Best Answer

James Johnson from swainsboro high school ran a 4.01 on a laser

NB: The user providing the above answer hasn't provided any proof of this event and it doesn't show in a Google search - apart from this webpage. The 'official' record is 4.24, but the 'electronic timer' is started by hand and the players competing in this event at the NFL Combine do not wear helmet and kit.

The fastest 40 yard dash on record in Bo Jackson at 4.12 seconds. This however was before the NFL had official electronic timing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

The fastest on record since the official timing is held by Tennessee Titan RB Chris Johnson. His time was 4.24 seconds.
