Offensive Linemen aren’t required to run 40 yards in a straight line very often. Yet, for reasons unbeknownst to me they’re required to partake in the 40-yard dash at every combine. It’s not fun to watch, none of the combine is. Until today. Terron Armstead has done the impossible in Indianapolis. Check it out.
The Arkansas-Pine Bluff tackle set a combine record with an unofficial 4.65 40-yard dash, a time that was later corrected to 4.71. The previous mark was 4.84, set by Allen Barbe in 2007. Cool stuff.
