2011 NFL Combine Results: 40-Yard Dash Times Boost Da'Rel Scott, Edmund Gates, Mario Fannin

Running backs and wide receivers are finished running the 40-yard dash at the 2011 NFL Combine. Maryland Terrapins RB Da’Rel Scott turned in the year’s fastest time among all offensive players, running a 4.35-second 40. Defensive backs will get their shot on Tuesday, but that’s going to be a tough target to shoot for.

Very closely behind, Auburn Tigers RB Mario Fannin, Abilene Christian WR Edmund Gates, and Fort Valley State WR Ricardo Lockette all ran 4.37-second 40s. We know Lockette had a meeting scheduled with the Atlanta Falcons, among other teams.

Towering Alabama Crimson Tide WR Julio Jones turned in a 4.39, but he’ll be long gone by the time the Falcons pick. Oklahoma Sooners RB DeMarco Murray produced the only other sub-4.4 40, though he also is very unlikely to wind up in Atlanta.

The Falcons are expected to pick a versatile offensive weapon with one of their picks, though they’ll likely look for a value pick later in the draft. Leonard Hankerson, Randall Cobb, and Torrey Smith, all who’ve been of interest to Falcons fans, all ran under 4.5.
