It happens at every Combine: Some top-rated NFL draft prospect makes jaws drop with his time in the 40-yard dash, and in most years, some teams -- most notably the speed-happy Raiders -- push that prospect right to the top of their draft boards.

This year's model is that Ferrari from Arkansas, running back Darren McFadden, a two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up. McFadden strengthened his case to be the first running back off the board in April by running the 40 in a sweet 4.33 seconds.

That actually was second among players at the position -- East Carolina's Chris Johnson ran a 4.24 -- but considering his SEC pedigree and individual laurels, McFadden is reaffirming that he can be a big-time performer in the NFL. Full Story – Sporting News
