Break the NFL Combine 40 record, win your own island
The NFL Scouting Combine gets started Tuesday when players begin to arrive in Indianapolis. Workouts won’t start until Friday, which is when the top prospects will run the always-intriguing 40-yard dash.
Chris Johnson’s record time of 4.24 seconds from 2008 still stands, but Adidas is trying to give the 300-plus players running the 40 added motivation to beat it. How? By giving anyone who breaks the record their own island. There’s just one caveat: It has to be done in the 2017 adizero 5-star 40 cleats.

This isn’t the first time Adidas has offered up a huge prize for any prospect who can break Johnson’s record. Last year, $1 million was on the line for a record-breaking run, while in 2015, $100,000 was awarded to the top three times in the 40.
An island is nice, but $1 million is probably more valuable – especially for a speedy player who may not find himself drafted in the first round.
