The top prospects from around the nation have been measured, weighed and analyzed via on-field workouts and drills over the past week, which means only one thing was left to do on Monday: Rich Eisen's 40-yard dash. As usual, Eisen took the field in Indianapolis in his full suit and football cleats, but he didn't manage to beat his best time of 5.98 seconds, putting up an official time of 6.10 seconds.
We've got video of his attempt below:
While this isn't his worst time, it is the worst one since he ran a 6.18 in 2011, posting a 6.03 or better the past three years.
Eisen has been running the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine since 2005, when Terrell Davis challenged him to compete in the event. He's generally shown steady improvement over the past 10 years, putting up his worst time of 6.77 seconds in 2005 and not getting near that number again over the years. In 2014, he set his best time at 5.98 seconds, the first time he'd made it under the six-second mark.
We've got a table of all of his past results, where you can pretty clearly see his improvement, save from 2006 to 2007:
