INDIANAPOLIS — The 40-yard dash doesn’t tell us all that much about football other than straight-line speed, but one of the few positions where that matters is at defensive back.
The first group of defensive backs ran the 40 early at the NFL Scouting Combine on Tuesday, and we have the unofficial results.
Here’s a look at the top 10:
1. Chimdi Chekwa, Ohio State: 4.33 seconds
2. Chris Culliver, South Carolina: 4.36
3. Prince Amukamara, Nebraska: 4.37
4. Ras-I Dowling, Virginia: 4.40
