Northern Iowa had their pro day Monday and WR Terrell Sinkfield burned up stopwatches with an unimaginable time in the 40.
Sinkfield after running a 4.27 was clocked on his second attempt at 4.19 according to FOX Sports North. With a time that fast he was actually asked to run a third 40. Sinkfield (6’1″ 199) stumbled on his third attempt and still ran a 4.41.
“I knew it was good when I finished,” Sinkfield told FOXSportsNorth of his 4.19. “I was pretty happy, so I came back. I thought I messed up when they said go again. I’m like, ‘Dang, why do I have to run again?'”
A former track star and running back in high school, Sinkfield was barely recruited by Division I schools. Even his hometown Minnesota Golden Gophers didn’t give him an offer. That’s what made him running at Minnesota’s pro day so ironic.
Sinkfield had 43 catches for 499 yards and four touchdowns last season. Here’s a highlight reel of his from Northern Iowa. I thought he’d just be a guy running a lot of nine routes, but he’s good at fighting for the ball and adjusting to the ball in the air seeing that his quarterback was not consistent with his accuracy.
