UConn’s Byron Jones Destroys NFL Scouting Combine Broad Jump Record [Video]
Former University of Connecticut cornerback Byron Jones is now eligible for the NFL Draft.
Before the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week, he was relatively unknown.
After his scouting combine, though, he isn't unknown anymore. He broad jumped 12 feet, 3 inches, which could actually be a world record!
Here's how the broad jump works: You jump as far as you can from a standing position with no head start or anything.
This guy could jump from a standing position more than 12 feet. That is amazing and is something most of us could never dream of doing.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin had an 11-foot broad jump at the 2013 combine. It is also believed to have broken a 46-year-old world record of 12 feet, 2 inches, done by Norwegian Arne Tvervaag, the NFL's Bryan Fischer reported.
Jones also fell just short of Georgia's Chris Conley in the vertical jump, with 44.5 inches to Conley's 45 inches.
