Obviously not, but for some reason the fan in all of us finds the prospect of a really fast 40-yard dash time just a whole lot more interesting than the prospect of a really good film diagnosis test. It is, after all, the reason you can sign up for contests predicting the combine’s fastest times and not say, oh, the Top 10 wonderlic scores.
So who will run the fastest 40-yard dash at this year’s combine? Most people say Percy Harvin, but always on the lookout for sleepers and under-the-radar prospects as we are, we can’t help but wonder if Texas State’s Stan Zwinggli wouldn’t steal the honor if he had been invited to the combine. If the name sounds unfamiliar don’t be ashamed, as relatively few outside Fredericksburg, Texas have even heard of the 5′11 running back. Even so, his alleged 4.26 40-yard dash at a 2003 Texas A&M camp is the stuff of local legend. While he had a relatively modest career production wise for the Bobcats, his physical attributes were never much in doubt, a point which will likely get him noticed going into a spring pro day workout. If nothing else, he remains one of those intriguing prospects that could be a valuable edition to an NFL team trying to pick up good value in free agency.
