Desmond King RAS
Desmond King was drafted by Chargers with pick 151 in round 5 in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Iowa.
He recorded a Relative Athletic Score of 6.6, out of a possible 10.0. RAS is a composite metric on a 0 to 10 scale based on the average of all of the percentile for each of the metrics the player completed either at the Combine or pro day.
He had a recorded height of 5097 that season, recorded as XYYZ where X is feet, YY is inches, and Z is eighths of an inch. That correlates to 5 feet, 9 and 7/8 of an inch or 69.875 inches, or 177.48250000000002 centimeters. This correlates to a 0.86 score out of 10.0.
He recorded a weight of 201 in pounds, which is approximately 91 kilograms. This correlates to a 5.19 score out of 10.0.
Based on his weight, he has a projected 40 yard dash time of 4.55. This is calculated by taking 0.00554 multiplied by his weight and then adding 3.433.
This player did not have a recorded 40 yard dash for the Combine in the RAS database.
At his pro day, he recorded a 40 yard dash of 4.6 seconds. This correlates to a 4.91 score out of 10.0.
Using Bill Barnwell’s calculation, this Combine 40 time gave him a Speed Score of 89.78.
The time traveled between the 20 and 40 yard lines is known as the Flying Twenty. As the distance is also known, we can calculate the player’s speed over that distance. The time he traveled the last twenty yards at his pro day was 1.96 seconds. Over 20 yards, we can calculate his speed in yards per second to 10.2. Taking into account the distance in feet (60 feet), we can calculate his speed in feet per second to 30.61. Breaking it down further, we can calculate his speed in inches per second to 367.35. Knowing the feet per second of 30.61, we can calculate the approximate miles per hour by multiplying that value by 0.681818 to give us a calculated MPH of 20.9 in the last 20 yards of his run.
This player did not have a recorded 20 yard split for the Combine in the RAS database.
At his pro day, he recorded a 20 yard split of 2.64 seconds. This correlates to a 6.92 score out of 10.0.
We can calculate the speed traveled over the second ten yards of the 40 yard dash easily, as the distance and time are both known. The time he traveled the second ten yards at his pro day was 1.07 seconds. Over 10 yards, we can calculate his speed in yards per second to 9.35. Taking into account the distance in feet (30 feet), we can calculate his speed in feet per second to 28.04. Breaking it down further, we can calculate his speed in inches per second to 336.45. Knowing the feet per second of 28.04, we can calculate the approximate miles per hour by multiplying that value by 0.681818 to give us a calculated MPH of 19.1 in the second ten yards of his run.
This player did not have a recorded 10 yard split for the Combine in the RAS database.
At his pro day, he recorded a 10 yard split of 1.57 seconds. This correlates to a 7.7 score out of 10.0.
The time he traveled the first ten yards at his pro day was 1.57 seconds. Over 10 yards, we can calculate his speed in yards per second to 6.0. Taking into account the distance in feet (30 feet), we can calculate his speed in feet per second to 19.0. Breaking it down further, we can calculate his speed in inches per second to 229.0. Knowing the feet per second of 19.0, we can calculate the approximate miles per hour by multiplying that value by 0.681818 to give us a calculated MPH of 13.0 in the first ten yards of his run.
This player did not have a recorded bench press for the Combine in the RAS database.
At his pro day, he recorded a bench press of 21 repetitions of 225 pounds. This correlates to a 9.15 score out of 10.0.
At the Combine, he recorded a vertical jump of 34.0 inches. This correlates to a 4.0 score out of 10.0.
At his pro day, he recorded a vertical jump of 36.0 seconds. Because he also recorded this metric at the Combine, his pro day did not count towards his RAS.
At the Combine, he recorded a broad jump of 909, which is recorded as FII or FFII . where F is feet and I is inches. This correlates to a 3.75 score out of 10.0.
At the Combine, he recorded a 5105 or 20 yard short shuttle of 4.18 seconds. This correlates to a 6.96 score out of 10.0.
At the Combine, he recorded a 3 cone L drill of 6.67 seconds. This correlates to a 9.58 score out of 10.0.
