Any defense that attempted to stop Trace McSorley during a tremendous three-year run at Penn State knows just how fast the quarterback really is. The former Nittany Lion showed off that speed during the NFL Combine on Saturday.
McSorley posted a 4.57 official time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, which was the fastest time among all quarterbacks participating. His toughest competition — likely Kyler Murray — did not take part in any of the events.
The former Penn Stater beat out Buffalo’s Tyree Jackson and North Dakota State’s Easton Stick, who finished second and third. Rounding out the top five was Mississippi State’s Nick Fitzgerald and Missouri’s Drew Lock.
Below are the times, as well as video of McSorley’s attempt.

During his career in Happy Valley, McSorley was one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the country. In addition to rewriting Penn State’s passing records, McSorley totaled 1,697 rushing yards and 30 touchdowns on the ground.
McSorley hasn’t been considered one of the better throwers in this year’s NFL Draft, but he’s certainly showing off his mobility and athleticism to the scouts.
