Oklahoma’s Brown pulls up lame; Spiller, Best fly


INDIANAPOLIS — Oklahoma RB Chris Brown limped back to the sideline following his first 40-yard dash Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine. A few moments later, it was announced that Brown had suffered a strained hamstring and was “done.”

While not widely considered one of the elite draft-eligible backs, Brown could have helped his stock by posting a phenomenal time.

One player who appeared from the eye test to be exceptionally fast was Clemson’s C.J. Spiller. He is NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock‘s top-rated running back, and he showed why as he rocketed down the field in a second-best time of 4.37 seconds.

California’s Jahvid Best posted the best time at 4.35, and Auburn’s Ben Tate (4.43), Fresno State’s Ryan Mathews (4.45), USC’s Joe McKnight (4.47) and Tennessee’s Montario Hardesty (4.49) all had sub-4.5 times.
