Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard was trying a wee bit too hard to make a good impression at the Combine Sunday. Attempting to run the 40-yard dash, Ballard took a few steps before stumbling out of the gates. He ended up crashing into a tripod and taking it out.
Hey Vick, we know the Combine is pressure-packed, but ease up and chill out bro. You try too hard you end up crashing and burning. Ballard’s final 40 time was a 4.65, which placed him toward the bottom of the running back list.

Vick Ballard had a slight misstep on his first attempt at the 40-yard dash, to put it lightly. Imagine training every day for a few different items, such as the 40-yard dash and when the eyes of every NFL coach and scout are on you, the below happens. Vick did run the 40 again and ended up clocking a 4.63. We feel for you big fella.

Former Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard is a guy I like quite a bit. In fact, he’ll probably be a good pickup for a team looking for a solid back outside the first or second round. He found the end zone 31 times the past two seasons and did so for a team where [...]
Former Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard took part in the combine today. His 40 yard dash was pretty interesting. Instead of sprinting to the finish, Ballard stumbled and took out one of the timing camera things, making it a total of about 10 yards. SBNation provided the video with the Crocodile Miles theme song. We all remember that right? … Continue reading …
And by doesn’t go very well, we mean Ballard goes down in a heap at about the 10-yard mark, as well as crashing into a tripod, while the eyes of a ton of NFL coaches and scouts were focused squarely on the Mississippi State running back. On the bright side, at least he stood out as the only guy to fall during his 40-year dash. That’s gotta account for something, right?
Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard managed to make himself stand out with his 40-yard dash attempt at the NFL combine, but probably not in the way he had hoped.
Ballard stumbled a few steps after the start, then lost his balance and fell to the ground, knocking over some equipment at the 10-yard mark on the side of the race lane.
Ballard did get another attempt to run...
Normally, the NFL Scouting Combine is only interesting for NFL scouts or NFL draftniks but for the rest of us, the below clip of Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard almost taking out a tripod made it interesting.
Check out as Ballard trips about ten yards into his 40-yard dash and nearly destroys a tripod in his path:

Mississippi State Bulldog running back Vick Ballard slipped and fell during a 40 yard dash attempt at the 2012 NFL combine. Ballard, who is projected to go in the 4th round, may not have seen his draft chances "SLIP" as he did run a 4.63 in his next attempt, loads of pun intended.
MMQB hasn’t been posted yet, so your weekly PK bashing will be running a little behind. In the meantime, here’s a quick Monday morning breakfast nugget to tide you over. Obviously, the combine is in full swing, with the NFL world busy obsessing about tangibles, such as a player’s height and 40 time, only so they can be disregarded in favor of intangibles, like heartiness and...
Unfortunately for the Mississippi State University Bulldog, there were 40.

Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard can't even run the 40-yard dash without falling down. What would he do with tacklers on the field?
Even though the NFL is becoming a passing league more and more each year, the running back is still an extremely valuable position. Now, the best running backs in the NFL today can run between the tackles, turn the corner and break free, and catch the ball down field as well. Talent can be found anywhere in the NFL Draft, and that includes running back talent. Here are the top ten...
