Quandry with OLBs part 2 Free Agency and other possiabilities


            In joeklecko's post - http://www.ganggreennation.com/2011/4/12/2106224/the-quandry-with-olbs
he put out some intresting things regaurding OLB's potential to bust with something the original writer called his Twitch number. He started by measuring a players explosive power and if that number was greater than 1.05 then he went ahead and measured out their Twitch number.

Original Writer - http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=439601

  For fun/bordam I decided to use the formula for the Twitch on Potential LBs the jets could pick up or add to the 53 man roster, I didnt bother attempting to figure out the explosive power due to the fact I didnt know how he wrote in the broad jump into the equation and didnt have a control to experiment. All numbers for players I found on NFLDraftScout.com.

Explosive Power = (Vertical + 3.5 * broad jump) * (weight/height)/3000 If anyone wants to attempt to figure that out

Twitch = Shuttle - 2 * 10 yd split - (1.60 - 10 yd split)
