Northern Iowa WR Terrell Sinkfield runs 4.19 40-yard-dash

While working out at the University of Minnesota’s Pro Day, Northern Iowa wide receiver Terrell Sinkfield posted a completely unbelievable 40-yard-dash time.  The 4.19 he ran is .05 faster than the NFL Combine record that was set by Chris Johnson in 2008.  Sinkfield had 43 catches for 499 yards and four touchdowns in his senior season and was also a track star for Hopkins (Minn.) High School, where he once ran a 10.86-second 100-yard dash.

Obviously the ridiculously fast time meant that officials wanted him to run the 40-yard-dash again to see if it was legitimate or not.

Because of his blazing speed on his second attempt, the 6-foot-1 Sinkfield was asked to run it one more time, something none of the other players did Monday. Despite a slight stumble, he still clocked in at 4.41 seconds.

Combined with his first attempt of 4.27 seconds, Sinkfield averaged a 4.33 despite his stumble in his third attempt. But it was his time of 4.19 that created plenty of buzz Monday at the Gophers’ practice facility.

Sinkfield wasn’t all that amused though, because he thinks that he can do much better.

Just some determination. That was the expectation, really. Aim big. I was trying to get that 4.1.

I knew it was good when I finished. I was pretty happy, so I came back. I thought I messed up when they said go again. I’m like, ‘Dang, why do I have to run again?

It’s pretty amazing that he was able to run this time, and I think it is only a matter of time before someone runs this fast at the Combine.  A player running this type of 40-yard-dash though will definitely get himself elevated into the draft, because at the end of the day, you can’t teach speed like this.
