    LOOK: Aaron Rodgers dubs his NFL Combine 40-yard dash time '#fakenews'

    It has been 12 years since Aaron Rodgers made his way to Indianapolis for the NFL Combine. Back then, evaluators were weighing whether Rodgers or Alex Smith was worthy of the No. 1 overall selection (the 49ers settled on Smith and Rodgers didn’t go off the board until 23 picks later). And with the combine just days away, the NFL tweeted out this video of a fresh-faced, sprightly Rodgers running an impressive 4.71 40-yard dash in Indy a dozen years ago: According to NFLCombineResults.com, Rodgers’ 4.71 time is the same as Smith’s and Tim Tebow’s though four-tenths of s second behind the fastest quarterbacks ever recorded, Robert Griffin III (4.33 in 2012) and Michael Vick (4.33 in 2001).
