This past week fans got a glimpse at the 2017 NFL season with the NFL combine in Indianapolis.
As per usual there were big time standouts that created a lot of social media buzz.
One of the bigger stories to come out of the combine was WR John Ross’ 4.22 40-yard dash. In case you were wondering, that’s one of the fastest 40’s ever.
If you want a visual of what that looks like, watch here:
Officially the fastest 40-yard dash… EVER.

Of course #CowboysNation took notice of this and many fans were excited:
Idk why I feel like the #DallasCowboys are going to draft John Ross if he falls to 28.. He could really help our offense though.

Pre-combine favorite DB Jabrill Peppers also had an outstanding week. The hype around him is real throughout #CowboysNation thanks to his stellar combine and his defensive acumen:

Cowboys need to take the best pass rusher available when they pick or they need to take Jabrill Peppers if he's available

I Hope Jabrill Peppers Go To The Cowboys 💯✊️
