Epic Face Plant During NFL Combine

Syracuse's Shamarko Thomas recorded the fastest 40-yard dash for a defensive back at the NFL combine this week with 4:42, and inadvertently provided one of the showcase's funniest moments by tripping and falling face first into the turf.

No, we are not laughing at the guy. In fact, we are applauding his effort. Not only did he bust a gut to crank out this 40, but after the accident he simply brushed himself off, stuck out his chest and proudly moved on.

Thomas, who is 5'9" and weighs in at 213 pounds, had a vertical leap of 40.5 inches and did 28 reps of the 225 pound bench press.

More power to you Shamarko and best of luck in the draft!
