He entered the NFL Scouting Combine as one of the most explosive running backs in college football.

Jahmyr Gibbs, a former Alabama standout, did not disappoint NFL Draft personnel, fans, or reporters at Indianapolis.

The native Georgian burned up the 40-yard dash, recording the second-fastest time (4.36) at his position.

He fell four-hundredths of a second behind Devon Achane of Texas A&M. Gibbs’ official time ranks eighth in the history of the Combine for running backs. His 10-yard split of 1.52 seconds tied for third at his position, showing teams his burst and explosiveness in and out of holes upon getting the football. Gibbs finished in the top 10 for the vertical jump, posting 33.5.”

The 5-foot-9, 199-pounder secured his draft status Sunday to be a first-round pick.

Gibbs provided marquee offense in his lone seasons at Alabama, totaling 926 rushing yards, 444 receiving yards, and 10 touchdowns. He was a consistent weapon out of the backfield for Bryce Young, leading the Crimson Tide’s receivers for catches (44). Gibbs has earned the comparison to Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints. It will be interesting to see which team takes him in April.
