Newman has to be the fastest. I thought Tomlinson was fast as well That is the guy I compare Hollings to if Hollings can polish up.

Carlos Francis from Texas Tech is another fast guy

AJ's 40 at his workout was either a high 4.3 or a low 4.4, I know it wasnt 4.34, so Dunta might be faster.

I think M. Bennett & D. Stallworth recorded the fastest 40. Bradford is probably the fastest player on our team.

AJ did not run at the combine, although here is a fun quote about his appearance:

Quote:
University of Miami wide receiver Andre Johnson turned heads when he weighed in at an incredible 230 pounds. And with nary any fat on him at all. The 6-feet-2 Johnson is a monster, a player who closely resembles Cardinals wide receiver David Boston in terms of overwhelming size. Scouts stopped and stared when he walked down a corridor on Friday afternoon. Johnson won't run here but he has already passed the eyeball test.
This doesn't give a specific time, but from PFW last year:

Quote:
Miamiís Andre Johnson and Michigan Stateís Charles Rogers solidified their status as the top two receivers in the draft with sub-4.3 40-times on some watches at their pro days. With a 41-inch vertical jump and better size (6-2, 230), Johnson has shown he is a better physical specimen than Rogers, who did not impress with a 37-inch vertical, 10-foot-1 broad jump and relatively slow shuttles (4.19 20-yard and 7.14 three-cone) that were below average when measured vs. Combine participants. However, Rogers is more polished as a receiver than Johnson is.

Gotta make a distinction between the combine and pro-days. Stories are out there that Bradford running in the 4.2's was what got him into football in college, but:

Quote:
With NFL coaches watching at the combine in Indianapolis, Bradford ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds.
FYI--going into last year's combine:
Quote:
the fastest official time at the combine was posted by Deion Sanders, at 4.29 seconds, in 1989

A sub 4.3? Man, didn't realize he was that fast! Roy WIlliams 'only' ran a 4.37.

Daryl Green still might give guys in the nfl a run for their money (and I probably mispelled his name)
