Former Terrapins Smith, Scott Run Fast 40 Times at NFL Combine

FAST.

The Maryland Terrapins might not have had the best football team over the past three or so years, but I'd put their combine performances up against any team in the country. (It's worth nothing, but hey, it's better than nothing). Unsurprisingly, Torrey Smith and Da'Rel Scott continued that tradition today at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

Scott was actually the fastest offensive player at the combine, running a 4.35 40 yard dash. That's not quite Chris Johnson or Jacoby Ford, but it's still fast. This probably guarantees that he'll be drafted, if there was any doubt about that, and gives his draft stock a nice bump.

Smith didn't disappoint, either. He ran a 4.43 40, tied for fourth among WRs, behind just two small-school wide receivers and Julio Jones. It may not be a huge boon for his draft stock like DHB's fast time was, but it definitely won't hurt and might solidify a first-round pick, depending upon how he interviews.

Torrey actually had a great vertical, too, good for 3rd among all offensive players at 41". That's a bit surprising, because Smith never had a reputation as a great leaper - he won a lot of jump balls now that I think about it, but it was rare for Maryland to utilize his vert. Really, despite the scouting reports, Torrey has never struck me as an absurdly good athlete - at least not in the way that DHB was; Torrey seems to do more with less - so the great scores are surprising me a bit. Not a ton, but a little.

Adrian Moten is the third Terrapin in Indy this weekend, but I haven't been able to find too many of his scores (I don't believe he's tested yet). He did interview with the Ravens, so hopefully he'll get picked up by the hometown team in a late round.
