WATCH: J.T. Barrett runs the 40-Yard Dash at the NFL Combine
COLUMBUS, Ohio —
The most prolific quarterback in Ohio State football history is putting his skills to the test at the NFL Combine. This morning Barrett took part in QB drills with the rest of the top quarterbacks in the country.
Barrett posted a solid time in the 40-yard dash, sprinting to a 4.71 performance on his second attempt. His time was the second-fastest among QBs in the first group, ahead of top QB prospects Josh Allen (4.76) and Sam Darnold (4.86).
Earlier this week Barrett measured in at 6'1" 220 lbs., with 32-inch arms and 9-7/8 inch hands.
Barrett's resume at Ohio State speaks for itself, as the Wichita Falls, TX, native holds passing records in nearly every category but still some doubt Barrett's ability to perform at the next level.
The only three-time captain in OSU history hopes to be selected in this year's NFL Draft and is on the border of being a late-round selection. Building upon the strong 40-time will certainly help his case.
