Adopt-a-Bronco:
Chris Harris
Default NFL Speed

Just wanted to throw this out there. Hey, you gotta give up to Beebe, a white guy in the top 25 NFL fastest of all time. Go figure. Props to Champ, we all know he was a real burner in his prime.

Mind you, as it says below, NFL 40 times are usually faster then track sprinter time because they say there is a .25 (on average) delay based on gun sound reaction versus NFL times which start once the player has started his forward motion.


The NFL's fastest official 40 yard dash time was 4.25 seconds by cornerback Fabian Washington. Previous to electronic timing, Deion Sanders held the official record at 4.29 seconds. Here are some unofficial claims to players who have broken the 4.2 second mark.

1. Ted Ginn Jr. (4.06)
2. Alexander Wright (4.09)
3. Michael Bennett (4.13)
4. Bo Jackson (4.14)
5. DeAngelo Hall (4.15)
6. Darrell Green (4.15)
7. Lavernaues Coles (4.16)
8. Deion Sanders (4.17)
9. Joey Galloway (4.18)
10. Ahman Green (4.19)
11. Laveranues Coles (4.2)
12. Don Beebe (4.21)
13. Donte Stallworth (4.22)
14. Ryan Dotson (4.24)
15. Michael Vick (4.25)
16. Randy Moss (4.25)
17. Willie Parker (4.23)
18. Chris Johnson (4.24)
19. Devin Hester (4.24)
20. Champ Bailey (4.28)
21. Willis McGahee (4.28)
22. Stanford Routt (4.29)
23. Fabian Washington(4.29)
24. Reggie Bush (4.33)
25. Darren McFadden (4.33)

Yeah Deon was a special player. But you're chances of finding someone like him even with 4-5 first round picks is almost nil. All you can do is hope for good nfl players, the special ones you sort of have to get lucky on.
