Myrick's 4.28 Is Fastest Time Ever For B1G Player
March 7, 2017

Former University of Minnesota defensive back Jalen Myrick put on a show the NFL Combine yesterday. Myrick, who NFL.com named preseason as the fastest player in the Big Ten, backed up that status and more in Indianapolis.

The speedster from Georgia posted an official 4.28 in the 40-yard dash, which was the second-fastest time at the combine behind Washington’s John Ross who set a combine record with a time of 4.22. Myrick’s burst was the fastest time ever posted by a Big Ten player.

Myrick started 21 of 47 career games at Minnesota. He made 93 career tackles and broke up 21 passes. He also tallied five career interceptions and returned two of them for touchdowns. Myrick also returned kicks for Minnesota and ended his career with 43 returns for 1,052 yards, which included a 100-yard touchdown against Northwestern in 2014.
