Can Alabama football player Henry Ruggs III break the Combine record in the forty?

Henry Ruggs III from Alabama is fast, but how fast is he? Is he Combine Record holder fast? His teammates at Alabama believe so.

Alabama football star Henry Ruggs III is super fast, and he was the home run hitter for the Crimson Tide when it came to deep balls, but can he honestly run a 4.19? One of his teammates believe he will run a 4.19 forty and that is Trevon Diggs the starting Alabama cornerback.

Ruggs is a deep threat who had 40 catches for 746 yards last season, an average of 18.6 yards per catch. Ruggs has also returned punts and kickoffs, and he had a 75-yard touchdown run last season as well.

4.22 I’m calling it !!!— JW (@D1__JW) February 10, 2020

4.19— Diggs (@TrevonDiggs) February 10, 2020

4.20… PERIOD.— Damien Harris (@DHx34) February 10, 2020

Last year at his Junior Pro Day Riggs III reportedly ran in the 4.25 range in the 40-yard dash.

In comparison, the fastest time ever at the NFL Scouting Combine is current Cincinnati Bengals wideout and former Washington Huskies receiver John Ross holds the Combine record after clocking a 4.22-second 40 in 2017.

Many of Ruggs III’s teammates think he will run faster than Ross. That would be insane and his stock would fly if that happened.
