Though all in-person pro days were canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, Dantzler was one of several players who took part in a Baton Rouge pro day and took video for scouts. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, LSU defensive back Grant Delpit ran his 40 in 4.39 seconds on the same field. 

Only four players at the NFL Scouting Combine posted an official time faster than 4.38 seconds and only one defensive back (Javelin Guidry).

Dantzler has seemingly made a significant jump from his performance in Indianapolis where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.64 seconds

According to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, Dantzler is the No. 9 cornerback in the 2020 NFL draft class.
