INDIANAPOLIS — Nate Wiggins is one fast dude. The Clemson cornerback and one of the top prospects at the position at the NFL Scouting Combine showed off his speed at Lucas Oil Stadium on Friday.

During Friday's 40-yard dash, Wiggins posted an incredibly 4.28-second time. Through the first two days of workouts, that was the fastest time this year.

Below is the clip of Wiggins. Don't blink, otherwise you could miss it.

The ridiculous aspect of Wiggins' time? Apparently he's not satisfied. Per, the cornerback from Clemson believes he can post an even quicker time in the 40-yard dash.

Unfortunately for Wiggins, his lightning-fast time cost him. Immediately after running the event, he needed assistance off the field. He told NFL Network's Stacey Dales that he suffered a hip flexor injury while running the 40-yard dash.

Wiggins said he will be fine for Clemson's pro day, which is scheduled for April 6, a few weeks prior to the 2024 NFL Draft. He also posted a 1.59-second time in the 10-yard split prior to his injury.

Wiggins had a strong campaign during the 2023 campaign for the Tigers. He tallied 29 tackles, six passes defended and two interceptions, which included a pick-six. The cornerback was also responsible for a pair of forced fumbles.

During his three-year career at Clemson, Wiggins racked up 60 total tackles, 21 passes defended and three interceptions. Per NFL Network's Bucky Brooks, he's ranked as the No. 2 player at the cornerback position entering this year's draft.

The Tennessee Titans are in the market for a cornerback, hoping to improve the pass defense. However, it's unlikely the organization would use an early pick to address that concern.
