It was the best time by a defensive tackle in 20 years. The other DTs weren’t close to Kancey when it came to 40 times.
One of these is not like the rest…
Calijah Kancey is truly different 👏

Kancey’s NFL Draft status will be determined by much more than just his 40 time, but his Thursday performance provides a boost to an already impressive resume for an All-American defender.
