Top 10 Fastest NFL Players of All Time

Who is the fastest player of all time in the NFL?

You might pick Deion Sanders who amassed over 7,000 yards on interception returns, punt returns and kick off returns and was clocked at a 4.21 40 yard dash at the 1989 NFL Combine. Sanders is the only man to play in both a Super Bowl and a World Series, to hit an MLB home run and score an NFL touchdown in the same week, and to have both a reception and an interception in the Super Bowl. He is one of only two players to score an NFL touchdown six different ways (interception return, punt return, kickoff return, receiving, rushing, and fumble recovery).

Or perhaps it’s Bob Hayes, Olympic 100 meter gold medal winner at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics? Hayes had 371 receptions gaining 7,400 yards in his career, mainly with the Dallas Cowboys. He has been credited with changing the game of football, forcing teams to develop a zone defense in order to cover him.
