Fact: Borges showed up and watched him throw. Not a Known Fact but Highly Likely: Speight threw a 20 yard out for Coach Borges. Fact: Coach Borges offered. I am going to deduce his arm strength is not an issue. Throwing under pressure and mechanical issues with delivery can affect the velocity of throws, and coaching can fix those problems. I am going with the judgment of the coaches on this one.
