We have a new time to beat at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Washington wide receiver John Ross ran his 40 at Lucas Oil Stadium and burned up the turf, with his unofficial time coming in at 4.22 seconds. That is 0.02 seconds faster than the previous fastest time in Combine history, which belonged to running back Chris Johnson. The time was later confirmed, giving Ross the fastest time since Combine results began to be tracked closely in 2003.
Ross has been thought of as a possible first-round pick; this time will probably solidify him on day one of the 2017 NFL Draft.
UPDATE: Ross did not run his 40 a second time, as it appeared that he pulled up with some discomfort as he crossed the finish line on his first attempt. He decided to pull himself out of all remaining drills, including both position work and other individual skills like the vertical jump and 3-cone.
