INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Jalen Ramsey finished the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds Monday, easily beating Vernon Hargreaves as they vie to become the first cornerback selected in this year’s NFL draft.

Hargreaves, who played at Florida, was clocked at 4.50 in the final workouts at the league’s scouting combine.

Ramsey, of Florida State, also had the best vertical jump, 41½ inches, and the longest broad jump, 11 feet, 3 inches, among defensive backs.

NFL teams are trying to determine whether the 6-foot-1, 209-pound Ramsey will play cornerback or safety.

The biggest surprise Monday may have been Purdue’s Anthony Brown, who ran a 4.35 in the 40 and did 19 reps on the bench press to finish among the top three in both categories.
