04/28/13 - The common thread among Buffalo's eight draft picks is outstanding speed, with receiver Marquise Goodwin running the fastest 40-yard time at 4.34 seconds and kicker Dustin Hopkins running the "slowest" at 4.71. Getting younger and faster is something new coach Doug Marrone is happy about. "We are looking really for those playmakers, looking for when you send a group on the field people are worried about them getting behind them," Marrone said. "I think when you look at our overall team speed, our overall production from the players we have and the players we acquired, we have the ability to put quite a few playmakers on the field." - The Sports Xchange
03/29/13 - 2013 Texas Pro Day: Marquise Goodwin, WR (5-9, 177) - Goodwin is a world-class track and field athlete, and is a two-time NCAA champion (and Texas record-holder) in the long jump and a four-time All-American. Not surprisingly, he posted the fastest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Scouting Combine (officially at 4.27 seconds). At Texas’ pro day, Goodwin recorded a 42-inch vertical jump and an 11-foot-5 broad jump (topping his combine number of 11-foot-0). - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/29/13 - 2013 Texas Pro Day: Wide receiver Marquis Goodwin decided to rest on his blazing 4.27 40-yard dash from the combine, but did impress with a 42-inch vertical jump. He stood out catching the ball as well with the route quickness and vertical speed to make plays underneath and down the field. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/23/13 - The player who runs the fastest 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine won't just have bragging rights this year, they'll also get a contract offer from Adidas. The shoe company took out a full page ad in Saturday's Indianapolis Star announcing the unique deal. Adidas spokesperson Michael Ehrlich confirmed the contract offer to ESPN.com, but declined to say how much the contract would be worth.
Ironically, players aren't even allowed to wear Adidas on game day because the company doesn't have a marketing deal with the NFL. Under Armour and Nike are currently the only brands that can be worn during games.
Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is probably the early favorite in the clubhouse to run the fastest 40. Goodwin has been timed as fast as 4.26 and said on Friday that his goal is to break Chris Johnson's combine record of 4.24. The unofficial combine record is held by former Auburn running back Bo Jackson, who ran a 4.12 in 1986.
Speaking of Auburn, a darkhorse for the fastest 40 time is Tiger running back Onterio McCalebb. McCalebb has been timed as fast as 4.28 in the 40. One player who won't get the Adidas contract offer, but is worth mentioning, is Arkansas Pine-Bluff offensive lineman Terron Armstead. Armstead ran a 4.71 40 on Saturday, which is the fastest time ever run by an offensive linemen at the combine. - John Breech, CBSSports.com
