One of Mike Mayock's "Top 5" running backs at the 2016 NFL Combine, former Louisiana Tech running back Kenneth Dixon posted a 4.54 40-yard dash time in his first attempt, and a 4.64 mark in his second go. Here is Dixon's first run.

Dixon's first run time was later equaled by former Alabama running back, and the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Derrick Henry (take that as you will - is that good for Dixon or bad for Henry?), but Henry improved his time in his second run (4.52).
Dixon, and former UAB running back Jordan Howard, have been highly spoken of during NFL Network's coverage of the combine, and Dixon's time certainly helped back up Mayock's Top 5 ranking.
Howard, who sustained ankle and knee injuries with the Indiana Hoosiers this past year, will run the 40 at IU's pro day, and not in Indianapolis.
