Football is a game of inches, and so are its records. Yesterday at the NFL Combine, Dri Archer, running back from Kent State, ran his 40-yard-dash in 4.26 seconds, two-tenths of a second slower than Chris Johnson’s record. In 2007, Johnson completed the legendary sprint in 4.24 seconds, and is now exhaling a sigh of relief, knowing that his mark will stand.

Nonetheless, Archer’s mark is still impressive and will have scouts taking a second, third and fourth look at his tape before the NFL Draft. Watch his two runs below. He clocked unofficial times of 4.29 and 4.28 seconds, but it was his first run that received an official time of 4.26 seconds.
