Buster Skrine flew under the radar at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, despite twice being selected first team All-Southern Conference. After the NFL Scouting Combine, he’s on everyone’s radar screen. “Skrine leaves Indianapolis as the fastest man from the 2011 combine” according to Sports Illustrated.com
Skrine spent the last weeks preparing with the Parisi Speed School Combine program before he was clocked between 4.27 and 4.29 on a number of watches at the NFL Combine on Tuesday. He also clocked the fastest 60 yard shuttle in the combine, and the second fastest shuttle and L drill. On the heels of the NFLPA Texas vs the Nation game, where he showed that he could play with the top talent in the country, this athlete is getting some significant NFL attention.
"Buster Skrine was one of the most determined and dedicated athletes I have worked with over the last 12 years in my NFL Combine program. He was detail oriented and was driven to prove not only that he deserved to be at the Combine, but that he was the fastest athlete there. His attention to training, diet and recovery was the difference that allowed him to run in the 4.2's and deliver what is arguably one of the best Combine performances ever." Martin Rooney, Director Parisi Speed School NFL Combine Program: COO Parisi Franchise Systems parent company of Parisi Speed School
That sentiment is echoed by his University of Tennessee coach Ross Huesman: “He’s as good or better than everybody I’ve ever been around... I would love to have Buster for my own son. That’s the type of kid he is.”
“Tenacious” and “conscientious” are tags that have consistently been applied to this player who racked up 156 tackles, 21 pass break ups, and 5 interceptions for the Mocs and was voted a team captain his Senior year. And, of course, “fast.”
"After impressing everyone with his explosive 40-yard dashes, Skrine also looked good throughout the positional drills, showing excellent quickness, loose hips and great ball skills...Buster has unquestioned potential." (Sporting News)
Skrine said that he will bring more than just speed to whichever team drafts him in April. “I always give 110%, I take constructive criticism, and I bring a positive attitude.”
Suddenly, Skrine’s on those radar screens.
