2012 NFL Combine Workout Results: Luke Kuechly Runs Third-Fastest 40-Yard Dash Among Linebackers

Former Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly did his best to address any questions about his athleticism, officially running the 40-yard dash at the 2012 NFL Combine in 4.58 seconds.

Kuechly's time was third-best among all linebacker prospects who worked out Monday at the NFL Scouting Combine, trailing only Marvin Kendricks from California (4.47 seconds) and Zach Brown from North Carolina (4.50).

Kuechly has been considered a first-round pick since he declared his intentions to forego his senior season in favor of entering the NFL Draft, but questions still existed about whether he possessed elite athleticism at the position.

By running one of the fastest 40-yard dash times at the Combine, Kuechly certainly did nothing to hurt his stock.

Top 10 40-yard dash times among linebackers:

Marvin Kendricks, California, 4.47 seconds
Zach Brown, North Carolina, 4.50
Luke Kuechly, Boston College, 4.58
Demario Davis, Arkansas State, 4.61
Nigel Bradham, Florida State, 4.64
Najee Goode, West Virginia, 4.64
Lavonte David, Nebraska, 4.65
Dont'a Hightower, Alabama, 4.68
James-Michael Johnson, Nevada, 4.68
