Jake Carlock as some form of unconfined LB - speed?

Bob in Newburgh : 8/11/2019 12:11 pm
Can not seem to find athletic info on him.

Anyone know whether he comfortably runs sub 4.7 and could you please provide source.

Thanks in advance.

I never found a reliable 40-time on him.
I can't find his 40 time, but he ran pretty well on his way to the end

That's because he has a "high motor".

for someone who played safety (albeit in not great competition) speed would not the the chief worry moving to LB?

It’s clear he’s a talented man of integrity and character

. Seems like we found a great way of using him as an edge rusher though. Something that he didn't do as much of in High School and college. He's rangy and active, so having him as close to the action/ball as possible could be a real asset.

Is this a new English dialect I'm unfamiliar with. I was able to infer the meaning from context but my brain balked at it upon first reading.

Did not play safety. His junior season he played purely nickel corner and did come off the field on “heavy” situations. Senior season he played the rover role. Never had his hand in the dirty and played off the los. Since college season ended he easily put on 10-15 lbs of muscle. He was 225 in college. Now I would guess he’s nearing 240

To the best of my knowledge - Giants have not named the position

Some college programs call a position somewhat like this a "rover".

Sorry I did not use an American sound bite.
Considering that...

He is a converted safety I think it's safe to say he's got above average speed at the position.
Maybe he’ll be the

Any comparison to Brad Van Pelt?
He's not terribly fast  
JonC : 8/12/2019 8:47 am : link
My guess is not sub 4.7
What are his chances

To make the 53?
The only insight I have on Carlock, aside from what Tuckrule noted abo  
BlueLou'sBack : 8/12/2019 9:46 am : link
- that Carlock looks to be a solid 240# now or thereabouts - is that he was among the 20 or so nominees for the Cliff Harris Award last year.

That's the award for the best D II defensive player that Ballentine won.

He must've had a whale of a senior season.
