Robert Griffin III Runs Impressive 40 in adidas adiZero 5-Star Cleats

 Robert Griffin III Runs Impressive 40 at NFL Combine in adidas adiZero 5-Star Cleats (2)

words // Brandon Richard

Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III just signed a deal with adidas last week and the decision to wear the game’s lightest cleats is already paying off. After lacing up the “Combine Gold” colorway of the adidas adiZero 5-Star, RG3 dropped jaws at the 2012 NFL Combine by running an official 4.41 40-yard dash (4.38 unofficial), the third fastest 40 time posted by a quarterback since 2000.

Many NFL experts and analysts are suggesting that pound-for-pound, Griffin’s 40 time is the best we’ve ever seen from a quarterback. RG3 measured at 6’2 and 223 lbs., while Michael Vick (6’0, 210 lbs.) and Reggie McNeal (6’2, 198 lbs.) carried much smaller frames that aided their speed.

Griffin’s incredible performance didn’t end with the 40, however. He also showed off his hops, posting a 39″ vertical and 10′ broad jump.

If you’re looking to add a little more speed to your game, you can pick up the golden adidas football cleats today at Eastbay.
