Combine'11: Amukamara displays speed

3/1/2011

Early reports from Tuesday's workouts at the scouting combine suggest that Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara isn't going to fall to the Detroit Lions at No. 13 overall, as many of you have been hoping.

Amukamara ran his first 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds and his second in 4.44 seconds. I would imagine those numbers are fast enough to assuage any doubts about that aspect of his game, validating the work Amukamara has done with a speed coach as we discussed last week.

If speed was the final obstacle to locking in Amukamara as a top-10 pick, I'm guessing it's no longer a question.
