Report: Who is the ultimate NFL speed demon!

Speed Kills!

Published on by The Football Feed in NFL News

Matt Bowen of ESPN has ranked the fastest players in the NFL using 40 yard dash times and track and field times. 11 wide receivers and 1 cornerback top the 12 player list.

Fresh of a coming out party as a rookie in 2016, Tyreek Hill tops the list. His 40 time was 4.24! That’s blazing speed.

The only non- receiver on the list is Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson. Peterson is a premiere shutdown cornerback in the NFL and his top end speed is one reason why.

Most players on the list are young guys but a couple wily veterans show up: Ted Ginn Jr. and Desean Jackson. Those two have been gamebreakers every since they came into the league in 2007 and 2008 respectively.
