The NFL Combine quarterback 40-yard dash race wasn’t even close…
Top NFL draft quarterback prospects Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston are both favorites to be selected first overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and they are looking to prove themselves at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Their latest chance to show off their athleticism came in the form of the 40-yard dash, as they raced each other.
It should not come as a surprise to those who watch college football, but Mariota easily outran Winston as he finished with a 4.52 time while Winston had a 4.97.
Mariota led a fast-paced Oregon offense, which gave him blazing speed, although Winston is widely being considered to have the better arm of the two.
Here is a video from Fanatix 8 of Mariota showing off his Oregon speed.
