Reports are coming in that Jakeem Grant ran an "unofficial" 4.1, 40 yard dash. Everyone on site knew it was fast, but they were unsure how fast. Teammate Tevin Madison had a thought before anyone else... 4.1.
Then reports of some scouts having him in the 4.2s and even the 4.1s, Namely the Saints.
According to a source at the Texas Tech Pro Day the Saints scouts just clocked TTU WR Jakeem Grant at a 4.1 40 yard dash. 4.1!! Fastest ever— Luke Rodgers (@thelukerodgers) March 11, 2016
I do not rep him, but I'm at Texas Tech Pro Day & 2 teams text me saying they had Jakeem Grant clocked in "4.1s" on 40-yd dash w wind.— Erik Burkhardt (@ErikBurkhardt) March 11, 2016
Now like most combines or pro days, what one scout or team has might not necessarily be the official time. His official time was a much more pedestrian 4.34.
Grant is definitely making the most of his Pro Day (We will have a full recap upcoming) after not meriting an invitation to the NFL Combine. His stats so far are impressive.
Now if he ran against the WR at the combine where would he have ended up? Well the only WR I can find that ended up in the 4.3 range at the Combine were TCU's Kolby Listenbee (4.35) and Notre Dame's Will Fuller (4.32), So definitely in that ridiculously fast department.
Needless to say, Jakeem Grant maybe, pound for pound, the best football athlete in the country. #fastdontlie
