MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Former Northern Iowa wide receiver Terrell Sinkfield was not invited to the NFL scouting combine. He's doing his best to make himself attractive for the upcoming draft, however.
Sinkfield was invited to Minnesota's pro prospect workouts on Monday, with several other prospects from the region.
He said he was told his fastest 40-yard dash was an astounding 4.19 seconds. His other times were 4.27 and 4.44, when he tripped during the run.
Times can vary from source to source, and Vikings director of college scouting Scott Studwell told the St. Paul Pioneer Press he didn't clock Sinkfield with any sub-4.3 times. But Studwell said he thought Sinkfield ``tested well.'' Even Sinkfield's cumulative time of 4.33 seconds would give him elite speed.
The 6-foot-1 Sinkfield went to Hopkins High School, a Minneapolis suburb.
