4 Worst Overall NFL Combine Performances of All Time

  4 Worst Overall NFL Combine Performances of All Time The NFL Combine is upon us, and now is the chance for draft prospects of all shapes and sizes to prove their worth to scouts from across the league. Sometimes, though, players wilt under the spotlight and tank their draft stock. So in honor of those poor players who shot themselves in the foot when it mattered most, here are the four worst performances ever produced by draft prospects in Indianapolis. 4. Terrell Suggs Suggs did not impress theSugg's performance at the 2003 combine was incredibly lackluster. After showing out during his career at Arizona State, the linebacker managed just a 4.84-second 40-yard dash time, and his meek 18 bench press reps left scouts wondering if his stellar college career was nothing more than a fluke.

The 40 - yard dash is a sprint covering 40 yards (36.58 m). It is primarily run to evaluate the speed and acceleration of American football players by scouts

It's pretty rare to see an NFL player with the athleticism that Jalen Hurts just showed us at the NFL Draft Combine. What's even more impressive is seeing a quarterback with that kind of speed and athletic potential. Hurts, the main ingredient on a 12-2 Oklahoma Sooners team, was a beast in college football. His Sooners lost to LSU in the Peach Bowl, but now we are seeing what Hurts can potentially translate to in the NFL.

Seeing a QB hit 4.59 seconds is scary for NFL defenses. Another guy who had the same exact 40-yard dash time: Cam Newton. You may remember him; 4806 rushing yards during his career, 5.1 yards per carry? Yeah, he ran a 4.59 and used it to absolutely torch NFL defenses since 2011.

NFL's next fastest player? Alabama WR Henry Ruggs III wants to set 40-yard dash record at combine

  NFL's next fastest player? Alabama WR Henry Ruggs III wants to set 40-yard dash record at combine Henry Ruggs III is a known big-play threat, having scored 25 touchdowns on 100 career touches. But can the Alabama WR break the 40-yard dash record?"I just got confidence from playing with her. We used to race to the car, race from the house, race in the street," Ruggs, who played wide receiver at Alabama, recalled Tuesday at the NFL scouting combine. He said his mom's track background included specialization in the 100 and 200 meters.

How did the 40 - yard dash become such a big deal, and should we care as much as we do? The NFL combine 's most pressure-packed drill didn't always used to be the television spectacle it is now. Sometimes you can explain away a slower 40, but a fast 40 never hurts . • BREER: Why A.J. Bouye

There was a lot of speculation that NFL teams would ask Hurts to play a different position than quarterback, which he played for his entire college career. Yet, that has yet to transpire, per Hurts.

In his senior year, Hurts attempted over 200 carries and averaged 5.6 yards per gain at Oklahoma. He accumulated 3274 rushing yards in his four year career. But he also had almost 10,000 passing yards too. He could end up being a franchise changing QB wherever he goes.
