WR Brandin Cooks wins $100K for running fastest 40 in Adidas cleats
OSU wideout Brandin Cooks won $100,000 for running the fastest 40 time of anyone in Adidas cleats at the combine.
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.
