Deone Bucannon ran 40 yards in 4 and a half seconds yesterday. A 4.49 second 40 yard dash translates to roughly 18.2 MPH. Here's a list of things that Deone Bucannon can (theoretically) beat in a 40 yard dash*.
*This is how this works. Don't argue with me. I took a math a couple of semesters ago. I know what I'm talking about.
Things Bucannon would beat in a race:
Mississippi State Offensive Lineman Gabe Jackson - 15 MPH
Marquess Wilson - 18.1 MPH
A Six-Lined race runner (lizard) - 18 MPH
A Squirrel - 12 MPH
Roger Banister (Runner of the first 4 minute mile) - 15 MPH
Average 40 time of every CougCenter author combined (estimated) - 5 MPH (Note: Take out myself and probably Preston and they would beat Deone. Sandritter and Sherwood are deceptively fast.)
Cars in some school zones - 15 MPH
The Canter of a horse - 10-17 MPH
Tom Brady - 15.5 MPH
Washington Drivers in the Fast Lane - 15 MPH (If we lucky, am I right?)
Three Toed Sloth - 3 MPH
Jesus Montero - See: Three Toed Sloth
Things Bucannon would lose to in a race:
Dale Earnhardt Jr. in Daytona 500 (average) - 145.3 MPH
Light - 670,616,629 MPH
The first list is much bigger.
