His first attempt went for an unofficial 4.79.

Thoughts on that time Chris??
I would think he would have liked to have run better. Not a horrible time, though.
This guy is tumbling down draft boards. Lucky to go higher than mid-2nd round if he keeps this up
Not guilty y'all got to feel me

4.81 in second attempt.
The whole 40 yd dash time thingy is probably the most over-hyped BS test regarding how good a player may or may not be. And it is especially so in relation to certain positions, DE being one.
Matters what his 10-yard split was (quickness off the snap). His shuttle and three cone (COD) will hold more water for him. Also, film don't lie.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
4.83 in the 40-yard dash officially per NFL.com.
He also had 25 reps on the bench, a 31 inch vertical, and 111 inch broad jump.
The 4.83 is tied for 13th best time among DL.
I think the NFL is just looking for your to be within a certain range. I don't know that a fast 40 matters all that much, but a really slow one does.
40 times....If a DE is running in the 4.65-4.75 range you are plenty fast.
QB-Does not matter
That is the best range you can have for each position. Any defensive end that EVER cracks 4.6 is flying...You have a DE running 4.5....Been doing combines for over ten years and only 2 kids have ever run in the 4.4 range. Gio Bernard ran 4.5 at our combine....Guess what he ran the same thing at the NFL combine. Guys 40 times are not getting much better. Noel Devine ran a 4.45 at our combine and was flying....Never seen a kid move that quickly. Desean Jackson ran a 4.45 at one of our combines. Of course you have these made up numbers like 4.2....Please those numbers are not legit...not unless you are U. Bolt.
Just felt like messing with some people today. Boring Monday at work
Exactly. I think the 10 and the shuttle are much more important than the 40 for a DE. 40 will be more important at WR and DB specifically (RB to some extent)...sometimes at LB depending on scheme.
A fast 40 time for a DL will only really show if a guy is an athletic freak, which Bjoern really is not. We knew that already.
Still a surefire first round pick. Top half IMO.
