State college players will participate in National Football League regional combine

Those who wear the cleats will be eligible to win an island.

Over the years, Adidas has given endorsement deals to prospects who have run the fastest time, cash prizes of $100,000 and offered $1 million cash last year if someone could set a new mark. Spokesman Paul Murphy says athletes do not need to supply their own pair of 2017 adizero 5-Star 40 cleats for the competition but can get them from the company. The current record holder is former East Carolina running back Chris Johnson, who tore off a 4.24 40-yard dash in 2008. Combining two tight ends in a complete and move role has become the favorite of offenses-and tight ends in both roles can be found at the 2017 NFL Combine.

Of course, adidas will presumably not have to dish out any of that cash if no one breaks the almost decade-old record. They are now on sale for $150.

As the Combine draws near, many current National Football League players are reminiscent about their own experience.

The island must have a maximum value of $1 million, according to adidas.
