Henry Ruggs was expected to be the fastest receiver available in the 2020 NFL Draft. His showing during the NFL Scouting Combine Thursday night further solidified that.

In his first attempt at the 40-yard dash, the Alabama wideout ran the distance in 4.27 seconds officially (it was initially listed at 4.28). That's blazing fast.
