Albert O is fast... and other Combine & #NewZou notes

(more on our Queen, Karissa Schweizer, later)

First, a wholly accurate depiction of Albert O’s speed.

Albert O is wicked fast, if you didn’t already know. So fast, in fact, that he ran the fourth fastest (unofficial) 40 time of the NFL Combine since... 2003?! And the second fastest 40 of someone his size in that timeframe? Damn.

Here’s the actual footage of him running.

KB also is quite fast, but not Albert levels of fast.

In other KB news, his arm looks good.

Yasir Durant- 21 reps on the bench. Blackjack!

YaYa and Trystan Colon-Castillo are both up today at the Combine.

Cale Garrett- surely the best smile of the Combine. So happy he’s getting healthy, and hoping someone gives him a shot— he deserves it.
