Safety Taylor Mays had quite a workout at the NFL scouting combine the past two days, even if his time in the 40-yard dash was not as ridiculously fast as originally reported this morning.
The NFL Network had Mays in 4.24 seconds, but that was with a hand-held stopwatch. The time was later altered to 4.37 and now is being listed as 4.43 seconds on the league’s web site. That’s still plenty fast for a player who weighs 230 pounds.
Mays, who played at USC for new Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and was an all-state selection and state sprint champion at O’Dea High School, also had a 41-inch vertical leap and did 24 reps with 225 pounds in the bench press.
