Nolan Smith’s 4.39 40-yard dash stuns Twitter

Georgia Bulldogs edge rusher Nolan Smith put on a show at the 2023 NFL combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. Smith, who is no stranger to big performances in Indianapolis, posted a 41.5-inch vertical jump.

Smith played at Georgia from 2019 to 2022. He finished his Georgia career with 12.5 sacks. Unfortunately, Smith’s senior season was cut short due to a torn pectoral muscle he suffered against Florida. The edge rusher continued to be a leader for the Bulldogs and helped Georgia win back-to-back national championships.

Smith is certainly one of the winners of the NFL combine and is now more likely to be selected in the first round of the 2023 NFL draft. Let’s take a look at the reaction to his incredible performance:
