Christian McCaffrey runs 40 faster than Dalvin Cook, Leonard Fournette at NFL Combine
By Matt Conner
Christian McCaffrey bested Leonard Fournette, Alvin Kamara and Dalvin Cook in the 40-yard dash at the 2017 NFL Combine.
There’s a fight at the top to be the first running back off the board in the 2017 NFL Draft. For a very deep class, there are a few prospects fighting for that spot and Christian McCaffrey is doing his part to make sure teams consider him for the best overall RB.
McCaffrey bested his peers like Leonard Fournette and Dalvin Cook, two runners typically picked to be the first backs selected in the draft, with a slight difference in official times in the 40-yard dash in Indianapolis.
Cook was expected to likely win out of the draft’s biggest names at the position, but McCaffrey has always been fast. Draft analyst Mike Mayock noted that McCaffrey was happy with anything in the 4.4 time range.
McCaffrey has already met with the Denver Broncos and has said it would be “awesome” to play for them. Given his performance at this year’s Combine so far, he should expect several other teams to compete with Denver for the chance to draft him.
