See How Rich Eisen’s 40-Yard Dash Compares to John Ross’s (Video)
For several years now, the most (or only) interesting thing about the NFL combine is watching NFL Network announcer/analyst Rich Eisen, suit and all, try his hand at the 40-yard dash.
Not only is it wildly entertaining, but the money he raises benefits St. Jude’s children’s hospital.
This year, Eisen failed to break the 6-second barrier, clocking in at 6.02 during his second attempt:
Here’s a look at how his run stacks up against the likes of John Ross and some of the other speedsters at this year’s combine:

His final time of 6.02 is nothing to be embarrassed about (unless you’re an actual participant in the combine), but after seeing him meet with a sick little boy in between attempts, you sorta wished he would have miraculously found his way under 5 on his second try.
It’s not his all-time best, but it’s respectable for a guy in a suit. In fact, anything that doesn’t involve tearing a quad is a huge success.
