in fact (just a guess) he might be the SLOWEST #1 WR in the entire NFL...I can't think of any that are slower...
the 40 is overrated in determining "TALENT"....not "SPEED"
if you run a 4.2 then YOU ARE F*CKIN FAST...
Dude I honestly wonder how much knowledge you retain when you watch/discuss/read football.
Do you even know what a possession receiver is? Keyshawn Johnson was a possession WR. Larry Fitzgerald has a much more versatile skill set.
" A possession receiver is generally the more sure-handed of the two types and is used to keep possession of the ball by making catches that gain first down yardage, but he usually lacks the speed to attack a defensive backfield."
^^ That sure sounds a lot like Larry Fitzgerald.
Larry is faster or as fast than plenty of #1 WRs:
