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:

Player School Time
Jonathan Taylor Wisconsin 4.39
Darrynton Evans Appalachian State 4.41
Raymond Calais Louisiana-Lafayette 4.42
Anthony McFarland Jr. Maryland 4.44
Cam Akers Florida State 4.47
D'Andre Swift Georgia 4.48
Joshua Kelley UCLA 4.49
LeVante Bellamy Western Michigan 4.50
Ke'Shawn Vaughn Vanderbilt 4.51
AJ Dillon Boston College 4.53
Rico Dowdle South Carolina 4.54
JaMycal Hasty Baylor 4.55

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.
