What was ray lewis 40 time in his combine
Previous to being drafted by the Baltimore Ravens, Ray Lewis ran a 4.58-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine in 1996. His time in the 40-yard dash was very good, as the NFL optimum for an inside linebacker like himself is considered to be 4.55 seconds, while the NFL minimum is considered to be 4.90.
The fastest ever 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine for a linebacker was 4.40 seconds, recorded by Jon Alston of Stanford in 2006, while the fastest 40-yard dash time at the 2013 NFL Combine was the 4.47 seconds recorded by Zaviar Gooden of Missouri.
Ray Lewis is known to have bench-pressed a high of 225 pounds. His height is 6 feet, 1 inch and his weight is 240 pounds. While his 40-yard dash time is just a little better than average, Lewis is said to have possessed great sideline-to-sideline speed throughout his career.
Lewis played for 17 years from 1996 to 2013 for the Baltimore Ravens, winning two Super Bowl championships in 2001 and 2013. After the Ravens won Super Bowl 47 on February 3, 2013 by the score of 34-31 over San Francisco, Lewis officially retired. On February 27, 2013, the Baltimore Ravens officially placed Ray Lewis and center Matt Birk on their retirement list. It's not expected Lewis will change his mind and come back, as he was able to end his career on such a high note.
