Former Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs might have just become the star of this year's NFL Combine in just his first 40-yard dash. Ruggs posted a 4.28-second 40 time in his first attempt.

Ruggs was already a top wide receiver prospect, but he may have just made a case to be a top-10 pick in April. Exceptional 40 times are a highly-valued asset among NFL scouts, particularly at the wide receiver position.

On tuesday Ruggs made the statement that he wants to break Ross' 40 time, and while he fell short of breaking the all-time mark on his first try, his performance will certainly give scouts and analysts something to talk about leading up to the Draft. Not to mention, he still has a few more attempts.
