Default Who is currently the fastest player in the NFL?

I got either Marquise Goodwin or Tyreek Hill. Edge to Hill. Unless you got otherwise
Who's the fastest?

hard to say...maybe Dri Archer

I'm sure it's some lesser talent with a track background...

that was wind assisted IIRC. i think his PB came in high school when he ran 10.19.

His 200 is better tho, 20.14 - nearly broke the high school record.

Hill just clocked 22.77 MPH on that KOR vs Denver. Fastest reordered time in the NFL and he wasn't even in pusuit before top speed. Hill may be the fastest ever. Over Vick, CJ2K, and Bo Jackson.

IDK man. Hill has reportedly ran a sub 10 second 100m. He has recorded a 4.25 40yd. Now getting clocked at 22.77 MPH and not hitting top speed after realizing there was nobody pursuing? Hill might have every one beat.

its crazy how fast bo and deion were compared to our modern athletes, especially when you consider how much sports science and training have improved in the past 20 years since their heydays.

there were a lot of really special athletes in the 90s, and not just in football.

It was also the golden age of anabolic steroids. All the tech was available, yet none of the detection was widespread.

Bo Jackson's best days were in the mid-to-late 80s.

Bo ran with so much speed and power, he actually yanked his freaking hip out of socket when a defender latched onto his foot. That is alien strength.

I don't know how the measurables rank them, but Travis Benjamin always seemed to me to be playing at a different speed than everyone else on the field... and I actually watched him in-person against other more highly touted speedsters.

He might not be THE fastest, but he has to be up there.



^^^I was at that Thursday night game a few years ago. On the sidelines, actually. Met Jim Brown and everything (he was being honored for the 1,000th time in Browns Stadium).

It was like watching a gazelle effortless glide away.
