The wide receivers took their turn at the 40-yard dash as day three of the NFL scouting combine got underway on Saturday. As expected, some solid times came in.

Former Nebraska star Trey Palmer turned in the fastest time of either group, coming in at 4.33u on his first attempt. That topped former TCU receiver Derius Davis, who led the first group of receivers with 4.37u and wound up tied with former Arkansas standout Matt Landers. Former West Virginia star Bryce Ford-Wheaton and former Oklahoma standout Marvin Mims were the only others to come in below 4.40 seconds.

All times are unofficial.
