Jordan Davis stuns NFL Combine with incredible 40 time
Georgia defensive lineman Jordan Davis may be able to claim the most impressive feat of the NFL Combine in 2022.
Davis, the 6-foot-6, 341-pound star of the Bulldogs defense, wowed scouts and executives on Saturday by posting an official 40 time of 4.78.

That is a solid 40 time in any context, but there is no precedent for a time like that at Davis’ weight. In fact, Davis actually outran Patrick Mahomes’ combine 40 time by two-hundreths of a second. His measurements are also ridiculous across the board by combine standards.
This is faster than Patrick Mahomes' 40 time (4.80) despite Jordan Davis weighing 116 pounds more than Mahomes https://t.co/jS2QJMwLwD

6-6 (96th percentile)
341 lbs (92nd percentile)
40-yard: 4.82 (96th percentile)
10-yard: 1.68 (85th percentile)
That run by Davis at that size is one of the wildest things the Combine has ever recorded

Davis is part of a ridiculous class of defensive players in this year’s draft. Georgia boasts a number of those players, and their school is going to produce a whole lot of picks on the first two days of the draft.
