Hoping to see something that looks like basketball

They just drafted some reasonable speed at TE. Cam Newton recorded a 4.59 40 when young. Stidham 4.81. Brady was a 5.17. Harry an unofficial 4.53 (not slow). Vitale, at FB is faster than Burkhead and almost as fast as other backs. Damiere Byrd ran a blazing 4.25 40 officially and was told he ran a 4.16 at pro day.So, are you saying, in a speed game, you don't have speed at QB, RB, WR or TE?
Point is, Bill has been burned by going for speed players who aren't good football players. Edelman isn't that fast. Welker wasn't very fast. Deion Branch wasn't very fast. Troy Brown wasn't very fast. I think speed is most lacking at RB, where the group is collectively OK, but lacks any change of pace speed back. Even the new little guy JJ Taylor isn't all that fast.
