INDIANAPOLIS — If the NFL Combine truly is the “Underwear Olympics,” then Miles Sanders may find himself on the podium with a medal draped around his neck.

While Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill had the fastest time among running backs Friday during combine workouts, Sanders had a formidable showing in virtually every event.

The Woodland Hills graduate and Penn State player ran the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds – Hill was tops at 4.40 – to finish tied for sixth among running backs in the event. Sanders also tied for sixth with a 36-inch vertical jump, and he was sixth in the broad jump. Sanders also recorded the best time in the 3-cone drill and was third in the 20-yard shuttle.

Pitt’s Qadree Ollison had a decent showing in the 40-yard dash, running it in 4.58 seconds, which tied for 13th among running backs.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
