If the reward of getting drafted into the NFL wasn’t enough, Adidas is providing even more incentive for NFL prospects attending this year’s NFL combine by giving away three Porsches to the guys with the fastest 40-yard dash times.

The three fastest players running the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine will each win a Porsche 911 Carrera before they ever sign a pro contract.
It pays to be fast, apparently. Adidas is teaming up with Porsche to give away the three cars — each valued at about $83,000 — who sign with the shoe company ahead of time.
Note to college blazers such as Miami’s Phillip Dorsett and Ohio State’s Devin Smith: You might want to switch to adidas. Stat.
If they do, and they can run a Chris Johnson-esque 40, they’ll take home Porsche’s new Uncaged adizero 5-star cleat and a racecar with a sweet cheetah decal. Living the dream.
This is a genius idea by Adidas. Not only is it a great marketing tool, but it’s also a smart ploy to get top prospects to sign with the shoe company.
Last year they gave away $100,000 to the player with the fastest time who was wearing Adidas cleats.
