Johnny Manziel's speedy 40-yard dash impresses speed coach Published: February 24, 2014

Ryan Flaherty's secret was out on Sunday morning.

Yahoo Sports reports the track and field coach who trains select draft prospects for the combine knew how well Texas A&M teammates Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans would do in physical drills, especially the popular 40-yard dash. Flaherty understood there would be no more questions about Evans' breakaway speed once he ran. He knew that Manziel's athleticism would solidify his resume as perhaps the top quarterback in the draft.

Evans, expected to run maybe a 4.7-second 40-yard dash, ran a 4.47 on Sunday morning. That's fairly incredible for a 6-foot-5, 231-pound receiver. Manziel ran a 4.56, a great time for a quarterback. That validates the great running ability the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner showed in college.
