INDIANAPOLIS—The big boys on the dark side of the football are making some unofficial noise at Lucas Oil Stadium Monday morning.
Gone are the days of multiple 5.1 and 5.2 times in the 40-yard dash, as the first group of defensive linemen to hit the field flashed some legitimate speed.
In the marquee matchup of the morning, former Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley posted unofficial 40 times of 4.86 and 4.82 to beat out his main competition at the position in Alabama’s Marcell Dareus, who turned in times of 4.94 and 4.92.
Some of the other notable 40 times from the first group of defensive linemen include:
Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina: 4.8 and 4.86
Allen Bailey, DT, Miami: 4.77 and 4.76
Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa: 4.7 and 4.75
Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa: 4.81 and 4.82
Cam Jordan, DE, California: 4.71 and 4.74
Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue: 4.67 and 4.73
Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois: 4.95 and 5.06
