Tavon Austin's blistering 40

Written by Jenn Menendez on .

Update 12:40 p.m.: Austin's official 40-yard dash time is a 4.34, a .09 drop from his unofficial time of 4.24.

From this morning: Tavon Austin ran a blistering 4.25 this morning in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, which - if it holds - is the second fastest time in combine history to Chris Johnson’s 4.24 record set in the 2008 combine.

Certainly Austin's speed is apparant to anyone with good vision, but to get clocked at a time this fast bodes very well for his draft stock.

Austin's speed was equaled byTexas WR Marquise Goodwin who ran an unofficial 4.25 second 40 as well.

In his second attempt Austin ran an unofficial 4.31 and Goodwin ran an unofficial 4.29.
