Minnesota wide receiver posts fastest time ever, then asked to run it again because scouts don’t believe it.
Last week at the combine we showed you the blistering speed of the likes of Tavon Austin, Marquise Goodwin and Onterio McCalebb.
While those three were all incredibly quick, blowing the scouts away, theirs was walking pace compared to what Terrell Sinkfield did at his pro day.
The wide receiver ran a mind-boggling 4.19 second 40, the fastest on record.
Bleacherreport notes that his time was so fast, he was asked to do it again because the scouts simply did not believe it.
His three times were 4.27, 4.19 and 4.41: the reason the last one was so so slow? He tripped at the start.
His average of 4.33 seconds over the three runs would have put him top of the leader board at the Combine.
While there is more to playing wide receiver than flat out speed, once again he could be a mid-round pick for a team looking for explosiveness on special teams, and develop him into a vertical threat in the passing games.
So effectively, he is going to the Oakland Raiders.
