There’s speed, and then there’s 4.28 speed. Many skill position players dream of breaking 4.4, and breaking 4.3 is almost unheard of, yet Auburn Tiger defensive back Jonathan Jones isn’t dreaming any longer.
Jones just ran an unofficial 4.28 40-yard dash at the NFL combine.
Watching it from a side view shows just how fast that kind of speed looks.
With that said, the NFL combine record for the sprint still stands at Chris Johnson’s 4.24, a record that if broken, would warrant 1 million dollars in prize money from Adidas.
