Mariota Shows Off Wheels At Combine
Marcus Mariota said his goal was to run a sub-five 40 at the Combine. He fell a little short of that, but still impressed with the fastest time (4.52) amongst all quarterbacks who ran Saturday.
Chip Kelly was dialed in.

Marcus Mariota’s unofficial 4.52 40-time is the fastest by a QB at the combine since RGIII ran a 4.41 in 2012.

Winston’s time caught some folks by surprise, though speed is not really his game.
Hundley, on the other hand, uses his wheels a bit more. His style has been compared to Randall Cunningham‘s. Here’s a look at his measurables:
