Rich Eisen Sets Personal Best Time of 6.18 Seconds in 40-Yard Dash Wearing a Suit at NFL Scouting Combine

In what has become a must-see event, NFL Network's Rich Eisen set a personal best in the 40-yard dash with a time of 6.18 seconds. This marks the seventh time Eisen has run the 40-yard dash in a suit, improving on the time of 6.24 seconds that he ran in 2010.

New to this year's run was the introduction of the UA E39, an Under Armour compression shirt fitted with electronic sensors that track the body's natural motion and biometric signals, which are then sent to a tiny device on the front of the shirt. Eisen was equipped with the UA E39, generating 2.0 G-forces during his run. Or, as Mike Mayock astutely points out, "20 percent of [the G-forces generated by] Prince Amukamara."

NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders believes that Eisen would beat "the lead guy from every network" in the 40-yard dash. But it was analyst Charles Davis who put out the following challenge:

 "Throwing it out there now: you want a piece of Rich Eisen next year, you want some of this? [The] lead guy from every network, you meet us here [at the Combine]. Right here next year. [In a] suit, we'll give you the shoes. Rich Eisen, he will take you on and he will take you out."
