NFL Scouting Combine 2017 results, top performers: Wide receiver Speedy Noil oddly has insane vertical

New, comments

Saturday it was the wide receiver's turn to take to the field for poking and prodding. No receiver helped his cause more than Washington's John Ross who set a new combine record in the 40-yard-dash, running a scorching 4.22. That mark beat out the previous record of 4.24 set by Chris Johnson in 2008.

Ross's calf tightened up so he ran just one time. He essentially dropped the mic, signed a deal with Nike and boned out, leaving others to try to stand out in the other events.

The standout among the other events was Speedy Noil's insane 43.5 vertical which is the second highest for a wide receiver since 2006 and the fifth highest at any position.

Here are the top performers in each event for the wide receivers:
