Louisville is holding its pro day this morning and underrated draft prospect Reggie Bonnafon is already turning a few heads with his impressive 40-yard dash performance.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound quarterback-turned-receiver-turned-running back exploded for a 4.40-second 40 and prospectively improved his stock as we are now less than one month before the 2018 NFL Draft begins:

An outstanding athlete and one of the most versatile players entering the draft, Bonnafon switched to wide receiver and then quickly returned to the backfield to fill a need at running back after losing his starting position to Heisman winning-quarterback Lamar Jackson.
He adapted quite well, totaling 807 yards (6.1 per touch) and 13 touchdowns as a junior and senior.
Bonnafon will likely get a look as a receiver in the NFL and his freak athleticism could allow him to contribute to special teams right away. He’s expected to be taken on Day 3 of the draft, somewhere between the fourth and sixth round.
