John Ross sets NFL combine record in 40 Saturday morning, in a seeming blink of an eye, Ross try turned into combine history as he recorded a time of 4.22, breaking the mark of 4.24 set by running back Chris Johnson in 2008. Ross, who in a happy coincidence was given jersey number 42 for his workouts here, set the record on his first attempt and told the NFL Network he was cramping in his calves before his run. Ross then decided not to bother with his second attempt. Ross: 4.22 (unofficial) felt good, Ross told the NFL Network. felt tight at the end but it felt good coming out so I knew it was probably going to be pretty quick. In an interview with the NFL Network after the 40 yard dash record became official, Ross remembered the dark days of 2015 when he sat out the season due to a torn ACL and briefly wondered what his football future held. just thankful beyond measure, blessed and just really happy to be in this situation, Ross said. two years ago I was sitting on a couch for a whole season, torn ACL, and now to be in this situation I just really thankful. Ross, though, wore Nike and nike outfits didn seem too bothered he hadn acquired some real estate for his quick travel across the turf Saturday at the home of the Indianapolis Colts. really can swim that well, Ross said. I don have a boat. So I had to run in Nikes. previous best time was a 4.25 at the Husky combine last year and he had said Friday that he had been routinely running under 4.3 in workouts. told everybody I knew he was going to break it, Qualls said. honestly thought if he was everything 100 percent nike vapor untouchable pro right and he went to the right training facility he would break 4.2. I heard a couple of stopwatches got him in 4.1. So I wasn surprised by that at all. Maybe the best reaction came from Texas A defensive end Myles Garrett, often projected as the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. As Garrett session wrapped up and reporters were told there was time for one more question, Garrett was asked about Ross times. he said with a smile, then turned and walked off the podium. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock, though, nike 2 in 1 said the value of Ross time could be fleeting love John Ross, Mayock said. tape is great, so when you compare that and put the speed on top of it. Mayock then noted Ross past knee issues as well as an upcoming shoulder surgery on March 14 and said the one down note to what happened Saturday is that Ross couldn finish all of the drills due to his cramps.
