Cornerback Byron Jones Just Crushed The NFL Combine Broad Jump Record, May Have Set A World Record

Former UConn cornerback Byron Jones just pulled off an astounding 12-foot-3 inch broad jump at the NFL Combine. The remarkable leap bested the previous mark by eight inches and may actually be the greatest broad jump of all-time.


This is an important skill for a defensive back to have when trying to pass the final test of faith on the way to find the Holy Grail.

Jones also turned in the second-best vertical jump at the scouting fest (44.5 inches).

Sadly, he wasn’t considered a top prospect coming in because of that pesky football-playing component.

I just tried the broad jump in the office and got about six feet, plus I hurt my knee so this is still damn impressive.
