I had football speed and agility testing today, and frankly, I did horribly. In the 40 yard dash, I got 7.5 seconds. How fast should I be able to run this? I am 195 lbs and 6'2". I'm just trying to get an idea of what my goal should be.

Your goal should be what you were designed to be. Nothing more, nothing less. Perhaps you are not a sprinter but could run the additional 60 yards in another 6 seconds? Perhaps even, you'll invent a cure for a form of cancer 20 years from now.
You have an, as yet, undiscovered talent. Keep your mind open and it will be manifested.
PS: When I was a mere child of 16, I could do 40 in about 8 seconds, 100 in 14 but a mile in 5:14. Today I do the 40 yard dash just slightly faster than a toad looking for bugs.
