Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson turn in impressive showing at 40-yard dash during NFL Combine
Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson are taking part in the NFL Combine, and the wide receivers are turning some heads with their first turn at the 40-yard dash in Indianapolis.
With his first run, Olave turned in a blistering 4.26 (unofficial) in the 40-yard dash. To this point, that is the second-fastest time among wide receivers at the combine. Tyquan Thornton of Baylor ran a 4.21 (unofficial).
Here’s what it looked like, but don’t blink:

While Wilson was a tad slower, he still beat the elite 4.40 mark. Wilson’s first run clocked in at 4.37.
Both Buckeye receivers have been projected as first-round picks, and Thursday’s early runs in the 40 should only solidify those projections.
