Denard Robinson said hed run something pretty fast in the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine today, and the Michigan quarterback-turned-wide receiver didnt disappoint.
Robinson ran an official 4.43-second 40, tied for the seventh fastest time among receivers on a speedy day at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Robinson clocked a handheld 4.34 seconds by NFL Network in his first attempt, after one false start, and a handheld 4.45 on his second after two false starts. Five players officially ran sub-4.4s.
Texas receiver Marquise Goodwin, a four-time All-American in track, threatened Chris Johnsons combine record (4.24 seconds) with a 4.27-second 40, West Virginias Tavon Austin and Texas A&Ms Ryan Swope both ran 4.34, and TCUs Josh Boyce and Oklahomas Kenny Stills both ran 4.38.

Jordan Morgan, Trey Burke and Caris LeVert all faced the media after Michigan’s 13 point win over Illinois.
