The 40 yard dash has long been a way of evaluating the speed of football players by scouts for the NFL Draft. The origin comes from the average distance of a punt being 40 yards. Since 2000 players runners have been clocked using a laser. Prior to 2000 a human operated stop watch was used and thus times have been scrutinized. So what were the fastest times in 2015 compared to other years?
