Today was the day for defensive backs at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis and Purdue's Josh Johnson has had a very good day. So far he as completed the 40, the Bench Press, the vertical leap, and the broad jump and has done extremely well in all four.
In the 40 he tested at 4.65 seconds, but had an unofficial earlier time of 4.53 according to Twitter:

After that came the bench press, where he had a solid 16 reps, just missing the "top performer" label at 17. His vertical leap of 35 inches was about 5.5 inches short of the top numbers put up. he put up a 114 inch broad jump, which was actually quite short compared to some of the others who went for 134 inches.
Josh still has the three-cone drill, 20-yard shuffle, and 60-yard shuffle to go. His speed will likely pay large dividends here.
