The NFL scouts didn't believe their stopwatches.

They were the ones who timed the run. They were the ones who saw it happen right in front of their faces. But they didn't believe it.

Nevada's Dontay Moch had just run a 4.18-second 40-yard dash. That time would be among the fastest ever recorded. In disbelief, they made him run again.

He clocked a 4.08 in his second try. That time is almost inhuman. So, they made him run again.

On his third and final try, he covered the 40 yards in 4.2 seconds. Maybe he was a little tired, but even that time is run by only the most nimble wide receivers and cornerbacks.

Imagine a 6-foot-1, 245-pound defensive end like Moch running it. Unthinkable.

I mentioned him in an earlier thread because I was impressed with his speed and size. Most that responded dismissed him because they considered him better suited for a 3-4 defense.

Other interesting note about him is that he played Safety in high school and DE in college so he would have experience in pass coverage as well pass rush. However with the workout numbers is is likely to post at the combine....he may go earlier than we care to draft him.
