07:28 AM ET 02.19 | Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk has set the bar ... low. Seastrunk said on FOX Sports 1 that he believes he can run the 40-yard dash in faster than 4.3 seconds, which would likely make him the fastest player at the entire Combine. "My focal concern is the 40," Seastrunk said. "I set a goal in my head to run below a 4.3 and that's my goal to keep striving for. I know I can do it. It's within reach." Since 2006, only four players have run faster than 4.3 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the Combine: Chris Johnson (4.24 in 2008), Marquise Goodwin (4.27 in 2013), Jacoby Ford (4.28 in 2010) and Demarcus Van **** (4.28 in 2011). All four of those players weighed less than 200 pounds at the Combine, and Seastrunk says he can turn heads by running a sub-4.3-second 40-yard dash at 210 pounds.

But can he run routes?

If he can stay healthy, this kid could be really good. I just don't know if he can stay healthy.

And he has a cool name.

Demarcus Van ****....What four letter word could that have been. got to look that one up. OK. Did not know d+y+k+e.

No relation to Manny Sistrunk. Now there was a piece of work. I guess not all Strunks are created equal.

Demarcus Van ****. that is just plain wrong. You can grow one but you cannot be one? so much for diversity.

I would be more concerned on how well he breaks tackles and gets through the line. A lot has to happen before you can use that speed in open field.

I watched him play some. He has a good push and good pad level, runs with attitude.

Imagine if Dick Van **** were a football player.

February 19, 2014  10:09 AM ET

So, can we not talk about Dick Van ****?

February 19, 2014  10:10 AM ET

Wow, a guy can't even have a name anymore.

I have heard the joke for years about how he wouldnt be able to use his own name after a point with the PC nonsense. I guess jokes really are based on facts at some point.

His change of direction moves remind me of Barry Sanders.

We would have seen more of him if not for the transfer from Oregon to Baylor.

Didn't Oakland have an Otis Sistrunk or was his name spelled differently ?
