Average 40-yard dash time of WRs at Combine was 4.56 seconds – slowest average time for WRs at a Combine in 11 years the data has been kept.
More than a few 40-yard dash times came in slower than expected in that position group. Of the 43 wide receivers invited to the combine, six did not run, including the draft’s top two prospects at the position: Ole Miss’ Laquon Treadwell and Baylor’s Corey Coleman. Of the 37 who took their marks, only two broke 4.4 — Notre Dame’s Will Fuller (4.32) and TCU’s Kolby Listenbee (4.39).
