ETSN.fm + APEC Football Recruiting Combine: Breaking Down LB Testing

Longview LB Jaylon Jackson. (Christopher R. Vinn, ETSN.fm)

The following is an in-depth statistical breakdown of the 11 linebackers that participated at the second annual ETSN.fm + APEC Football Recruiting Combine on June 1 in Tyler.

It is important to note the information below is a reflection of their testing performances and not their performance during position-specific one-on-one drills.

TESTING CATEGORIES

  • 40-yard dash — standard measure of long or “top-end” speed; the included 20- and 10-yard speeds show fast an athlete starts his 40
  • Bench press — denotes upper-body strength, which is important when assessing an athlete’s total upper-body strength potential
  • Vertical jump — measure of vertical power (more power = faster at shorter distances)
  • Broad jump — growing standard for explosion athletes
  • Pro agility — standard for lateral change of direction
  • Ladder — encompasses footwork, control, brain-to-foot communication, and reaction
  • Medball — shows upper-body explosion and reaction speed (more speed = harder punch)
  • Keiser squat — combines low-impact technology with ability to move heavy weight safely at high speeds; issues power output number (in wattage) based on amount of weight used and the speed in which it was lifted, making the target a power assessment instead of simply a strength assessment
