NFL Combine: A Look At The Fastest Receiver Times

Videos by OutKick

The 2022 NFL Scouting Combine kicked off Thursday night and the first group of receivers set the tone with four separate players posting sub-4.4-second times in the 40-yard dash.

In the competitive nature of the event, the second group of receivers took the field of Lucas Oil Stadium and had players hitting unofficial times that called the combine 40-yard record into question, but ultimately New York Giants WR John Ross‘ 40-yard time of 4.21 seconds remains the official record.
