Syracuse defensive back Shamarko Thomas was impressive in Indianapolis during the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine and one of his shining moments was the 40-yard dash, which he ended with a tumble.
Thomas clocked in with a hand-timed 4.38 and an electronic time of 4.42.
His results in all of the on-field tests were numbers that will help his draft stock improve, but it is his ability to score a 4.4 forty despite faceplanting across the finish line. You read that right: Thomas did a faceplant at the conclusion of his first 40-yard dash attempt.
Here is the fall:You have to be impressed with his ability to finish strong even though he knew he was about to bite the dust. Well done, Shamarko. Well done.
