Some time ago there was a discussion about what makes a fast middle linebacker, this eventually lead to the topic of the average speed for each position. Now this Some Clarification is in Order will be much shorter and to the point, simply it will answer that question: What is the average 40 time by position?

I won't make this long but I should say this obviously not perfect since some players don't test well on their 40 times and some are faster than others over 20 or 60 yards but since the 40 yard dash is actually a fairly good measurement of a player's overall speed, I'll stick with it, especially since that is the most often mentioned and measured at the combine as well as here at Mile High Report.
