How many linebacker can run a true sub 4.4 in this day of age? Alvin
Moore certainly can as he consistently ran a sub 4.4 forty all spring and

take into consideration that he has cornerback quickness (4.08 short shuttle)
this allows him to change directions and explode through the hole in a hick

Speed and athleticism is a key factor for anyone's game that wants to play
in the SEC one day but you also have to be tough as nails. This is where A.J.

But give A.J. a couple years in a college weight program and he will be a 225-pound
Don't be surprised if you see this young man have a long career in the league
