Watch Johnny Manziel run his 40 compared to Colin Kaepernick running his 40

Joe Robbins

NFL Network put together video of Johnny Manziel running his 40-yard dash, laid over Colin Kaepernick running his own 40-yard dash.

Fooch's Note: Kap ran a 4.53 40 at the 2011 NFL Combine, not 4.63. The NFL tweet is incorrect

Today was the day for quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs to show their stuff in a variety of drills. We got the passing drills for quarterbacks, but we also got to watch them run the 40-yard dash. The 40 is not exactly the most valuable of drills, but it is a staple, and something people watch with bated breath.

Johnny Manziel ran his 40 earlier today, and his unofficial time clocked in at 4.56. NFL Network posts hand-clocked 40 times, and more often than not, those hand-clocked times are faster than the electronic Combine clock. We've since learned that Manziel ran a 4.68 40, but we could already tell 4.56 was probably going to be a touch faster than reality.

When NFL Network wants to mix things up a bit, they'll take one player's 40 video, and lay it over another player. Even when we know the 40 times, it is interesting to compare the speed and the form. After Manziel ran his 40, they laid him over Colin Kaepernick's own 40. They tweeted it out as follows:

This came before official 40 times were released, but based on this video, it was clear that Manziel did not run a 4.56. It was still a strong run, but a touch off from Colin Kaepernick's official 4.63.
