As was blogged earlier Sunday, wide receivers put up some blazing times in the 40-yard dash.
Now the official results are in.
Maryland WR Darrius Heyward-Bey posted the fastest official time Sunday at 4.30 seconds. His time is tied for the second-fastest mark among receivers since 2000, trailing only the 4.28 posted by Hampton’s Jerome Mathis in 2005. Kansas State’s Yamon Figurs also had a 4.30 run in 2007.
Five receivers posted sub-4.40 marks Sunday. Impressive.
Mississippi’s Mike Wallace had the second-fastest time at 4.33, followed closely by Abilene Christian’s Johnny Knox (4.34). Penn State’s Deon Butler (4.38) and Arizona’s Mike Thomas (4.40) rounded out the top five.
The top 10 40-yard dash times for all positions will be posted among the combine’s top performers.
