NFL Combine 2017: Minnesota CB Jalen Myrick runs 4.28 40 yard dash

Myrick may have just posted the fastest time of any Big Ten player at the combine...ever.

NCAA Football: Holiday Bowl-Minnesota vs Washington State Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Jalen Myrick is fast. Very fast.

At the NFL Combine this morning, the former Gopher cornerback clocked an unofficial 4.29 40-yard dash. If upheld, that would be the fastest 40 time from a Big Ten prospect in the history of the NFL Combine. (Update: See below, but his official time of 4.28 is definitely the fastest ever by a Big Ten player) Watch for yourself:

For comparison, scouts were raving about Washington wide receiver John Ross after he ran a 4.22 40 at the combine over the weekend. So expect Myrick to start garnering more buzz after this morning’s display of blazing speed.

UPDATE: Myrick posted a still blazing 4.32 unofficial in his 2nd attempt.
