2012 NFL Combine: Records That Could Fall In Indianapolis This Weekend

The 2012 NFL Scouting Combine starts tomorrow in Indianapolis, and it gives the best players in the upcoming Draft a chance to improve, or at least solidify, their standing among the other prospects.

The premier event is always the 40-yard dash, as it is the best way to just write off or fall in love with a prospect based on one aspect of their physical makeup. Chris Johnson holds a share of the Combine record with a 4.24 40-yard dash, and we've all seen how well that has worked out for him. Here's a look at some of the other record holders at the Combine from Top End Sports and SB Nation.
