Virginia Tech cornerback Caleb Farley is a lock to be selected in the first round of April's NFL Draft, some analysts even have him as a top-10 pick. Battling with Alabama's Patrick Surtain II for the top spot at his position, Farley's stock may have been hurt a bit when he was unable to participate in the Virginia Tech Pro Day after sitting out the 2020 season.

However, his performance coach released a video today of his latest 40-yard dash that should alleviate any scouts' worries about his speed or athleticism. In the video Farley is clocked at an insane 4.28 seconds.

There's a reason "he's got 4.3 speed" is a saying. It's viewed as a benchmark to identify guys in the NFL with true top-end speed. While there have been a handful of guys in recent years to break the 4.3 mark, it's far from common.

Having video evidence of this from Farley on file should only boost his draft stock as the day approaches. We know now, if Farley isn't the first cornerback selected on draft day, his speed surely wasn't the thing that held him back.
