Amobi Okoye - Houston Texans 1st round
pick - 10th Overall '07 NFL Draft
Only 19 years old I often found myself shaking my head
at Amobi Okoye's speed and athleticism. After tweaking his hamstring at the 25
yard mark during the NFL Combine, Amobi imporved his injury plagued 5.02 Combine
40 with a 4.85 sec. 40 yard dash at his Louisville Pro Day.
For a DT at
302 lbs. to clock a 4.85 sec. 40 yard dash, this seperated himself as the top
defensive tackle in the 2007 NFL Draft.
How did Amobi run such a fast
time? He worked on lengthening his acceleration phase which lead to a dramatic
decrease in his 40 yard dash times.

acceleration phase? Find out more in Mastering the 40 Yard
