Cal RB among NFL Draft Combine’s best performers so far

INDIANAPOLIS — Georgia running back Keith Marshall and Notre Dame receiver Will Fuller produced the fastest 40-yard dash times during workouts Saturday at the NFL’s annual scouting combine.

Marshall was clocked at 4.31 seconds. Fuller came in at 4.32. The only other player who was faster than 4.4 was TCU receiver Kolby Listenbee at 4.39.

Nobody seriously threatened Chris Johnson’s combine record of 4.24, which was set in 2008.

Louisiana Tech’s Jeff Driskel had the fastest time among quarterbacks, 4.56, with TCU’s Trevone Boykin and North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz next at 4.77.

Cal running back Daniel Lasco had the longest broad jump at 11 feet, 3 inches, and the best vertical jump at 41½ inches.

Cal head coach Sonny Dykes has been busy on Twitter rooting on his former players at the combine:
