Future Eagles at the time, Miles Sanders and Jalen Hurts had nice showings during the 40-yard dash.
Franchise quarterback Jalen Hurts blazed through the 40-yard dash event and made every scout take notice that he was a prospect that they needed to keep an eye on. He posted a 4.59-second official time during the event, but that would be the second fastest time for quarterbacks in the 2020 combine. University of Hawaii’s Cole McDonald took home the gold so to speak with a 4.58-second 40-dash time.
Check out a much younger version of QB1 blazing through the event below!
Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Sooners
Miles Sanders, Penn State Nittany Lions
Pennsylvania’s own Miles Sanders had a lot of pressure on him during his 40-yard dash during the 2019 NFL Combine because everybody wanted to see if he could surpass his former Nittany Lion teammate, Saquon Barkley’s 4.40 second time.
Sanders may have not beaten Barkley, but he was no slowpoke, as he registered a 4.49 official time at the event. His time put him just outside the top five fastest running back at the combine that year.
