuck Q : 5/14/2018 9:11 am : link
4.31 or 4.43 - with a football in his hands and just a squeeze of green daylight in front of him no one is going to catch him.
I don't care what his 40 time is  
Greg from LI : 5/14/2018 9:16 am : link
I've never seen anyone run him down from behind, so his speed must be good enough.
Only thing that matters is that he is routinely the fastest guy on the  
Brown Recluse : 5/14/2018 9:17 am : link
field. Once he gets a step on you, its over. Might as well save your energy for the next play.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Odell Beckham will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.

Coach Red Beaulieu : 5/14/2018 9:25 am : link
Running on a track and in a live football game is like the difference between fighting in a padded octagon in your underwear and fighting in the streets. Maybe fighting in your swimsuit on a beach is similar.
OBJ vs. Barkley

If they had a race,I'd bet on OBJ despite the combine times.

False! If OBJ and Barkley ran as fast as they can, next to each other, the force of their awesomeness would change the rotation of the Earth, either causing us all to move into the future or the past, depending on which way they were running.
I hope..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 5/14/2018 10:54 am : link
they don't make us revisit last season!!!
didn't they do a Barkley-OBJ  
SHO'NUFF : 5/14/2018 11:37 am : link
side-by-side simulcast of their combine 40 yard dash... and Saquon came out ahead?
Ten and twenty yard times are more important  
Vanzetti : 5/14/2018 11:50 am : link
But also harder to measure accurately

Odellís acceleration is off the charts. He regularly splits defenders like nobody else in the league
How you could watch OBJ and think he was a 4.43 guy  
BillT : 5/14/2018 1:04 pm : link
Is hard to believe. He is pretty obviously the fastest guy on the field in almost every game he plays. He makes DBs who run in the 4.4s look like they're standing still. If he doesn't run low 4.3s no one ever has.
Unreal  
PaulN : 5/14/2018 1:38 pm : link
What is the fucking point of this, we need to find out if he is fast? LOL, unreal.
Who gives a shit about the the past?  
TMS : 5/15/2018 7:53 pm : link
How fast is he now ? Just coming back from missing the whole season with a leg injury s a huge question. His ability to beat coverage and get separation is huge. Does he still have it or not is the big question. We know he was all world before but is he now??? Wants QB $$$ is he worth it ? DG will have to make that call. What is his 40 and three cone times now. Big decisions here. Hope he still has it.
my official time is a full second  
madgiantscow009 : 5/15/2018 7:57 pm : link
slower than my unofficial time.
