While receivers and quarterbacks receive more attention, this year's crop of running back prospects also features a number of explosive athletes.
This was evident in the 40-yard dash Friday night. Former Wisconsin star Jonathan Taylor led the way with a time of 4.39 seconds.
D'Andre Swift, another first-round hopeful, impressed with a 4.48-second run. Here were the event's top performers:
|Darrynton Evans||Appalachian State||4.41|
|Anthony McFarland Jr.||Maryland||4.44|
|Cam Akers||Florida State||4.47|
|LeVante Bellamy||Western Michigan||4.50|
|AJ Dillon||Boston College||4.53|
|Rico Dowdle||South Carolina||4.54|
Arguably the most impressive time came from ex-Boston College rusher AJ Dillon, who ran a 4.53-second 40-yard dash despite weighing in at 247 pounds.
