NFL scouts wrapped up the combine drills earlier today. Pro football hopefuls were running drills at full speed at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Commissioner Roger Goodell decided to test his own skills from the fifth floor of the NFL headquarters in New York. Watch as Goodell completes the 40-yard dash in a full suit.

The 59-year-old commissioner was challenged to run the 40 by NFL analyst Rich Eisen. Eisen completes the drill every year at the combine to raise awareness for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. So while Goodell’s time of 5.41 is far from the breakaway speed NFL scouts are looking for, at least it was all for a good cause.
