*Explosive Lower Body Strength Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s vertical, broad jump and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Speed Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s 40-yard dash and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Flexibility Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s short shuttle, 3-Cone and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

Metric Recommendation: T.J. Lang is one of the guards who checks all the boxes of a special guard prospect. His elite flexibility with above average speed is a deadly combination. His best fit is a power scheme where his speed and flexibility can be utilized more often in the open field. However, he still has the explosiveness to work well in ZBS schemes. Along with his above average height and length for a guard too.

You run, don’t walk to pay him his money.
