Montez Sweat Set Big-Man Record For 40-Yard Dash


Blazing fast wide receivers DK Metcalf, Parris Campbell shine in Combine workouts

Meanwhile, Sweat, the former Mississippi State defensive lineman, made his workout look like it was, well, no sweat. (4.43), Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (4.47), Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown (4.57) and Houston Texans edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney (4.53). Burns also had a solid showing during drill work, which he put on full display with this outstanding catch.

Montez Sweat, a 6-foot-6, 260-pound defensive end out of Mississippi State, ran a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash, setting a modern record (since 2003) at the NFL Combine among all lineman.

Sweat may have solidified himself as a top-five first-round pick, outside of the Miami Dolphins' range at No. 13 in the draft, set to begin on April 25 in Nashville, Tenn.

All three of the players mentioned above would add an even greater spark to a Broncos edge group that features Von Miller and Bradley Chubb.

Sanders was named to's all-Combine team thanks to his performance.

Bush and White are battling to be the first linebacker selected, and they waged a terrific battle in Indy. "Among his other numbers included a 10'4" broad jump, 36-inch vertical, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.19 seconds. Christmas posted an official 40 time of 5.08 seconds, while Murray ran an unofficial 4.63. Savage's 4.36 40-yard dash is incredibly appealing, as are his four interceptions in 2018, checking off the playmaker boxes general manager Bob Quinn covets.

The Raiders have holes to fill on both sides of the football, but the defense will likely (and should) be a point of emphasis for Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock come draft night.
