Top safety prospect Jamal Adams impressed scouts by running the 40-yard dash at LSU’s pro day much faster than he did at the NFL combine in March.
Adams ran the drill in 4.56 seconds in Indianapolis, and appears to have bettered that time by as much as two-tenths of a second Wednesday in Baton Rouge.
Precisely how much faster Adams ran is not clear – pro days don’t have the same electronic timing as the combine and the hand times different scouts register can vary by a significant margin.
But the consensus is that Adams ran much faster than 4.56 seconds, which should only help cement his status as a likely top-10 draft pick.
