Montez Sweat turns heads with 40-yard dash at 2019 NFL Combine

Share

It was the fastest time at the Combine at any position since 2017 and the fastest by a safety since at least 2005.

Mississippi State defensive lineman Montez Sweat also turned in an impressive showing, clocking his 40-yard dash at 4.41 seconds.

A 4.41 40-yard dash would make Sweat, who had 22.5 sacks and 30 tackles for loss in two seasons as Mississippi State, the eighth-fastest wide receiver at this year's Combine. He finished with 15 reps in the bench press, and recorded a 38.0 vertical jump and a 129.0 broad jump.

The 40-yard dash always receives the headlines, but the more important drills for pass rushers are the 10-yard split and the three-cone drill.

During West's second run the broadcast crew on the NFL Network heaped praise on Kentucky's turnaround under Mark Stoops.

His lower body explosiveness did not compare as well to the safeties in this year's draft and while Amadi is expected to play as a Nickel corner, his jump results were behind most of the cornerbacks as well.
