After all, this is the surface the Colts and two of their players, Marvin Harrison and Dwight Freeney, have told combine organizers that they consider very fast. In 2005, 11 defensive backs ran their 40-yard dash in times of 4.40 and under. Of the 11, six ran for times of 4.35 and under. Of those six, Carlos Rogers (4.31) and Fabian Washington (4.31) moved up into the first round. Twenty-nine of the linebackers in attendance ran and completed the on-field drills. Derrick Johnson and Michael Boley both ran times of under 4.60." "Six wide receivers have been selected No. 1 overall in the NFL draft. None of them are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame."
