40 yard times to reach by 30 CFL stars

It’s tough to set goals when you don’t know what the benchmark should be. I figured it’d be worthwhile to compile a list of 40 yard dash times for 30 of the top Canadian players carving their path in the CFL. Hopefully the list provides a starting point to set long term goals to aim for in the future, and allows you to create a plan in high school before you get left behind at the university level.

The list includes receivers, running backs, offensive linemen, defensive linemen, linebackers and defensive backs. All stats were compiled from cfl.ca or NCAA pro day reports.
