DBs Show Off Speed As NFL Combine Comes To A Close Monday

Former Washington standout John Ross ran a combine-record 4.22 in the 40-yard dash, though he hurt himself in the final few yards.

Foster, who was Alabama's leading tackler and the Butkus award victor as the nation's top defensive player, got into an altercation with a hospital worker and was sent home before team interviews Friday night. "Teez" looked nothing like he did on the football field, running a 4.62 40 yard dash, a 31 inch vertical, and only 9 reps of 225 lbs.

Samuel also turned in a 37 inch vertical which was one of the best jumps among wide receivers. Not exactly the production you are looking for from a top 10 pick. He did, however, cut his workout short due to a hip flexor injury, the latest in a long line of physical setbacks.

On Friday, Ross was asked what makes him stand out from other receivers in the 2017 draft class.

King crushed his positional drills, but he's the type of player who doesn't blow away the tape measure tests.

He said he's sorry that it felt like they were blind sided, but his decision was more-so in comparison to the other girls. The Bachelor "Women Tell All" two- hour special episode airs tonight, Monday, March 6, 2017, at 8 PM ET on ABC .

Every year a great deal of hype is placed on draft prospects who perform well on certain drills at the NFL Combine. That's what Ross did Saturday, when he clocked a 4.22-second time to beat Chris Johnson's nine-year-old record of 4.23.

Instead, Ross broke the record wearing a pair of Nikes, telling reporters, "I really can't swim that well... and I don't have a boat, so, you know, I had to run in Nikes". Since Johnson set the record back in 2008, many other prospects had come close to besting Johnson's 4.24 40-yard dash. Unfortunately for the Patriots, Belichick will likely have to trade up from No. 32 to get him because he's a first-round lock. Lamp was a top five, regardless-of-position, star this week and is now in first-round consideration. TCU's Aviante Collins topped the position group with a 4.81 time.

Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama - There are reports Allen has an arthritic shoulder, and neither his workouts nor his size (6-foot-3, 286 pounds) wowed anyone in Indy. These elements of his game verified his ranking as the No. 2 strong safety in the 2017 draft class. Consider the questions answered. It could prove very hard for Myrick to cover outside receivers; Of the top ten receivers ranked by ESPN in the 2016 season, five stand at least 6-foot-2.

The thing about Jackson is that anyone who ever saw him play would probably agree that a 4.13 was well within his limits. Ross was first-team all-conference and one of 10 semifinalist for the Biletnikoff, which goes to the nation's top receiver.

For historical purposes, let's all agree that Ross has the fastest 40 ever run at the combine, and Bo has the fastest 40 ever run by any National Football League player. "He looked like Wolverine".
