Auburn's Jamel Dean blazes into first place in 40 at National Football League combine

  • D.K. Metcalf is a beast among men at the NFL Scouting Combine

Whether it's at work, in a relationship, or talking to a stranger at a bar, there shouldn't be limits to what we are curious about or wanting to learn.

Officially clocking in at 4.29 seconds, Zedrick Woods has earned the title of the fastest man in the 2019 NFL Draft class. Some of them have been better than others, of course, but none of them were probably as awkward as the one former Texas Longhorns defensive back Kris Boyd went through over the weekend.

Opeta was a sleeper with no FBS offers coming out of high school and now he's the strongest man at the National Football League combine.




And according to one draft hopeful, he got one of the non-common questions. "He caught the ball really well, that was my question". Mississippi State edge rusher Montez Sweat set a combine record on Sunday, running the 40-yard dash in the fastest time in modern history for a defensive lineman: 4.41 seconds.

You can check out the 13 players who ran sub-4.4 40s at this year's combine below, along with a snapshot of the top five players at each position. Woods had 79 tackles, four passes defensed, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, a touchdown and 0.5 sack in 12 games in 2018 for the Rebels.

The 2019 NFL Draft will take place between April 25 and April 27 in Nashville, Tennessee.
