With DRC on the circuit, there is guaranteed to be 2 hammys strained.
Mark Ingram?

Is he known as a speedster?
What Is Tim Carter Doing These Days?

Id rather have him there than a current player.
They were airing old QB challenge on NFLN

I was thinking to myself they could never pull something like that off today.

I guess I was wrong.
This is cool

But its something that should be done back during the Pro bowl or in the dead month of Feb. I wonder who the surprise guest will be that show up I would love it if Usain Bolt showed up.
Screw it

He ran a 4.62 at the combine, makes zero sense why he'd get an invite
Not a great list

Ingram and Kamara? Didn't both have over 4.5. Though I want to see DRC's time at this point of his career.

Wrong Coleman.
40 yard dash  
dtman1 : 5/23/2019 4:21 pm : link
Corey Coleman clocked a blazing 4.37 40 at his Baylor pro day before he was drafted.
You got me.  
Ira : 5/23/2019 4:21 pm : link
Guilty as charged.
Coleman, Slayton, Ballentine (healthy), and Barkley  
BlueLou'sBack : 5/23/2019 6:05 pm : link
could all win with a good start. The key to winning a 40, obviously besides simply being fast, is the start. Unlike 100 meters, you really can't make up for getting out of the blocks sub-optimally. Or "off the line."

That's why Mario Manningham, posted like a 4.7 at the combine, but then a 4.38 at his pro day. His real speed was a lot closer to the 4.38 time... But that bad combine 40 is how we got him with the last pick of the 3rd round, probably.
Remember the old show Superstars?

I couldn't imagine major sports franchises letting any player take part in something like that now.
They used to do
