### Heron O’Neal RAS

Heron O’Neal went undrafted for the NFL out of Western Michigan in 1998.

He recorded a Relative Athletic Score of 8.42, 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 6017 that season, recorded as XYYZ where X is feet, YY is inches, and Z is eighths of an inch. That correlates to 6 feet, 1 and 7/8 of an inch or 73.875 inches, or 187.6425 centimeters. This correlates to a 8.33 score out of 10.0.

He recorded a weight of 192 in pounds, which is approximately 87 kilograms. This correlates to a 3.17 score out of 10.0.

Based on his weight, he has a projected 40 yard dash time of 4.5. This is calculated by taking 0.00554 multiplied by his weight and then adding 3.433.

At the Combine, he recorded a 40 yard dash of 4.62 seconds. This was a difference of 0.12 seconds from his projected time. This forty time correlates to a 6.58 score out of 10.0.

Using Bill Barnwell’s calculation, this Combine 40 time gave him a Speed Score of 84.29.

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 2.67 seconds. This correlates to a 7.73 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 1.6 seconds. This correlates to a 7.73 score out of 10.0.

The time he traveled the first ten yards at his pro day was 1.6 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 225.0. 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.
