Top 10 fastest NFL players after Tyreek Hill since 2016
NEW YORK (BVM) – Watch the fastest recorded speeds by NFL ball carriers from the 2016-2022 seasons. Wide receiver and former Super Bowl champion Tyreek Hill stands at No. 1 and is arguably the fastest NFL player of all time. But some NFL players haven’t trailed too far behind the “Cheetah” since he entered the league in 2016.
No NFL ball carrier has topped Hill’s top speed of 23.24 miles per hour (MPH), according to data compiled for the regular season by NFL’s Next Gen Stats. During his 2016 rookie season with the Kansas City Chiefs, Hill reached 23.24 MPH on a kickoff return of 27 yards, and later reached 22.77 MPH on an 86-yard kick return touchdown.
Supposedly, Hill wouldn’t fall too far behind in a race with the fastest man on the planet, Usain Bolt, who has reached a top speed of 27.33 MPH.
While Hill holds the title of the No. 1 speedster in the NFL, many other players trailed not too far behind. Check out which other 10 athletes ran a close second to Hill since his league debut.
