Phillip Dorsett Should Win A Porsche After Combine

If you want to talk about the best ways to start off your NFL career, winning a free Porsche for being ridiculously fast ranks right near the top. According to ESPN, Adidas will be putting three Porsche 911 Carreras up for grabs at the NFL Scouting Combine for the three fastest participants in the 40-yard dash who sign with the company.

Three players will win Porsche 911 Carrera cars.

The offer comes from Adidas, which is promising the cars, worth about $83,000 each, to the three fastest players in the combine's 40-yard dash who sign with the company before they step up to the line. The cars are wrapped in a cheetah print that matches the company's new Uncaged adizero 5-star cleat. The ultralight shoe hits shelves Thursday.

Phillip Dorsett from the Miami Hurricanes may be the man to beat, though. According to Susan Miller Degnan of The Miami Herald, Dorsett actually set a University of Miami all-time record for the 40-yard dash at 4.21 seconds.

This month, Dorsett set a University of Miami all-time best of 4.21 seconds in the 40-yard dash, bettering former Hurricane Sam Shields’ 4.26 record.

Both those times, said UM Canes strength and conditioning coach Andreu Swasey, were averages of a few stopwatches timing the players for each 40.

One stopwatch, Swasey said, had Dorsett running a 4.18.
