2011 NFL Combine Results: Dontay Moch, Sam Acho, Ryan Kerrigan Star In Defensive Lineman Drills

Defensive linemen worked out at the 2011 NFL Combine Monday morning, with Nevada DE Dontay Moch stealing the show by running a 4.44-second 40-yard dash, the fastest by any DL in over a decade. For reference, that’s faster than A.J. Green, who’s expected to be the first RB/WR taken in this year’s draft. Fresno State’s Chris Carter, Texas’ Sam Acho, Arizona’s Brooks Reed, and Pitt’s Jabaal Sheard all ran sub-4.7 40s.

The Atlanta Falcons are believed to be in the market for a pass-rushing defensive end, and have reportedly already met with Acho and Miami’s Allen Bailey.

Bailey and Purdue’s Ryan Kerrigan also made the top ten among DL, running 4.71 and 4.77 respectively. Kerrigan finished second to Wisconsin’s J.J. Watt among pure defensive ends at the bench press. Bailey and Kerrigan ranked in the top 10 in both the broad jump and vertical jump as well.
