Videos of Former Georgia Tech Players in the NFL Combine: T.J. Barnes and Rod Sweeting

New, comments

Because Spring Football isn't just about current Tech players, I found a couple of highlight videos for Georgia Tech's two participants in February's NFL Combine.

Not only is T.J. Barnes a great athlete, he's also a gentleman and a scholar.

Ever think you'd see a 350-pound man go 8 feet in a single bound, starting from a stand still? Have you ever seen a 350-pound man almost 2 feet off the ground? Have you ever seen a 350-pound man start from a dead stop and run 40 yards in barely more than 5 seconds? Yeah, for his size, T.J. Barnes is pretty damn impressive. That counts for interviews, too, where he's said to be quite impressive relative to most guys who play his position.

Oh, and let's not forget about Rod Sweeting, who ran a blazing 4.42 in the 40-yard dash, jumped over TEN FEET in a single bound, and then leaped over 3 feet in the air in the standing jump. Sweeting has some incredible physical gifts, as well. I watched his video, and only had one thought...

Impressed by what you see here, Tech fans? Think these two could make a difference for a couple of teams in the NFL?
