2017 NFL Combine results: Mitch Trubisky, DeShaun Watson run identical 40-yard dashes

Time for another tiebreaker.

Well, this is awkward! The quarterbacks are running their 40 yard dashes today, and DeShaun Watson and Mitch Trubisky ran identical 4.67 second 40s, per Charles Robinson.

Trubisky and Watson are two of the four prospects viewed as potential first round picks. DeShone Kizer and Patrick Mahomes are in the discussion as well. And it is safe to say the 49ers are evaluating all of them.

The 40 time is likely one of the least useful measures of a quarterback. However, if two or more of the quarterbacks and up close together, the team will look for any possible way to differentiate between them. For the time being we can eliminate 40 yard dash time for Trubisky and Watson. Both will likely run it again at their pro day workout, but again, I feel like it is mostly a tiebreaker. Of course, if they need another tiebreaker, the hot sauce test remains a viable alternative.
