North Carolina A&T's Cohen among leaders in 40-yard dash at NFL combine

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana — Greensboro native T.J. Logan, a North Carolina alum, had the best time in the 40-yard dash at 4.37 seconds during Friday’s workouts at the NFL scouting combine, while N.C. A&T’s Tarik Cohen was third in 4.42 seconds.

Christian McCaffrey didn’t fare well on the bench press, managing 10 repetitions of the 225-pound test.

That’s about half of what running backs usually average at the annual gathering and it immediately set social media abuzz over the 2015 Heisman Trophy runner-up’s upper body strength.

The Stanford star running back, however, made up for that poor performance by running a 4.48 in the 40-yard dash, ahead of LSU’s Leonard Fournette, who ran a 4.51.
