SALT LAKE CITY — Former Utah nickel back Javelin Guidry showed off his track speed at the NFL scouting combine Sunday.

Guidry, who was the 100-meter high school state track champion in two states and won the 60-meter dash at the 2019 UW Invitational, clocked a 4.29-second 40-yard dash during the final day of the combine.

That time was tops among all defensive backs who worked out Sunday, and the second-fastest 40 time at this year’s combine, behind only Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs III (4.27).

“I ran track just to get faster for football,’’ Guidry told ESPN this week. “My dad put me in it at a young age. I obviously succeeded in it in Texas, winning the state championship, and in (California,) running a 10.13 and winning the state championship, as well. ... He just wanted me to get faster for football, but it’s a blessing to be able to run that sport. But football’s my main sport.’’

The Draft Network’s Trevor Sikkema reported Guidry’s 40 time puts him in the 98th percentile at his position, and he’s only the seventh cornerback to run a sub-4.3 40.

Guidry also was solid on the bench press with 21 reps, tied for third-best among defensive backs. That’s the most reps by a player to run a sub-4.3 40 since 2003, per NFL Research.

Around social media

Former Utah safety Julian Blackmon was also at the combine but did not participate in drills, as he recovers from an injury. He did, however, show his support for the other three Utah secondary players — part of a school record nine Utes at this year’s combine — participating in Sunday’s in-field workouts.

“Proud of y’all boys man,” Blackmon wrote on Twitter. “Didn’t get to compete but watching y’all do your thang was worth being there.”
