Chris Conley did WHAT at the NFL Combine?

Chris Conley nearly hit *multiple* records at the NFL Combine, which is pretty ridiculous.

Georgia WR Chris Conley is showing his freakish athletic ability at the NFL Combine, putting together perhaps the most impressive individual show in combine history.

Update: Read our 2015 NFL Draft rankings by position.

Conley ran a 4.35 40, which is impressive, sure. It's the third-fastest time amongst wide receivers at the combine. Which is good.

But on the standing vertical leap, he jumped 45 inches. That's the best ever by a wide receiver, and one off combine record of 46 inches set by safety Donald Washington in 2006.

And on the broad jump, he jumped 11 feet, seven inches. That's also a record for wide receivers, and ties the combine record set by defensive end Jamie Collins in 2013.

Here's all three in one Vine:

Conley is 6'2, so he's not exactly small. He's showing that he has explosive speed, explosive leaping ability, and explosive burst. There are questions about his game -- he ranked No. 25 on our list of best wide receiver prospects after the end of the NFL season, which would make him a late-round pick -- and combine stars don't always pan out. But he gave his stock a huge boost today.

While you're reading about Conley, you might as well watch the 26-minute Star Wars movie he made featuring his Georgia coach Mark Richt.
