These guys are all ridiculous at putting it down in the 40. And some are the fastest of the fast on the planet ( let alone the nfl ) but straight speed and field speed are two different demons ( I'd personally rather have McCoy in open field rather than

Peterson ...



Is there a true difference ? A lot of players play faster than their 40 time as well. Looking at cooks screen has me thinking , is this guy Primetime fast ?

Great question and topic, one that rarely gets the attention it deserves. Thanks for starting it!

Football player speed, and race car speed have a lot of similarities. Their value is all dependent on how it is applied.

To over simplify, when I look at your names listed I see a few NASCARs, couple of Dragsters, some drifters, and a genuine IndyCar. All 'fast' in their own discipline, few win in every application.

Football speed is an unbalanced combination of launch, top end, and cornering.

Only time will tell if Cooks becomes Prime Time, he needs to show he has the vision to match his speed. We have had a couple of speedsters over the last few years that couldn't either stay healthy or apply their gift.


He definitely has the potential.

Re: Where about does Brandin Cooks rank among the Leagues fastest ?

too me it is not so much straight away speed for a player that is under 6'

It is shuttle and 3 cone. to survive he needs to be explosive and have excellent balance to avoid that first hit. then look for the seem and run. It is that first hit that is most dangerous to these might mouses

3.84 shuttle and 6.76 cone

those are numbers that will break some defenders ankles.
