Chris Johnson ran a 4.24 40 in 2008

(Michael Conroy/AP)

One thing I love about sports is statistics. Anything from; fastest goals, furthest punt, longest field goal, longest home runs, etc. It really intrigues me to look up these kind of records that may not get as much exposure as some. In this blog I will be presenting the fastest 40 times (40 yard dash) at the NFL combines dating back to 1999. My criteria is simple, the player needs to have a time of 4.40 seconds or less. Ready, here we go. (t) * denotes players who had the same time
