The Crimson Tide’s freshman linebacker can run really fast.
Alabama’s football players recently went through NFL Combine-like drills as a part of their spring football program.
The number that stands out the most from the drills is probably the 40-yard dash time from five-star freshman linebacker Dylan Moses, who’s been on-campus for only two months.
He ran a sub-4.5.
Alabama has had a lot of freakish athletes during the past several years. Five-star freshman Dylan Moses may end up being one of the freakiest. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound freshman ran the 40 in 4.46 seconds. To put that into perspective, that was faster than all but two of the Tide’s wide receivers. The Louisiana native also bench-pressed 405 pounds, squatted 500 pounds and had the top power clean among linebackers (335). He’s only been on campus two months…
Alabama’s rising sophomore quarterback, Jalen Hurts, also ran a good time.
It’s not typical for a quarterback to rank among a team’s fastest players or for that quarterback to be bench-pressing more than many of the team’s wide receivers and defensive backs.
That’s what Jalen Hurts accomplished during Alabama’s spring testing.
The reigning SEC Offensive Player of the Year ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds. In comparison, the fastest time for a quarterback at this year’s NFL scouting combine was 4.54.
