Reports: Terrell Sinkfield posts 4.19
Northern Iowa receiver Terrell Sinkfield reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in 4.19 seconds at a pro day held Monday at the University of Minnesota.
The blazing time came in his second attempt at the 40 and was so fast that he was asked to run a third time, something none of the other prospects who participated in the pro day was asked to do, according to FoxSportsNorth.com.
Running Away With It
Amid reports that N. Iowa WR Terrell Sinkfield ran a 4.1 40-yard dash, we take a look at the fastest official 40 times at the NFL combine since 2006.

Sinkfield reportedly stumbled on the third attempt but still ran a 4.44.
"I knew it was good when I finished," Sinkfield told the website of his 4.19 time. "I was pretty happy, so I came back. I thought I messed up when they said go again. I'm like, 'Dang, why do I have to run again?' "
Sinkfield reportedly ran 4.27 in his first attempt for an average of 4.3 on the three runs.
"I was trying to shoot for a 4.19. I knew it was good when I finished," Sinkfield told The (St. Paul) Pioneer Press. "The fastest I've done [before Monday] was 4.2. I was running 4.3s in high school."
Scott Studwell, the Minnesota Vikings' director of college scouting, however, told The Pioneer Press that he didn't have any times under 4.3 for Sinkfield.
"He ran in the high 4.3s. He can run. He ran fast. He tested well," he told the newspaper.
The scouting combine record time in the 40 is the 4.24 run by Chris Johnson at the 2008 event.
