Ohio State's Darron Lee Posts Fastest 40-Time Among LBs At NFL Combine

The NFL Combine will begin to wrap things up on Monday, but Sunday was all about linebackers and defensive lineman making a lasting impression on scouts, coaches and front office personnel. Most backers and linemen ran the 40, but one - former Ohio State LB Darron Lee - stood out above the rest during the foot race. 

According to NFL.com, Lee officially clocked in at 4.47 seconds, recording the only sub-4.5 performance of the day. Georgia's Leonard Floyd posted an impressive 4.6, while former Alabama star Reggie Ragland posted a 4.72.
