WR Brandin Cooks wins $100K for running fastest 40 in Adidas cleats

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

Brandin Cooks is going to make some money in the NFL Draft. But he already made some coin via the 2014 NFL combine, when Adidas gave him $100,000 for running the fastest 40 time in the company's cleats.

Cook's 4.33 40 time was actually the second-fastest time of anyone at the combine, losing to only Kent State running back Dri Archer, who ran a 4.26.

But Archer wasn't wearing the Adidas adizero 5-star cleat and Cooks was, so he's $100,000 richer than he was before the combine.

Adidas also handed out $10,000 prizes for positional winners.

Stephen Morris of Miami ran a 4.63 and won $10,000 as the top quarterback. Colt Lyerla of Oregon ran a 4.61 and won a $10,000 prize as the top tight end. Henry Josey of Missouri ran a 4.43 and won $10,000 as the top running back. Cooks was the top wideout, obviously.

Kevin Pierre-Louis of Boston College ran a 4.51 and won $10,000 as the top defensive lineman/linebacker. Phillip Gaines of Rice ran a 4.38 and won $10,000 as the defensive back.
