NFL Combine results: Steve Williams posts fastest unofficial time of 4.25

Ezra Shaw

Cal cornerback Steve Williams posted the fastest unofficial 40-yard dash time of the 2013 NFL Combine on Tuesday, running the drill in 4.25 seconds.

Cal cornerback Steve Williams ran the fastest unofficial 40-yard dash time of the 2013 NFL Combine on Tuesday, posting a time of of 4.25 seconds that, if it holds, will just beat out Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin's time of 4.27 seconds posted Sunday. The NFL Network ran a simulcast of Goodwin and Williams running the 40, and it appeared that Williams just edged out the wide receiver and will finish as the the fastest man of the 2013 draft class.

It's only fitting that the fastest time comes out of a defensive back group that featured 11 players running sub-4.4 seconds. Alabama's Dee Milliner, Mississippi State's Darius Slay, and Washington's Desmond Trufant all ran 4.31 seconds unofficially. Boise State's Jamar Taylor was just behind at 4.32 seconds.

Williams does not appear on SB Nation's big board Top 100, though he could be a fast riser based on his time. He doesn't have ideal size at just 5'9, 181 pounds. He excelled as a cover corner with the Golden Bears, however, notching two interceptions with 11 passes defended last season.
