Will NFL Combine fan experience distract prospects?
Monday February 27th, 2017

If you want your own private island, all you have to do is get invited to the NFL combine and run the fastest 40-yard dash in history. 

Adidas announced Monday that it will buy a private island for any draft prospect who breaks the record in the 40 while wearing their cleats

There is a catch, of course: the value of the island will be capped at $1,000,000, which can still get you a pretty impressive property. Even if they don’t break the record, coming in first in their position will still earn the prospect a $10,000 bonus.

Running back Chris Johnson set the record with a 4.24 in 2008 and Dri Archer came tantalizingly close (4.26) to breaking it in 2014. Legend has it that Bo Jackson ran a 4.12 in 1986, but that was when timing was done completely by hand. 

Perhaps the guy with the best shot at winning the prize is Texas A&M receiver Speedy Noil.
