I am impressed at the huge number of white players on the fastest 100 m list.

It's hilarious how they have to go back over half a century to make the list seem credible.

Jim Hines (1968 NFL Draft) never played a single game in the NFL or even made the main squad.

Bob Hayes (1964 NFL Draft)

Ron Brown (1983 NFL Draft)

Etc.

Most NFL players just don't have recorded 100's. notice randy moss's was when he was 14 but you probably don't care because you came to this thread to shit on it. Phone Post 3.0

Bob Hayes with his 9.91 in the 100 is definitely the alpha on that list...guy ran a hand timed split between 8.5 and 8.9 in the 4x100....on a chipped and degraded cinder track. Hayes today would be unbeatable on a synthetic track....I don't even think Usain Bolt would be able to run those times on a dirt track....

Hayes was also just 21 when he set all those records and just 22 when he left track for football. He still had a few more years to go to reach his full potential.

YasielPuigedMyPiehole -  Hayes was running 100 yards not meters Phone Post

Hayes' 9.91 was in the 100 meter but it was wind assisted. His best official mark in the 100 meter was 10.6, which was still a world record. And as noted it was on a badly chewed up cinder track and he was using borrowed shoes.

Sorry. That should have been 10.6.

His best in the 100 yards was 9.1 seconds, then the world record.

Was looking for Tim Dwight. He seemed so little, and with the way he ran, and cut he just seemed so much faster than everyone else on the kick returns. Phone Post

It's a shame that most D1 football players only play one sport now.

There used to be a time when college football players were two- or even three-sport athletes, with the skill players running track and the linemen doing the throws.

Imagine some of the numbers today's football players might put up if more of them still did that.

A lot of rookie or second year qbs were drafted baseball players. I know Russell Wilson, kap, locker, and Brandon Weeden all played. Jimmy graham and gates both played basketball Phone Post 3.0
