Texas A&M's Erik McCoy is the fastest offensive lineman at the NFL combine. McCoy, ranked as the No. 4 center in the 2019 draft by ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., ran the 40-yard dash in 4.89 seconds here in Indianapolis, edging out Boston College's Chris Lindstrom (4.91) and NC State's Garrett Bradbury (4.92). Washington State tackle Andre Dillard, who Kiper has ranked as a first-round prospect, ran a 4.96.

Just as a point of comparison, current Eagles tackle Lane Johnson, at 303 pounds at the time, ran a double-take worthy 4.72 40 at the 2013 combine.
