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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
