Depending on your point of view, the 40-yard dash is either the most exciting aspect of the NFL combine or the most useless, overrated waste of time ever invented.

You might argue that football speed is different than straight-line speed without pads, and you wouldn't be wrong. But professional scouts arrive in hoards to see how fast players are for a reason, and for fans, it can be fun to find out exactly how fast your favorite speedsters can run.

How important the results should be in the draft process is a matter of opinion, but either way, there's something entertaining about watching some of the world's best athletes move their legs as fast as they possibly can.

We're taking a look now at the Top 25 teams in college football and the players from those schools who have run the fastest 40-yard dashes at the NFL combine.


Note: This includes times strictly from the NFL combine that can be verified. Most players on this list are from 1999-present day because prior to that year, only handheld times were recorded, and records kept were not as thorough or complete.
