Speedy Adoree' Jackson is one of the most intriguing players at NFL combine

Speed thrills.

There’s an undeniable buzz among the evaluators at the NFL scouting combine when a player turns in a turf-melting performance in the 40-yard dash, covering the distance in 4.3 seconds or less.

“It kind of wakes up the crowd, so to speak,” Rams General Manager Les Snead said. “If somebody runs a sub-4.4, you’ll see the scouts kind of look at their stopwatches, then turn to their neighbor, flash them the number, and say, ‘Hey, look at this.’”

That’s precisely the reaction USC cornerback Adoree’ Jackson is likely to evoke this week if all goes well for him at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Blistering speed is his calling card, and could propel him into the first round of the draft in April, even though he doesn’t have imposing size at 5 feet 11, 185 pounds.
