Not many would expect blazing fast 40-yard dash times from kickers and punters, but Florida State's Dustin Hopkins and Arkansas's Dylan Breeding ran a respectable 4.69 and 4.75, respectively, at Saturday's NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
Terron Armstead, a 306-pound offensive line prospect from Arkansas-Pine Bluff, outran both of them.
Armstead's eye-popping 4.65 (unofficial) 40 time came with a 1.64 10-yard split, which typically would rival speed outside linebackers. It's believed to be the fastest 40 time ever run by an offensive line prospect at the Combine.
Of the first group of offensive linemen, Armstead was the fastest. The second-fastest times came from one of the top tackle prospects in this year's draft, Central Michigan's Eric Fisher, at 5.01. Colorado's David Bakhtiari posted similar times.
UCLA's Jeff Baca clocked in at 5.03 for the unofficial third place spot among offensive linemen, and Ohio State's Reid Fragel and Arkansas's Alvin Bailey each hit 5.09.
Nick Becton (5.12) of Virginia Tech, Jonathan Cooper (5.13) of North Carolina, Rogers Gaines (5.15) of Tennessee State and Emmett Cleary (5.15) of Boston College rounded out the top-10 of the first group.
