Did you by chance run them in 27 or 30 yard dashes?  The reason you can't get a reply is because nobody uses 40 yard times at the youth level.  Instead, 27 yards is half the width of 100 yard field so this gives you their times, both offensively and defensively, for sideline to sideline.  Soccer fields (which many of us practice on) also use 9 yard field markings, so three lines equals 27 yards.  If you're lucky and have an actual marked football field, most will then use 30 yards.  Also, you should run them three times and throw out best and worst times.  Finally, you want the same person running the stopwatch for the whole team.  If the person holding the watch changes, so do the times.

Our league times them in the 40 during the coaches evaluation. They post the times afterwards.
Next season I will try and run it again, I had two volunteer dads assisting me this season and they just didn't catch on to the DC46. They were trying to learn it themselves while teaching it. Next season i'll have the coaches prepped and ready to teach it.

I have the same age group this year plus a few light 9's. I am not the HC but hope to convince him to run it.
I have found that at the younger levels even 1yr of experience, maturity and aggressiveness really make a big difference. The drilling is really where you will need to make your decisions. Obviously if a kid is to slow he will not make the cut, but a few 10ths on a chart is not too important at this age. I have 6-7 kids coming back that were 7 and all but 1 I expect will start on Defense due to the rest are either new or coming up from flag and could take 2 or 3 games into season before they get really aggressive.

Also, last time I had this age group and could run the 46, we did not have a great nose and it did not hurt us to much.
I am not sure I want to waste a LB type kid there if I do not have 1 to spare. We put best big and fast at DE but maybe LB would have been been better for our top 2. Then most experienced big hitter at Mike. I found a good fast safety helped make TD saving tackles on the sidelines but some (Mahonz) use the safety as another LB with the young ones.
