Amukamara answers questions about speed

UPDATE: Amukamara officially clocked in at 4.43 seconds, fifth-best among cornerbacks at the combine.

INDIANAPOLIS — The first group of defensive backs finished their 40-yard dashes at the NFL Scouting Combine, with three prospects posting unofficial sub-4.4-second times.

The prospect whose time might have been most critical was Nebraska’s Prince Amukamara, who has faced questions over his straight-line speed. He answered them Tuesday, running times of 4.37 and 4.44. Let’s defer to NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock, who has Amukamara listed as his No. 2 overall cornerback.

“I like what I saw from Amukamara,” Mayock said. “He did what he had to do.”

The 6-foot, 206-pound Amukamara has ideal size and a tremendous build, but it would seem he took another step in solidifying his status with his performance in the 40.
