    40 times translated into speed ratings

    I got a list of 40 times broken down into a speed rating from OS. In years past (and presumably this year as well) 40 times use a direct linear translation into speed for recruits. Because of this, if you look at a recruit's speed it might say B+ for speed, but if you look at his 4.42 40 time, you know that he'll have 90 speed as a FR.

    Caveat:
    This is all based on a list that someone else made (I'm not going to take the time to do it myself, especially since I have no reason to doubt the quality of this list) and there's always a chance that they made it more random (such that 2 guys with 4.42 40 times might be 89 or 91 speed). The list would be easy enough to do. Just write down everyone's 40 times and then sim the season. Then check out the recruits speed at the beginning of the next year. In the end, at best it's just a more accurate representation of the letter grades and at worse, I'll might end up with an 88 speed guy when the chart said it should've been a 90.

    Here's the list:
    4.24 99
    4.26 98
    4.28 97
    4.30 96
    4.32 95
    4.34 94
    4.36 93
    4.38 92
    4.40 91
    4.42 90
    4.44 89
    4.46 88
    4.48 87
    4.50 86
    4.52 85
    4.54 84
    4.56 83
    4.58 82

    4.62 80

    This is from '10. I'm sure they mappings are different for '12, but it'd be easy to chart.

    Edwin Baker is listed as running a 4.3, yet has 88 speed in this game. Rubbish.
