Penn State RB Saquon Barkley Ran A 4.38 40-Yard Dash On Monday, Fastest On The Team

Penn State fans must be really excited about Saquon Barkley's sophomore season. 

On Tuesday, we showed you video of the running back's ridiculous 390-pound power clean. This afternoon, we showed you video of his seven-rep, 495-pound squat. 

And, now, we can tell you that Barkley ran a 4.38 40-yard dash on Monday. It was the fastest time on the team.

That's a pretty nice improvement on last summer's time.

Here's Barkley showing off some of that quickness during a 20-yard shuttle.

College football program's 40 times are notoriously a little faster than those at the NFL Combine (Braxton Miller was clocked at 4.32 at Ohio State and ran a 4.5 at the NFL Combine, for example), but, if Barkley were to run a 4.38 at the NFL Combine this year, it would have been the eighth-fastest time of all participants.
