Jarret skips 40, would have posted over 4.7?

Dwayne Jarrett skipped the 40-yard dash at the combine today. Rumors are swirling that he was running the 40-yard dash in over 4.7 seconds at pre-combine workouts and that was the reason he didn't run today.

If true, it would be a blow to Jarrett's stock. No one expected him to have one of the faster 40-times, but a 4.7 would be slower than any receiver at the combine. A slow 40-time would worry NFL scouts that he'll have difficulty getting separation in the NFL.

He'll workout at USC's Pro Day, but the numbers he puts up there will be discounted by scouts. Pro Day workouts, especially USC's, are notorious for improving 40-yard dash times. They typically have faster tracks, and more favorable conditions then the combine.

Jarrett will end up running a 4.9 at USC Pro Day and falling to the 2nd round.
