The fastest "official" 40 yard dash ever recorded at the NFL Combine is a 4.24 seconds. Former Eastern Kentucky wide receiver Rondel Melendez ran it in 1999 and current Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson tied it in 2008. Then came along Buffalo Bills mascot Billy Buffalo.

College prospects have it easy - running the 40 inside, with the highest quality track shoes and aero-dynamic spandex. Not Billy. Billy chose to run it outdoors at Ralph Wilson Stadium, in his clod-hopping Converse All Star-looking gunboats against a brisk 15 mph Buffalo breeze coming off the lake. And to top it off, there was no spandex and he didn't shave.

At best, Billy was going to break NFL Network analyst Rich Eisen's 6.18 40 at the 2011 Combine. In fairness to Eisen, he also ran it unshaven. But once Billy started, he was barely a blur. 3.83 seconds later, Billy Buffalo changed his name to Billy Badass.
