The point is he is still fast as **** for a left tackle.
Well a tenth of a second is a fairly significant difference in a short distance like a 40 yard sprint.
I just find it humorous that you believed that any NFL lineman would take a full tenth off their 40 time after 4 (IIRC) years in the NFL, seeing as during the combine and pro day, they are doing **** tons of work just to shave hundredths of a second off their time to improve their draft stock, and they practice their starting technique and such so damn much. NFL players don't ever run a 40 yard dash after the day they get drafted.
