Before the NFL Combine kicked off last week, adidas offered $100,000 to the athlete who ran the quickest 40-Yard Dash while wearing a pair of the brand's adizero 5-Star 40 football cleats. Brandin Cooks, a wide receiver out of Oregon State, took the challenge to heart and put up a blazing 4.33 time, the fastest of any wide receiver and anyone wearing the adidas cleat.

"My mentality is that I'm the best wide receiver in this draft. Check the stats," Cooks told STACK prior to the Combine. "Now it's all about going to prove it."

Prove it he did. Cooks will take home the $100,000 prize while his draft stock continues to soar after his stellar performance in Indianapolis.
