Conference Timing

How do the six major conferences rank by speed? To compile these charts, SI used all applicable 40 times from the NFL combine over the past five years (1,153 players). The mean averages could allow outliers at either end of the scale to have undue influence, but that was part of the point. Each year a few players choose not to run at the combine, so their absence could skew the results.
