Former Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill made the most of his performance Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Hill clocked in the fastest 40-yard dash time of any back at 4.40 seconds.

His 40-inch vertical jump and broad jump of 10 feet, 10 inches, both were tops among backs. On Thursday, his 21 bench press reps landed him in the top 10.

His numbers put him in some impressive company with New York Giants star Saquon Barkley, who was drafted No. 2 overall last year out of Penn State.

Here are Hill’s measurements:

Hill, however, pulled up with a hamstring injury on his second 40-yard dash attempt and sat out the rest of the day’s events, including agility tests such as the three-cone drill and shuttle runs.

Hill’s performance likely impressed scouts and helped raise his draft stock, which has him going anywhere between rounds 2-5. He reportedly met with the Steelers and Chiefs. He’s expected to participate March 12 in OSU’s Pro Day in Stillwater.
