2014 NFL Scouting Combine: Fastest 40-yard dash times for WRs

While he may not be the biggest of receivers (5-9 3/4, 189), Oregon State's Brandon Cooks followed up a very productive 2012 season with a huge year in 2013.

Cooks, the Biletnikoff award winner, finished with 128 receptions for 1,730 yards, the most in college football, and 16 touchdowns. He added two rushing touchdowns as well.

(Last season, he finished with 67 receptions for 1,151 yards and five touchdowns.)

This weekend, Cooks made himself some money with a strong all-around performance at the NFL Scouting Combine.

With a respectable 16 reps on bench press (at 225 pounds), Cooks was tied for ninth at the position despite being one of the smaller receivers. When it came to timed combine events, however, that is where Cooks really stood out.

Not only did Cooks run the fastest 40-yard dash among receivers, but he also demonstrated the ability to change directions quickly with the fastest shuttle times at the position as well: 20-yard shuttle of 3.81 and 60-yard shuttle of 10.72.

Here are the top 15 performances among wide receivers today in the 40-yard dash:

1. Brandin Cooks, Oregon State: 4.33
2. John Brown, Pittsburg State (KS): 4.34
3. Donte Moncrief, Mississippi: 4.40
3. Paul Richardson, Colorado: 4.40
5. Martavis Bryant, Clemson: 4.42
5. Jeff Janis, Saginaw Valley State: 4.42
7. Odell Beckham Jr., LSU: 4.43
