Miami punter Pat O'Donnell runs a 4.62 40-yard dash

Miami punter Pat O'Donnell might not get drafted, but there's no question the guy is a good athlete.

O'Donnell, who was second nationally in punting with a 47.1-yard average, ran a 4.62-second 40-yard dash Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine. One day earlier, he had 23 reps at 225 pounds in the bench press.

His 40 time tied the fastest by a kicker or punter since at least 2006; USC's David Buehler ran a 4.62 in 2009.

O'Donnell played one season at UM after transferring from Cincinnati. He also kicked off for the Hurricanes, with 37 touchbacks on his 79 kickoffs.

O'Donnell was second in the Big East in punting in 2012 at Cincinnati (41.8 yards per attempt), and 36 of his 75 kickoff attempts were touchbacks in '12.

His career punting average was 43.5 yards per attempt.
