WATCH: Jalen Myrick breaks B1G record for fastest 40-yard dash at combine
John Ross’ record-breaking 4.22-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine on Saturday made him the new all-time leader in the event.
On Monday, the B1G also got a new all-time leader in the 40-yard dash.
Former Minnesota cornerback Jalen Myrick turned in a blistering time of 4.28 seconds (it was unofficially a 4.29). That bested the B1G’s all-time combine mark of 4.31 seconds, which was tied by former Ohio State receiver Curtis Samuel on Saturday.
Here was Myrick’s record-setting run:

Myrick’s record pushed him past four B1G players that recorded 4.31 seconds with electronically-timed runs (since 1999).
Including Ross, only four players in the last decade recorded faster 40 times than Myrick’s 4.28. It also would’ve ranked first among all players at the 2016 combine.
NFLdraftscout.com had Myrick rated as the No. 24 cornerback in the draft coming into the weekend. The former Minnesota defensive back started 21 games in his career and recorded 93 tackles, 21 pass breakups and five interceptions.
Myrick will definitely have a few more eyes on him after his dazzling 40.
