Not many defensive tackles are better than Aaron Donald at anything.
But Donald was surpassed in the NFL Scouting Combine record books Thursday by a player from his alma mater.
Pittsburgh defensive tackle Calijah Kancey ran a 40-yard dash in 4.67 seconds, breaking Donald’s record for defensive tackles by one-hundredth of a second.

If breaking Donald’s record is any sign of things to come, Kancey will have a great NFL career. Donald is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year and has made the Pro Bowl in each of his nine seasons. Donald was also a first-team All-Pro every year from 2015 to 2021.
Kancey also physically resembles the Los Angeles Rams star. Donald was 6 feet ¾ inches tall and weighed 285 pounds in 2014, while Kancey was a quarter-inch taller and four pounds lighter. Remember, Donald was considered undersized and went on to become one of the greatest defensive players of all time.

Kancey was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year and was a unanimous All-American last season. He was a first-team All-ACC member in each of the past two seasons and a finalist for the Nagurski and Outland Trophies after leading the Panthers with 14.5 tackles for loss with 7.5 sacks.
