Onterio McCalebb runs 4.34 40, Chris Johnson's combine record safe
Onterio McCalebb ran a 4.34 40-yard dash on Sunday at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine, meaning Chris Johnson's combine record of 4.24 is likely to survive another year.
INDIANAPOLIS -- For a brief time, Auburn running back Onterio McCalebb looked poised to topple Chris Johnson's NFL Scouting Combine 40-yard-dash record of 4.24 seconds. But his unofficial time of 4.21 took a monster hit when it became legit and he's been credited with a 4.34 official time.
Those three trail Texas wideout Marquise Goodwin, who posted a 4.27 official time.
McCalebb ran a 4.21 and 4.27 unofficially, but there weren't a whole lot of people that believed his official time would take down CJ2K, including the man who set the mark himself.
Listen 4.21 thats childish— Chris Johnson (@ChrisJohnson28) February 24, 2013
That being said ... Johnson still wasn't 100 percent sure his record was safe.

You could argue that Bo Jackson's 4.12 40 time at the 1986 combine is the greatest run of all time. But it was before the league started making the times "official," so Johnson technically holds the record.
And, having survived the wideout and running back workouts, it's a record he's likely to keep a grip on for at least one more year.
