Wake Forest WR Michael Campanaro runs a 4.46

The Baltimore Sun

Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro delivered on his Senior Bowl prediction about his speed.

The River Hill graduate ran an 4.46 in the 40-yard dash, a time that should provide a boost to his draft prospects.

Campanaro told The Baltimore Sun at the Senior Bowl all-star game in January that he would definitely run a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash.

He also bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times, which is proof of good strength and endurance for a somewhat undersized player. Campanaro had a 39-inch vertical leap.

A Clarksville native, Campanaro caught 229 passes at Wake Forest for the highest total in school history.

Campanaro was told by one NFC West team that they plan to draft him if he's available in the third round.

Campanaro is a classic slot wide receiver who emulates players like Wes Welker, Antonio Brown, Randall Cobb and Danny Amendola.

He lacks ideal size at 5 foot 9, 191 pounds, but was extremely productive in college with 2,506 career yards and 14 touchdowns.

As a junior, he had 79 catches for 763 yards and 14 touchdowns. As a senior, he caught 67 passes before breaking his collarbone.
