Few receivers can hang with RGIII’s speed

INDIANAPOLIS — Just to put Robert Griffin III‘s unofficial 40-yard dash time of 4.38 seconds in perspective, only four wide receivers ran faster Sunday morning at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Georgia Tech’s Stephen Hill had the fastest time of the group with a 4.30. The other three speedsters included Miami’s Travis Benjamin (4.32), N.C. State’s T.J. Graham (4.35) and Wake Forest’s Chris Givens (4.37), with one more group of receivers still to run.

Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd, one of the top receiver prospects here, clocked in at 4.42.

UPDATE: Official times are in, and Hill finished at 4.36, tied with Benjamin and Stanford’s Chris Owusu for the fastest 40 by a receiver at this year’s combine. Graham and Given officially ran in 4.41, and Floyd clocked in at 4.47.
