Prince Amukamara confirms he’ll do all drills at combine

Justin Blackmon, Prince Amukamara

Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara won’t let questions regarding his top-end speed discourage him from running the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine this week.

Amukamara, seen as a potential top-ten pick, says he will perform all drills.

“If there was something you were unsure about, yeah, maybe I’d not do it,” Amukamara told the Omaha World Herald. “But I don’t feel that way.”

While the 40 is overrated in general, it does hold particular importance to cornerbacks — especially this year’s crop.  This is a class filled at the top with cornerbacks that are known for their physical play more than their speed.

    he has to participate. his stock is dropping and Jimmy Smith, Aaron Williams and Ras-L Dowling are a few guys that can be first rounders in this draft. Amukamara’s biggest concern is his top end speed as he can clearly be physical. he got tore up by OSU’s Blackmon due to him getting burned in intermediate and deep routes.

    my personal opinion is that Jimmy Smith will be the best cover corner in this darft with Patrick Peterson being a more boom or bust DB that will be great in the return game.

    Isn’t he formerly known as somebody else?

    I would like to see this Prince play opposite of Joe Haden in Cleveland.
