Former Oregon running back LaMichael James ran an unofficial time of 4.37 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine Sunday in Indianapolis.
He ran a 4.37 again on his second attempt. His time is the fastest among the first group of running backs working out today.
James has been projected by many as a second-round, or third-round pick in this year's draft.
Running a sub-4.40 electronic 40 time should lock him into that range. But again, the 4.37 was unofficial.
BEST OF MAXIM
Is that LaMichael James hydrobiking?
Watch as LaMichael takes to LaWaters in LA for a little pre-combine stress reliever. James surprised some unsuspecting fans along the coast by “boosting his swag” and taking his talents to the bay. It will be interesting to see how LaMichael’s aquatic training method translates into the NFL game.
4 stars aplenty
According to a few sports media outlets the Oregon Ducks had a good recruiting class, around the 20th best in the nation (ESPN has them at 18). They may need a few of their new guys to step up since they lost RB LaMichael James and QB Darron Thomas to the NFL.

It was no secret that the 2012 NFL Draft was lacking marque running backs, and that was emphasized when the backs invited to this year's NFL Combine took the field, and put up some less than impressive times. While No.1 overall running back Trent Richards sat out of activities it was the perfect opportunity for someone else to step up and make a name for themselves. That...
Last season, the depth at the tight end position took an early hit with the injury retirement of Brandon Williams and the subsequent Achilles injury to Curtis White. That left the Ducks with just two healthy tight ends.
In our continuing look at the 2013 recruiting needs for the Oregon Ducks, today Duck Sports Authority turns its attention to the often unsung heroes of the Oregon...
I am typically a stream of consciousness kind of guy. I see something and I comment on it. Thanks to Twitter I can now share these ramblings with the world in real time. But even I have limits. The NFL Scouting Combine is that limit. First off, I don’t watch it live. I can appreciate anyone who can, but my weekends revolve around my family and not sitting for...
