The running backs don’t have their workouts until Sunday, but a few of them have some lofty goals for a 40 time.
Virginia Tech’s David Wilson is one of the top backs in the draft and has been clocked mainly in the low 4.4s. He said he wants to run sub 4.35, which isn’t outlandish though the Field Turf track in Indy isn’t known as a fast one. Miami’s Lamar Miller, who is a similar back to Wilson in running style and speed took it a step further.
“I’m trying to break the clock, run a 4.2 or 4.3,” he said. “My best time is a 4.3 flat. I’m going to try to run in the 4.2 range.”
Miller, much like Wilson has run in the low 4.4s historically, but you never know with these prospects doing nothing but training for the Combine how low they can get their 40 times.
Florida’s Chris Rainey is expected to turn in one of the fastest times at the Combine this weekend, but his prediction as to what he’ll run seems a bit ridiculous.
“I’m going for the 4.1,” he said. “I’m going for the big one.”
The all-time best 40 time was turned in by Tennessee RB Chris Johnson (4.24).
