Aside from watching 300-pound men wobble through the 40-yard dash, the element of surprise and thrill is generally absent from the NFL Scouting Combine, but every once in a while a good story is unearthed.

Last year in Indianapolis, top wide receiver prospect Calvin Johnson, a projected top-three pick out of Georgia Tech, announced that he wouldn't run the 40-yard-dash.

He couldn't enhance his draft position any further, so Johnson said he'd wait until his March 15 Pro Day workout to run the 40. He didn't even bring track sneakers.

But Johnson just couldn't sit there and watch his counterparts compete against each other for the best time. Full Story – Courier Post
