Shamarko Thomas stood out at the NFL Combine on Tuesday for two reasons.

First, the safety out of Syracuse clocked in with the fastest time of anyone at his position in the 40-yard dash. With five safeties still to run the 40, Thomas ran an official time of 4.42 seconds, barely edging Earl Wolff of N.C. State.

Second, Thomas faceplanted right after finishing the 40.

While the tumble caught the attention of some on Twitter, it doesn't seem like it's going to overshadow his impressive combine results.
