He’s the heaviest player to run a sub-5.2 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine since 2006, per ESPN. Big man Dontari Poe may have him beat, though, running a 4.98 40-yard dash while weighing 346 pounds.Although Becton weighed in at 364 pounds at the combine, he said he expects teams will want him to lose some weight.”They definitely want me to lose [weight],” Becton said at the time. “I’m willing to lose weight. Whatever they want me to do. I think that was what everyone was looking for. The weight. To see if I came in heavy or not. I feel I had a great weight.”MORE NFL DRAFT:Full pick order | Top 100 players | SN’s latest mock draftMekhi Becton’s body fatFWIW: Louisville’s 6-foot-7, 364-pound OT Mekhi Becton, the largest player at this week’s Combine in Indianapolis, got measured with a mere 17 percent body fat.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 28, 2020This almost seems impossible, and it could be innaccurate following D.K.
