2010 NFL Combine Fastest 40 Yard Dash Times


With the 2010 NFL Combine now complete in Indianapolis, it's time to take a look back. We are looking at the one stat that everyone wants to see 40 yard dash times. Now that all the official times for the DB's are recorded we can compare them to the rest of the field. And since there were some exceptional performances this week, we went ahead and compiled the list of the fastest 40 yard dash times run since 2001 when they began keeping official records. While the Tennessee Titians Chris Johnson is still the fastest man in Combine history, Primetime himself Dion Sanders still holds to the myth he recorded a sub 4.2 second 40, but of course that was in 1989 before official times were recorded.
