The annual NFL Scouting Combine is taking place this week where hopeful NFL draft picks are showing potential coaches, general managers and owners what they’re made out of. Perhaps the most exciting competition of all is the 40-yard dash. This year adidas is offering $1,000,000 to anyone that can break the record which was set 8 years ago by Chris Johnson with a time of 4.24 seconds.
Sports television analyst Rich Eisen has made it a tradition for 11 years now, going on 12, to close out the NFL Scouting Combine by running the 40-yard dash in a full business suit. This year he’ll be running in some special adidas cleats that were given to him by Snoop Dogg earlier this week. In the video above you can see Snoop gift Eisen with the 2016 adizero 5-Star 40 cleats that is lightweight and aerodynamic while also coming with photo-realistic, high-definition, 3-D fire graphics. The cleat was created specifically for the 40-yard dash and weighs only 4.9 ounces, making it the lightest cleat in the game.
Last year Eisen ran a 6.10. Do you think the 2016 adizero 5-Star 40 cleats will help him improve his time this year?
