Odds are the New York Giants won’t be selecting a wide receiver in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. If they were, though, John Ross would have to get consideration after breaking the NFL Combine record by running a 4.22 in the 40-yard dash.
The previous record was a 4.24 run by running back Chris Johnson.
Ross did not run a second 40 as his calves apparently tightened after the first one.
The Giants could certainly use a vertical threat, but they are expected to seek a bigger wide receiver, a pass-catching tight end or both instead of another smallish wide receiver. They have been connected to a number of the tight ends in the 2017 Draft class.
Still ... 4.22! That’s gotta get your attention.
Yes, Ross probably made himself some money Saturday.
