    That is humanly impossible. The fastest time ever run by a human was Ben Johnson. He ran a 4.38 after 40 yards. Here's a link for some of you folks regarding NFL 40 times.

          There is no official world record for 40 yards.

              There was a WR on the 85 bears that ran a 4.0 40 time. So it is possible to run that fast. I can't remember his name right now, but he's a track athlete who is still running now and he is about 47.

              He was not very effective though, the guy would always trip and stumble. He was not a good all around player. So I have my doubts about this guy.

              Willie Gault is his name. He ran a 4.03 40 before his combine. He had to bulk up a bit and ened up getting a little slowwer, but his official 40 speed before his NFL carrer is 4.03.

                We need this guy back returning kicks!

                That was a nice run, but it was against Duke.

                  THere was a receiver for the Cowboys about 3 years ago who ran a 4.0 flat. The name escapes me as of now, but anyone who watched that documentary on them (I think it was on HBO) will have seen it.

                    No, there's no official record, but as the article says, it's possible to break down Johnson's run and see how fast he ran the first 40 yards. Stargazer is 100% correct; NFL 40-yard times are badly out of whack. Did Michael Vick really run a 4.25? Did Willie Gault really run a 4.03? I'm sure those are their official recorded times, but it seems obvious to me that they weren't actually that fast.
                    Vick really did run a 4.25, well it was definetly sub 4.3.

                    However, the times are very distorted, because don't forget, they don't have pads when they run these. So when they play in the game, they're all a bit slower because of the pads.

                      If anyone wants to know, Champ was allegedly timed at 4.19. He's a bit slower now for some reason but...

                      Like Sanders, Bailey switched teams after his fifth NFL season, at the height of his abilities. Bailey says he no longer runs like he did as a rookie, when he allegedly timed a 4.19 in the 40-yard dash. But he's still rabbit fast.

                        It was Randall Williams, who last I checked, saw time as a TE for the Raiders.
