Records are meant to be broken.

We got a reminder of that last year when Washington’s John Ross broke the NFL Scouting Combine record with an absurd 4.22-second 40-yard dash. Ross broke Chris Johnson’s record, which stood since 2008.

The question everyone wants to ask heading into the combine this weekend is if another prospect can one-up Ross’ blistering time.

Perhaps it could be someone from the B1G. After all, former Minnesota defensive back Jalen Myrick set the B1G record last year with a 4.28-second 40. Just besting Myrick would be no small feat.

Here are the four former B1G players who could best Myrick and Ross this weekend in Indianapolis.

1. Denzel Ward, Ohio State CB

The former Buckeye cornerback is an obvious place to start. He might’ve been the fastest player in all of college football in 2018. You’d be hard-pressed to find many faster players in Indy.

The first-round prospect enters the weekend with some high expectations. He reportedly clocked in a 4.23-second 40 at Ohio State, which wouldn’t be much of a surprise. Ward is a former high school track star who should be well ahead of the curve in a timed setting like this.

It’s always interesting to see how guys like Ward manage expectations. He’s one of the few guys who would probably disappointed with a 4.4-second 40. That, plus measuring in at less than 5-10, wouldn’t be ideal for Ward heading into a key weekend.

But keep in mind that Ward sat out the Cotton Bowl and had a little bit of extra time to train for this. Who knows what a couple months of combine-specific drills are going to do for the speedy corner.

2. Saquon Barkley, Penn State RB

I don’t care if Barkley is heavier than the rest of the record-breaking hopefuls. His form in game speed is a sight to see. Does his head ever moves while he runs?

I can’t wait to see what Barkley does in the 40 with a couple months of training. He ran a 4.33-second 40 last year before he had any real coaching on his sprints.

I fully expect him to improve on that and perhaps even crack the top 3 of the all-time B1G leaderboard. No running back has ever appeared on that list. With the exception of Johnson, it’s not like running backs dominated the overall leaderboard, either.

Something tells me that Barkley is going to blow a few running back stereotypes out of the water in Indy.

3. Rashard Fant, Indiana CB

Fant is a guy who could benefit greatly from recording a Myrick-like 40 time. He might not have been on enough radars nationally, but Fant’s lightning speed was why he recorded a program record 53 pass breakups. The 3-year starter has a chance to turn some heads an hour from Bloomington.

In high school, Fant ran a 4.37-second 40, so he’s a solid bet to run somewhere in the 4.3-range as long as he’s healthy. That’d be huge because at 5-10, 175 pounds, Fant isn’t going to wow anyone with his size. The best way for him to make sure he’s on everyone’s board is by showing that straight-line speed.

Myrick’s time caught people by surprise a year ago. Fant could do the same on Monday.

4. D.J. Moore, Maryland WR

For those of you who are sick of hearing me profess my love for the former Terp, I apologize. At 215 pounds, Moore isn’t someone many will expect to post a blistering 40, but I’m convinced that he’s one of those guys who’s faster than he looks. He has the ability to make his straight-line running look so easy.

People might forget that he’s been burning future NFL defensive backs since his freshman year:

I think Moore gets knocked because he’s not explosive coming out of his breaks, and while that’s obviously important for the 40, his next gear more than makes up for it.

Last year, Chris Godwin was a good case of a guy who didn’t look as fast on film as he did in Indy (he ran a 4.42-second 40). I think Moore has the ability to do that and then some.

Moore is a quiet, lunch pale to work player who could easily wind up making a whole lot of noise on the big stage.
