Bryce Ford-Wheaton Delivers on Proclamation, Runs 4.38 in 40-Yard Dash
INDIANAPOLIS – Bryce Ford-Wheaton said he was going to “put on a show” during drills at the NFL Combine, and he did exactly that.
The West Virginia wide receiver product was clocked at an impressive unofficial 4.38 time in the 40-yard dash. That number surely delivers on his confidence.

He wouldn’t put a number on what he thought he would run after predicting he would show off his speed, but demonstrating that kind of speed may be just what he needed to move up draft boards and make NFL teams fully aware of his ability.
Measurement wise, Ford-Wheaton was recorded as standing 6’4” and weighing 221 pounds, giving him a really nice big size to go along with his speed.
He caught 62 passes for 675 yards in 2022, although that’s only 100 more yards than he had the year prior with Wright ahead of him on the depth chart. He scored seven touchdowns, but four of those came in the first two weeks of the season.

I always knew Wheaton could move but a 4.38 that’s impressive. Way to go Bryce that time will get you a hard look with NFL teams alone.

Stats are nice, but put a uniform on him, a D back in front of him and he’s just average and has too many drops and takes too many plays/games off ! Wish him well, but he could have used another year playing WELL game in and game out to earn the big bucks!
