Default Re: Northern Iowa’s Terrell Sinkfield WR runs a blazing 4.19 40 at Minnesota’s pro da

The article is not that long, so I guess I can just quote the whole thing:

http://www.twincities.com/sports/ci_...ield-runs-4-19

Terrell Sinkfield played running back at Hopkins High School and hoped to play for the Gophers. Former University of Minnesota coach Tim Brewster didn't offer Sinkfield a scholarship, so he went to Northern Iowa, where he switched to wide receiver. Sinkfield created buzz at the Gophers' Pro Day on Monday, March 4, when word spread that he had run 4.19 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Mitchel Chargo, Sinkfield's agent, said his client ran the 40 three times for NFL scouts, clocking 4.27 in the first run, 4.19 in the second and 4.44 in the third. Blame the 4.44, Chargo said, on Sinkfield tripping during his run.

Scott Studwell, the Vikings' director of college scouting, said he didn't have Sinkfield with any sub-4.3 times, adding, "He ran in the high 4.3s. He can run. He ran fast. He tested well."

Here is Sinkfield ...

On his 40 times: "I was trying to shoot for a 4.19. I knew it was good when I finished. The fastest I've done (prior to Monday) was 4.2. I was running 4.3s in high schools."

On being snubbed by the Gophers out of high school: "It was kind of like a dream to play for the Gophers. I pretty much came here with a chip on my shoulder. It was pretty much a plan since high school that I was going to come here (for Pro Day) and steal the show."

On his career at Northern Iowa: "I still don't think I played to my full potential at UNI because my first few years we had a running quarterback, and my last year we had a freshman."

On his hands: "They're good. I don't think I dropped any balls this year." (As a senior, he had 43 receptions for 494 yards and four touchdowns.)

On whether his Pro Day performance enhanced his stock with NFL teams: "I know my ability is good enough to be drafted. Once I get on that field, I know my ability will take over. Drafted or not, I know once I make a team and get in camp, I'm going to shine."
