Prospect of the Day - Louis Nix III
Ben was never fast. And if you want to know why there may be any speed difference, just take a look at a pic of Ben as a rookie and compare it to now. I am not saying he is fat, just thicker. The size of his beer can head alone is enough to add a tenth of a second to his 40 time.
