Records are meant to be broken.
On the second day of on-field field drills at the 2017 NFL Combine, University of Washington wide receiver John Ross recorded the fastest time in the 40-yard dash in combine history with an official time of 4.22, breaking the previous record held by running back Chris Johnson (4.24).
"I'm both happy and thankful because not a lot of people get to do this," Ross told NFL Network's Michael Irvin. "Since I was a kid, I dreamed of being in this position and being here. I'm just enjoying the process."
Johnson congratulated the former Husky when the official time was released:
As you can see in the video above, Ross came up limping after he completed the run. When talking with Irvin, Ross said he felt cramping in his calves because of dehydration. He did not attempt the 40 a second time.
Oh, and if his current time isn't already great enough, Ross mentioned to Irvin that he felt he could've ran faster.
