2020 NFL Draft

Which Browns player ran the fastest 40-yard dash at NFL Combine?


Unfairly or not, the 40-yard dash has emerged as the NFL Scouting Combine's main attraction for its TV broadcast.

Every variation of "four-point-something" scrolls across TV screens throughout the country as hundreds of NFL prospects give their best Usain Bolt impersonation. Even the offensive linemen, who run 40 yards in a straight line during a game as often as they throw passes, are subject to the scrutiny and unforgiving nature of the stopwatch.

As we ramp up our preparations for this year's Combine, which kicks off next week in Indianapolis, we hit the archives to see how current Browns fared in the 40, which, we must remember, is a very small piece of the puzzle in evaluating a prospect's worth to an organization.

We've highlighted the top 10 overall and singled out the best at each position.
