Mike Weber likely made himself some money with his 40-yard dash time.
Weber ran an unofficial 4.49 on his first attempt and then solidified his time with 4.48 seconds unofficially on his second attempt. That has since been corrected to a 4.47 second official time.

The impressive showing in the 40-yard dash shows that Weber has speed to match his size and strength. Weber weighed in at 5-foot-10 and 211 pounds and already impressed with his 22 reps of 225 pounds.
Before the combine, Weber was getting consistent fourth and fifth round projections. This performance could boost his stock substantially.
