The speed drills finally happened for some skill players on Friday. The offensive linemen and the running backs completed their on-field workouts, including the ever popular 40-yard dash. Alabama's Derrick Henry impressed once again. After showing off a 37-inch vertical, he ran a 4.54-second 40. Physically, he looks like the complete package. Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott was slightly faster at 4.47.

There were some notable backs who didn't run it -- Devontae Booker, Jonathan Williams and Jordan Howard.

Who "won" the 40 among running backs? Georgia's Keith Marshall, who, at 5-11 and 219 pounds, ran it in 4.31 seconds. That's fast.
