Josh Allen Posts a 4.63 40-Yard Dash

Kentucky’s Josh Allen competed in the 40-yard dash Sunday afternoon at the NFL Combine.  When the dust settled, the future top five pick finished the drill in 4.63 seconds.

The time was .07 faster than his first attempt.  Allen was tied for 19th among all linebackers, and just .01 behind his teammate, Jordan Jones.

Allen’s time did not pop off the page, like Mississippi State’s Montez Sweat, who burned through the drill in 4.41 seconds.  However, Allen did surpass Nick Bosa, his top competition for the No. 1 overall spot, who posted a time of 4.79.

While players competed in drills on the field, NFL Network analysts didn’t jump at the opportunity to praise Allen’s performance from his time at Kentucky.

“A lot of you guys probably didn’t watch him last year because he was at Kentucky,” Jack Pilgrim transcribed. “I think his best football is ahead of him, once he gets better coaching.”

Fortunately, the talking heads do not determine Allen’s draft stock.  His early numbers solidified his status near the top of draft boards.  If the Cardinals, 49ers or Jets check his tape from Kentucky, they’ll see why he was the best defensive player in college football last season.  More tape on the Wildcats from their time at the Combine:

    Evidently Jack Pilgrim didn’t watch much of UK’s 10 wins this season either. He clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about with UK coaching. Amazing how people get paid to be experts on this stuff, but yet they still can’t seem intelligent.

      Pilgrim was just transcribing what was said.

      If someone else wrote that, you shouldn’t be putting quotes on it the way it is.

    Luckily, the NFL has figured out that 40 times don’t mean crap. It’s a useless aspect of the combine and only exists because the cowboys did it in the 60s at their combines. A better determination of skill is weight speed aka how fast you compared to your weight.

    Didn’t watch him because he played at Ky? He’ll get better when he gets better coaching? Wow!! How do you really feel about UK?

      They’ll be eating some crow when he gets with a team and shows his skills.

    I’m just hoping he doesn’t wind up with the Patriots. I would hate to have to buy a Patriots Jersey. Would be great for Josh, though, to be with that franchise. Hate saying the words

    Why do they run a 40, when someone like josh only needs about three yards to get to the qb?
