Chris Johnson Says He Could Have Run a 3.9 40-Yard Dash at NFL Combine
Chris Johnson I Coulda Ran a 3.9 40-Yard Dash … At NFL Combine!!!
Remember Chris Johnson‘s EPIC 4.24 40-yard dash at the 2008 NFL Combine???
Yeah, CJ2K tells TMZ Sports he coulda ran it in UNDER 4 seconds!!!
Chris says he came into the annual pre-draft event weighing around 200 pounds … but says if he had shed 30 or so lbs for the drills — he would’ve gotten into the 3s zone on that historic day!!!
“I think [I could have run it]. If I would have went to the combine at 165 …”
So, why didn’t the former NFL superstar do it!?!
“I probably would have dropped,” Chris tells us … “Ain’t nobody wanting to draft a first-round running back that weighs 165!”
Yeah, good call.
Chris ended up having a stellar career after his ridiculous 40-yard dash time regardless … becoming one of only seven players EVER to rush for more than 2,000 yards in one season.
In fact, Johnson tells us he’s still got it … the 33-year-old says if he really trained for it, he could still run a 4.2!!!
