Prince Amukamara says his doubters “don’t know what they’re talking about”

Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara is facing questions about his speed heading into his NFL Scouting Combine workouts on Tuesday. But he says those questions are ridiculous.

“The 40-yard dash is rated real high at the Combine and I’m looking forward to doing real good at it. I know I’m going to run real well,” Amukamara said. “I think some people don’t know what they’re talking about and haven’t seen me on film. I guess I’ll show them on Tuesday.”

If Amukamara does run real well, he’ll solidify his status as one of the elite players at any position in the draft. And he says he wants teams to realize he’ll be ready to make an impact as a rookie, the way his former teammate Ndamukong Suh did in 2010.

“That is my plan,” Amukamara said. “I’m definitely not trying to redshirt in the NFL.”
