The combine king Chris Johnson has be dethrone by John Ross III. Ross ran an amazing time of 4.22 in the 40 yard dash beating the record of 4.24 set by Johnson in 2008.
“I’m just thankful beyond measure, blessed and just really happy to be in this situation,” Ross told NFL Network’s Michael Irvin about breaking the record, “because two years ago, I was sitting on the couch for the whole season, torn ACL, and now to be in this position, I’m really thankful.”
Ross started out late in his career, but he put on a clinic his last year in Washington. Ross caught 81 passes for 1,150 yards and 17 touchdowns for the Pac-12 champions. He was also named the fastest player in the nation by College Football 24/7.
“I feel like I could have run faster, just because I cramped up at the end,” Ross said in an interview on NFL Network.
With breaking a record that stood since 2008, Ross has created a stir of attention and expressions.
