Yesterday we asked what NFL Combine record does Scott Starks hold? Well here is the answer along with even more answers to wow your friends with:
The fastest 10 yard dash recorded in the combine was in 2008 by Chris Johnson with a time of 1.4 seconds. Chris was tied by Justin King in 2008 and by Cedric Peerman in 2009. Chris Johnson also owns the “official” 40 yard dash with a 4.24 time although Bo Jackson was “supposed” to have been hand clocked at 4.12 seconds in 1986.
The highest recorded vertical jump was recorded by Gerald Sensabaugh in 2005 with a leap of 46 inches. This was and remains an insane leap given Bob Sanders was the best in 2004 with a leap of 41.5 inches. In 2008 Carl Stewart set the best leap of the year with a 39.5 inch leap.
The fastest 3 cone drill was Sedrick Curry in 2000 with a time of 6.45 seconds. Scott Long tied him in 2010. Malcolm Jenkins set the high mark in 2009 with a time of 6.59. There are really no NFL stars that showed a “best time” in this test.
The longest broad jump record is owned by Scott Starks with a 2005 jump of 11′ 05″. He shares the record with Justin Fargas who set the actual record in 2003. This record will be broken, a lot of jumps of 11 feet plus are recorded almost every year.
What is interesting to me I found out was that Bob Sanders is all of 5′ 08″ yet set the 2004 best 10 yard sprint of 1.5 seconds and the year’s best vertical 41.5″. He also posted a 40 yard dash time of 4.34 seconds. No wonder the Indianapolis Colts had Maurice Jones Drew on their draft board just after us. They know what good things in small packages look like.
What is also interesting is in our survey, the choice the fewest of you thought Scott Starks record was in was the broad jump. Learn something every day! Thanks for stopping by!
