Vineland, NJ, Alum Runs Fastest RB Time at NFL Combine
A pair of Cape-Atlantic League alums are turning heads at the NFL Combine this week.
First former Cedar Creek wide receiver, Bo Melton, ran a 4.34 40-yard dash, which was fourth best among all wide outs.
On Friday Vineland alum, Isaih Pacheco, ran the fastest time among running backs with a 4.37 40-yard dash time.
Both players played their college football at Rutgers.
Pacheco, who played quarterback and running back while at Vineland, played running back at Rutgers, posting 2,452 yards on 562 carries good for 4.4 yards per carry and 18 touchdowns.
He has good NFL size (5'11/220) and vision, and running that time at the combine could firmly put him on NFL teams radar., if he wasn't already.
ESPN's Jordan Reid described the Vineland native as one of the best players at two college All-Star games and a player teams should be eyeing in the late rounds to their running back committee.
At Vineland, Pacheco rushed 154 times for 1,414 yards and 18 touchdowns and threw for 598 yards and three touchdowns on 43-of-81 attempts as a senior.
