Xavier Worthy Raises Stock with Record-Setting 40-Yard Dash
4 months ago

The former Texas star wideout proved he is “Worthy” of a spot on your fantasy team after breaking the 40-yard dash record at the NFL scouting combine.

After running a record-setting 4.21-second 40-yard dash on his second attempt at the 2024 NFL Combine, former Texas standout Xavier Worthy cemented himself as a potential first-round pick and an extreme fantasy sleeper. Coming out of school, it was established that the 5’11, 165-pound Worthy could run. Just how fast? Well, fast enough to surpass John Ross, who had held the former 40-yard dash record since 2017 at 4.22 seconds.

 

 

 

Having been part of an elite receiving duo for Longhorns signal-caller Quinn Ewers alongside Adonai Mitchell this past season, Worthy immediately serves as the perfect complementary piece and asset to your fantasy roster. Although Worthy has a slight frame – especially for NFL standards – his game-breaking speed and off-the-charts athleticism make him a viable target in all formats. This was evident in his 10’11” broad jump and 41-inch vertical.  Furthermore, only Clemson’s Nate Wiggins (4.28) ran faster than 4.33 seconds at the combine, further illustrating the kind of next-level athleticism Xavier Worthy possesses.
