WATCH: Deion Sanders Among Those Impressed With Troy Apke's Speed

The Washington Redskins' fourth-round pick Troy Apke brings incredible speed to the safety position.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder from Penn State recorded an impressive 4.34-second 40-yard dash at the 2018 NFL Combine.

Deion Sanders commented on the safety's speed during the 2018 NFL Combine: "He can RUN run!"

While Apke's quickness shocked Sanders, the former Nittany Lion has previously displayed his speed as a former high school track star winning the WPIAL's100-meter title his senior year.

Apke logged the fastest 40-yard dash time among safeties at the combine and the fourth fastest time overall. He was also a top-three performer in the vertical jump (41), three-cone drill (6.56), and 20-yard shuttle (4.03).
