I’ll be keeping an eye on these 5 fastest men during the upcoming NFL Football Combine as well as the NFL Draft.

In order of their relative track speed, they are:

Clemson’s Jacoby Ford (WR)

Jacoby Ford has a PR of 6.51 seconds for the 60-meter dash and a 10.01 in the 100m at the NCAAs in a qualifying heat.  He ran a reported time of 4.126 second 40 yard dash but that is questionable.  He is 5 ft 9 in and 175lbs.

LSU’s Trindon Holliday (WR)

Trindon Holliday’s PR of 10.00 from the 100 meters and 2009 NCAA Outdoor Champion raised a lot of eyebrows.   His personal best time for 60 meters is 6.54 seconds.  The only question is his durability being 5 ft 5 in tall and under 160 lbs.

Clemson’s CJ Spiller (RB)

CJ Spiller track resume includes 60 meters (6.67), 100m (10.22) and 200m (20.91).  He is the top pick for running backs in this year’s NFL Draft.

Cal’s Jahvid Best (RB)

Jahvid Best track personal bests are slightly slower than CJ Spiller (10.31 and 20.65 for 100/200m respectively).  Since I used to work in Berkeley and train at Cal’s Edwards stadium, he gets an honourable mention in this list.

USC’s Taylor Mays (FS)

Taylor Mays doesn’t have any track times to compare among the others, but in 2006, according to Pete Carroll of USC, he was clocked at 4.25 in the 40-yard dash.  In 2007, Mays ran an “electronically-timed” 4.32 40-yard dash, bench pressed 225 pounds 23 times, recorded a 41" vertical jump and an 11?4" standing long jump.  Impressive numbers
