Terrell Sinkfield wasn’t invited to last week’s NFL combine, but if he were records might have fallen. Sinkfield, a wide receiver at Northern Iowa for the last four seasons, took his talents to the University of Minnesota pro day on Monday and showed off the blazing speed that could catch an NFL team’s eye come April. During his workout, Sinkfield ran an apparent 4.19 40-yard dash, which if proven would have broken Titans’ running back Chris Johnson‘s now longstanding combine record of a 4.24. Sinkfield is a viable NFL prospect, measuring out at 6-foot-1 and close to 200 pounds. He caught 43 passes for just under 500 yards and four touchdowns for Norther Iowa in 2012 during a 5-6 season.

Terrell Sinkfield quickly and rather dramatically threw himself onto the radar of many NFL teams following a blazing 40 time during Monday’s pro day at the University of Minnesota.
