NFL Combine 2012 Results: Running Back 40-Yard Dash Times

New, comment

Sunday is a big day for the 2012 NFL Combine since it's when the offensive skill positions work out. The 40-yard dash is one measurable in particular that can mean boom or bust for an NFL hopeful.

The running backs posted official 40 times on Sunday, which are all listed below.

No one broke the 4.40 barrier, but Miami's Lamar Miller came closest, hitting that mark on the head with a running back-best 4.40, LaMichael James also helped himself with a 4.45 time -- tied for second-best among running backs.
