He is not normal. 

Update:  His Nittany Lion teammates did not fare nearly as well.  Unofficially, Jordan Norwood ran 4.57.  Norwood never had the reputation as a burner at Penn State, so perhaps that was to be expected.  However, Derrick Williams was timed at a disappointing 4.58 on his first run, and followed that with a utterly disasterous 4.67.

Update #2:  The sauce, it is weakOfficially, Butler runs a 4.38, good enough for 4th among the wide receivers.  Knox got bumped down to third, Ole Miss' Mike Wallace is second at 4.33, and Darrius Heyward-Bey wins the day at 4.3 flat.

Update #3:  According to NFL.com's Adam Schefter, Derrick Williams was sick all week and advised by his agent Chafie Fields not to attend the combine.  (That item, flagged by BSD commentor PizzaDelivery)
