Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk thinks he can run fast at the Scouting Combine. Very fast.
Seastrunk said on FOX Sports 1 that he believes he can run the 40-yard dash in faster than 4.3 seconds, which would likely make him the fastest player at the entire Combine.
“My focal concern is the 40,” Seastrunk said. “I set a goal in my head to run below a 4.3 and that’s my goal to keep striving for. I know I can do it. It’s within reach.”
Since 2006, only four players have run faster than 4.3 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the Combine: Chris Johnson (4.24 in 2008), Marquise Goodwin (4.27 in 2013), Jacoby Ford (4.28 in 2010) and Demarcus Van Dyke (4.28 in 2011). All four of those players weighed less than 200 pounds at the Combine, and Seastrunk says he can turn heads by running a sub-4.3-second 40-yard dash at 210 pounds.
“There’s not a lot of running backs that’s my size that’s running below a 4.3. That’s outstanding. That’s unreal,” Seastrunk said.
We’ll see soon whether Seastrunk’s 4.3 speed is real.
