NFL players are some of the most finely tuned athletes in the world. Their physicality is without question, their speed is typically one of their greatest assets. So of course there will always be trash talking as to who is the fastest.
When NFL players started beefing on Twitter about who was the fastest, Bleacher Report decided to find out by putting together a virtual 40-yard dash. The competition featured Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman, Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson and Buccaneers linebacker Devin White. Yes a linebacker running against three w.ide receivers, let’s see how it played out?
Watch the video here!
White is arguably the fastest linebacker in the league, but faster than an NFL wide receiver? In ths case, yes, we atleast faster than one of them.
Mecole Hardman (4.22)
Henry Ruggs III (4.26)
Devin White (4.37)
Justin Jefferson (4.50)
Yes, Buccaneers linebacker and Super Bowl champion Devin White finished 3rd in a race he bad no business being in. Just a testament to the White’s athleticism, especially when you factor in White is nearly 40 lbs heavier than his competition in this case.
