Baylor QB Robert Griffin III has run the third-fastest 40-yard dash so far at the NFL Scouting Combine. Timed at an unofficial 4.38 seconds, he is tied with WR TJ Graham (NC State), just behind Miami WR Travis Benjamin (4.32) and the fastest (so far), Georgia Tech WR Stephen Hill (4.30). Seeing a QB ranked among the fastest players reminds us of some guy from Virginia Tech named Vick who ended up being the top pick in the draft a while back.
Hill has been mentioned in some circles as being a great fit with the Baltimore Ravens, as he stands 6'4" and weighs 215 pounds, yet is still among the fastest players in the country, which would make him a matchup nightmare for most defensive backs.According to his analysis, he may have averaged around 30 yards a catch as a senior, but reportedly dropped as many big balls as he caught and needs a lot of polishing before he can be a legitimate star at the next level.
As far as the 40-yard dash, other notables wide receiver times included Notre Dame's Michael Floyd (4.42), Arkansas' Joe Adams (4.44), although there are still a bunch more wideouts whose results have not been posted as of this writing.At the same time, the NFL has proved that as exciting an event as the dash remains, it is not any indication of a player's ultimate success once they get onto the field as a pro.
