Mississippi State's Montez Sweat uncorked a 4.41-second 40-yard dash Sunday, the fastest time by a defensive lineman at the NFL scouting combine since 2006.

Teams will certainly select players in next month's draft on their ability to play football, but just texted a long-time scout to simply ask most impressive performances in the 40-yard dash by an impressive group of defensive players who have worked out Sunday and quickly got back "Williams, Sweat, White.'' That would be Alabama's Quinnen Williams (4.83 at 303 pounds), Mississippi State's Montez Sweat (4.41 at 260 pounds) and LSU's Devin White (4.42 at 237 pounds). Now the personnel folks will fit those times into what they see in the game video. It should be noted the same scout added "really liked what (Nick) Bosa did.'' All in all it has been a big day in Indianapolis for the front seven guys.
