Phillip Dorsett is likely the fastest on-field prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft, but that isn’t going to be enough to take Chris Johnson off his throne as the king of the 40-yard dash. The former Miami standout ran an official 4.33 on Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine, as Matt Miller notes. The sleeper of the day, J.J. Nelson from UAB, ran a 4.28.
DB’s Take: It’s a shame that we have to make this “record” a massive production every year, but it must be done. 4.33 is a great time, and shouldn’t be overlooked. Dorsett has incredible speed that some NFL team is going to love. For Nelson — it’s safe to say he’s on sleeper alert.
