The on-field workouts for the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine kick off this Friday, and a number of former college football players will be looking to make their NFL dreams a reality. One of the most popular, and sometimes one of the most crucial on-field events that participants go through is the 40-yard dash. The player who owns the current record for the fastest 40-yard dash time is Arizona Cardinals running back Chris Johnson, who ran a 4.24 40-yard dash in 2008 before getting drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the first round.
NFL Media Analyst Daniel Jeremiah recently released his list of five possible candidates who could potentially break Johnson’s record in this year’s Combine on NFL.com. Check out the list of potential candidates below — all are cornerbacks and wide receivers, and a couple of them could be flying under the radar.
1) Kolby Listenbee, WR, TCU
2) LeShaun Sims, CB, Southern Utah
3) Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame
4) Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State
5) Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State
The workouts for wide receivers will take place on Friday morning, where as defensive backs will go Monday, Feb. 29.
