Offensive Lineman Terron Armstead Sets Combine Record
A few weeks ago there was a video of a high school running back/defensive lineman that made waves in Hawaii with some amazing speed for a 350-pound man mountain. Maybe if he makes it to the combine in a few years he might have a chance at breaking the record that Terron Armstead set Saturday.
The offensive lineman from the small school of Arkansas-Pine Bluff wowed scouts and analysts in attendance when he got his 300+ pound body moving fast enough to run a 4.71 40-yard dash Saturday morning.
It is the best time for a lineman in the 40 since at least 2006 when the NFL really started to keep records. he was almost bested later in the day by Lance Johnson from Oklahoma, but edged him out by a hundredth of a second (he was timed at 4.72).
