Luke McCaffrey ran a 4.47 40-yard dash, according to NBC Sports Bay Area. Christian McCaffrey ran a 4.48 40-yard dash before the 2017 draft.

The 40-yard dash alone doesn’t determine draft position, but McCaffrey showed his versatility on the football field in college. He started his collegiate career at Nebraska playing quarterback. He only played in 11 games during his first two seasons and then transferred to Rice.

McCaffrey started out as a quarterback with Rice but switched to wide receiver before the start of the 2022 season. He caught 129 passes for 1,715 yards and 19 touchdowns during his two seasons of being a wideout.

The 6-foot-2 wide receiver could end up being a day-three draft selection, which means any team, including the 49ers, could end up selecting him at some point.

McCaffrey is also the son of former Denver Broncos Super Bowl champion wide receiver Ed McCaffrey and Lisa McCaffrey, who played soccer at Stanford for three years and received a soccer scholarship offer from Vanderbilt. It was the first women’s soccer scholarship offer from the school, but she turned it down, according to People.
