Speed & Style! John Ross Breaks NFL Combine 40-Yard Dash Record

Starting for the second season of his college career in 2016, Foster immediately erased concerns as to how Alabama might replace last year's leader, SEC Defensive Player of the Year Reggie Ragland, recording 115 tackles, including 13 tackles for losses and five sacks.

Montravius Adams might have been overshadowed by his former teammate, but the 6-foot-4, 304-pounder showcased his explosiveness with a 4.87 second 40-yard dash.

The buzz: No one is catching Alabama's O.J. Howard as the draft's top tight end, but in a loaded year, Engram made his case for the late first round. Scouts and media personnel try to legitimize or bury a given prospect based on how many times he can bench press two and a quarter or how fast he can run 40 yards unimpeded.

And the 22-year-old Washington Huskies wide receiver John Ross did just that, completing the dash in 4.22 seconds, beating the previous record of 4.24 seconds.

Although Ross broke the combine record, he kind of didn't. "Before, I just figured, I am faster than this guy, I can just outrun this guy all the time". Slow guys run slow.

Schumer Says GOP Division Gives Democrats A Chance To Save Obamacare
Any changes could have a particularly significant impact in Maryland. "It feels like we're headed toward another disruption". That's a political hazard for Republicans who would abolish it, says Mark Peterson, a political science professor at UCLA.

The third leg is coming up soon, as teams hold their annual Pro Days to give National Football League scouts a last look at them before they begin to narrow down their draft boards. Before Garrett said on Saturday that he was the best overall player in the draft, it was Takkarist McKinley's turn at the podium. In terms of jumps, he had a 30 inch vertical and 108 inch broad jump, landing in the 17th and 14th percentiles, respectively, for those tests. Teams could have concern about Ross' injury history. Can he withstand the rigors of a 16-game season when he couldn't get through the full Combine workout? "We go with them from workout to workout, from medical to medical, from interview to interview and if they have any questions, want any feedback or any help, we're there to support them". "He's got a small frame".

The buzz: His shoulder didn't get flagged, which should keep Cook in the top half of the first round. That's going to be a theme for him going forward.

"Well I can't swim that well", Ross joked, according to NBC Sports' Josh Norris. He already had microfracture surgery on one knee, tore the ACL in the other and now has a labrum tear that is schedule to be surgically repaired March 14.

Foster's projected recovery timetable was about four months, the source told Caplan, which is well ahead of the start of training camps in July. He is expected to be ready for training camps in the summer.
