WRs Austin, Goodwin blaze in 40

Posted by Chris Brown on February 24, 2013 – 10:07 am

The two wide receivers expected to run fast 40 times did not disappoint here at the NFL Combine on Sunday morning.

West Virginia WR Tavon Austin and Texas WR Marquise Goodwin both ran sub-4.3 40 times as both clocked in at 4.25 on their first runs.

Goodwin’s number might not have been as eye popping knowing he is a former Olympic sprinter. Austin was known to be fast, but this time might have even caught scouts off guard.

Each of them ran a second 40 that was “slower” than their first. Goodwin ran a 4.29 and Austin clocked a 4.31. Austin could sneak into the bottom of round one as he is a dynamic all-purpose threat despite being small in stature. Goodwin also is not a big receiver, but is deemed as more of a late day two draft choice.
