Miami cornerback Demarcus Van Dyke ran the fastest forty-yard dash at last week’s Scouting Combine, clocking a 4.28 official time. It was the third fastest forty since the year 2000.
Only Chris Johnson (4.24) and Stanford Routt (4.27) have been faster in the last decade.
Contacted by PFT on Saturday, Van Dyke revealed that he has private, on-campus workouts scheduled with the Eagles and Browns on the 14th and 17th of this month. The Eagles have a major need at right cornerback, while the Browns are pursuing help at the nickel position.
At the Combine, Van Dyke weighed in at 6-foot-1 and 176 pounds. In addition to the blazing forty time, “DVD” recorded a 33.5-inch vertical, 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, and 4.09 20-yard shuttle time.
PFT also asked Van Dyke if he’s heard rumors that the stopwatch at the Combine was broken, resulting in inaccurate official times.
“Naw,” he said.
So add smarts to Van Dyke’s impressive height-speed combination.
