Elijah Holyfield was the talk of the NFL Combine Friday, but for all the wrong reasons.

The former Georgia back competed in the 40-yard dash, and he ran a slow 4.78 and finished second to last in the event for running backs. Only Wisconsin’s Alec Ingold had a slower time at 4.89.

Remember, Holyfield left Georgia early and could have returned for his senior year. Sure, some say the NFL Combine is overrated. After all, former Georgia back Terrell Davis even ran a 4.72 40 at the Combine, and he had an illustrious career. Davis had game speed though. The question is whether Holyfield does, but he’s built like a brick house. He put up 26 reps on bench press Thursday, too.
