John Ross Smashes NFL Combine 40-Yard Dash Record

Michigan State Football

Washington wide receiver John Ross entered the NFL Combine with a unique speed many were excited to see how he would run.

McKenzie, who was the only Bulldog invited to this year's combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, ran a 4.42 on his second attempt of the 40-yard dash.

The most fantastic part of it all was the fact Ross pulled up lame at the end of the run suffering from cramps and decided he didn't need his second attempt. "So I just used it the best I can".

"I feel like I could've run faster", Ross said afterward.

Ross' reaction to missing out on the opportunity: "Well I can't swim that well", according to NBC Sports' Josh Norris. I know Mike can also be a deep threat, but he is more of a bigger guy.




For comparison purposes, Paul Richardson of Colorado ran a 4.40 at the 2014 NFL Comnine. Staples was 22-fastest among the 51 wide receivers who ran the 40 on Saturday. But Ross essentially shrugged his shoulders at that offer by wearing Nike's instead.

Nonetheless, the wide receiver certainly must have helped his stock ahead of next month's National Football League draft.

"But", Ross said with a grin and a shrug, "I'm thankful".

John Ross was always going to put up an impressive number in the 40-yard dash at the 2017 NFL Combine.

In addition to being able to blow by virtually anyone, Ross is also a complete route-runner with wonderful footwork.
