PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Every step of the way this year Aaron Donald has shown how impressive he truly is, and nothing has changed in that regard as the former Pitt defensive tackle has taken his talents to the NFL Combine.

As Rob Rang of CBSSports.com writes, not even a sub-4.5 40-yard dash time from controversial South Carolina defensive end JaDeveon Clowney could upstage Donald’s performance.

Donald ran an unofficial 4.65 in the 40-yard dash and had the second most reps on the bench press putting up 225 pounds 35 times.

Add all of this to his accomplishments during the season, including the Outland Trophy, Chuck Bednarik Award, Bronko Nagurski Award as well as his award from the Senior Bowl as the Most Outstanding Overall Player, and Donald appears to be shooting up most scout’s draft boards.

Even ESPN’s NFL Draft Analyst Todd McShay praised Donald for his workouts at the Combine.
