Fast Times in Indy but Not That Fast

As always there were some fast times at the Indianapolis NFL Combine in Day 2 of workouts as the wide receivers and running backs took to the turf along with the quarterbacks.  Times were not as fast as last year’s times as C.J. Spiller, Jacoby Ford and Trindon Holiday set the turf on fire.

No one did anything that would land them on my Sub 4.2 forty yard dash list but nevertheless,  let’s take a look at the bests of the day.

Top QB – 40 yard dashers

Cam Newton and Jake Locker turned in 4.59 times for the QB’s but Virginia Tech’s Tyrod Taylor was your fastest with a time of 4.51.

Top RB – 40 yard dashers

U. Conn’s Jordan Todman and Kentucky’s Derrick Locke were impressive with 4.40 times.  Mario Fannin of Auburn beat them both with a 4.38 but the fastest of the day went to Darel Scott of Maryland who heated it up with a 4.34.

Top WR – 40 yard dashers

Leonard Hankerson surprised with a 4.43 as did Julio Jones with his 4.39 but it was a pair of small schoolers, Ricardo Lockette (Ft. Valley St.) and Edmund Gates (Abilene Christian) that were the fastest at 4.37.
