West Virginia DL Bruce Irvin’s unofficial 40 time is ridiculous

INDIANAPOLIS — The first “wow” moment of Monday’s defensive line workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine came when the unofficial 40-yard dash time for West Virginia’s Bruce Irvin flashed across the screen.

4.43 seconds? For a guy who’s 6-foot-3 and 245 pounds? Chris Tucker and Ice Cube have something to say about that.

If Irvin’s time somehow stands, that’s right behind Baylor QB Robert Griffin III’s 4.41 and faster than two speedy running backs in Oregon’s LaMichael James and San Diego State’s Ronnie Hillman (4.45).

It can’t be.

Note: Irvin officially clocked in at 4.50. It’s no 4.43, but it’s still pretty awesome for a man his size.
