With there being no official NFL Combine this year because of the pandemic, pro prospects have had to put extra emphasis on showcasing their skills during their respective school’s Pro Day. Georgia cornerback Eric Stokes decided to train in South Florida this year, running in Brandon Marshall’s House of Athlete 40-yard dash. Stokes ran an unofficial 4.25-second 40, which would be the third-fastest in combine history.
Fans on Twitter reacted promptly to Stokes’ impressive initial run, putting all eyes on him at Georgia’s March 17 Pro Day. Stokes continued to impress, running the 40-yard dash twice, again clocking as fast as a 4.
