Auburn QB Cam Newton put up some more impressive numbers in the early portion of his workout at the scouting combine Sunday morning.
Newton ran his 40-yard dashes in unofficial times of 4.58 and 4.59 seconds, blazing times for a 6-foot-5, 248-pounder.
More impressive were his standing broad jump numbers of 10 feet, 6 inches and 10-3.
While the "gymnastics" portions of the process may not impress some, what he proved this morning was that he's an extremely explosive athlete.
The broad jump is one of the measures scouts look at to determine that burst a player needs on the field in many instances.
He's scheduled to throw soon, and we'll update that as the afternoon goes on.
