The fastest player at this year's CFL combine almost wasn't invited. Concordia Stingers' defensive back Kristopher Robertson, who blew away the field in both the broad jump and vertical jump Saturday, continued his dominance of the combine Sunday, posting an event-best 40-yard dash time of 4.423 seconds that tied then-Laurier receiver Shamawd Chambers' combine-best time from 2012. (The overall record for the CFL combine is the 4.31-second mark Bishop's running back Steven Turner posted in 2010.) Video of Robertson's impressive run is available here. What's really remarkable is that Robertson's only at this event because he shone at a regional combine in Quebec City this week; this is the first year those league-organized regional events have been held, so in any other year, Robertson might never have made it to the combine. It makes you wonder how the scouts and executives who draw up the list of combine invitees missed such a promising talent.Read More »from Kristopher Robertson shines again in Sunday’s 40-yard dash: how did scouts miss him?
