MIAMI — Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman put his speed to the test against three other NFL stars in a 40-yard race put on by Bounty.

Hardman, Las Vegas Raiders receiver Henry Ruggs III, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White and Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson teased the race on social media to see who was the “quicker pick.”

Hardman blazed past the competition clocking in at an insane 4.22 seconds. That would tie the NFL Combine record set by John Ross in the 2017 NFL Draft.

All but one participant improved on their combine 40-yard-dash time.
