Adidas has partnered with some of the best players in the entire NFL which include Aaron Rodgers, Deandre Hopkins, Alvin Kamara, Von Miller, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Patrick Mahomes.
Ruggs was a standout player during the combine as he led all players with the top 40 yard dash time of 4.27. He also posted a vertical jump of 42.0 inches and a broad jump of 131.0 inches.
He is essentially a guaranteed first round pick with ESPN’s Todd McShay predicting that he will be selected by the Denver Broncos who own the No. 15 pick.
