NFL prospects are headed to In­di­anapo­lis to­day for the an­nual scout­ing com­bine in hopes of im­prov­ing their chances of be­ing se­lected in April’s NFL Draft. Now Adi­das is adding some ex­tra in­cen­tive.

The shoe and ap­parel com­pany an­nounced Mon­day that it will buy a pri­vate is­land for any draft prospect who breaks the com­bine record in the 40-yard dash while wear­ing Adi­das cleats. The record is 4.24 sec­onds, set by for­mer Ten­nessee Ti­tans run­ning back Chris John­son in 2008.

The one catch is the value of the prop­erty will be capped at $1 mil­lion. If the record is not bro­ken, the prospect with the fastest time will re­ceive a $10,000 bonus.
