Terron Armstead 40-Yard Dash Record: NFL Combine Mark For Offensive Lineman Broken (VIDEO)

Offensive lineman don't tend to get a lot of attention unless they screw something up. But Terron Armstead, the agile offensive lineman out of Arkansas Pine-Bluff, grabbed the spotlight at the NFL Combine on Saturday for all the right reasons.

The 6'5, 306-pound Armstead posted a record-setting time in the 40-yard dash. According to NFL.com, he was clocked at 4.71 seconds (after unofficially being credited with a 4.65 during the NFL Network broadcast), shattering the Combine record for an offensive lineman, set by Allen Barbe in 2007 with a time of 4.84 seconds.

Armstead described his mobility as a "unique skill-set" on Saturday morning to Dane Brugler of CBSSports.com.

Perhaps even more amazing, Lane Johnson out of Oklahoma was right behind Armstead at 4.72 seconds.

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock compared Armstead's 40-yard dash time to a running back or wide receiver running a 40-yard dash in 4.1 seconds, according to The Washington Post.

How will the 40-yard dash performances of Armstead and Johnson affect their draft stock?
