On Tuesday morning, some earth-shattering news broke via Twitter – former Penn State wide receiver KJ Hamler will not run a 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

Upon the release of the news, NFL general managers immediately descended into total panic. Without a 40-yard dash time, how is anyone to know if KJ Hamler is fast or not? How will they know whether or not it is worthwhile to spend a draft pick on his services? How will they know how he stacks up against the other 1,000 or so receiving prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft????

Luckily for those general managers, Roar Lions Roar is here to help. We get it – missing out on seeing Hamler run in a straight line with no pads, no football, and no defenders chasing him is a massive disappointment. But we think we have some evidence that can prove that he is, in fact, fast.

To all the NFL GM's out there reading this post right now (yes, even you Dave Gettleman), we sincerely hope that this provides enough evidence of Hamler's speed and that you can forgive him for not running a 40-yard dash in Indianapolis.

We promise that he'll make up for it if you draft him.
