Power Ranking the Top 25 Fastest College Football Players for 2014
USA TODAY Sports

Speed is the ultimate weapon in today's college football.

Have it, and you can compete with anyone, no matter the difference in size, skill or talent. Don't have it, and you'll get left in the dust.

College coaches are going heavy on speed when recruiting high school and junior college players, looking for fast guys they can turn into strong and skillful athletes. Speed can be developed, but not as easily as the other attributes, thus putting a premium on finding players who already possess a high-octane motor. 

We've culled through rosters, recruiting reports and other data to find the fastest guys—both newcomers and veterans—and used their recorded times in the 40-yard dash as well as other races—take note, many of college football's top speedsters are also track stars—along with how they've maximized that speed to rank the 25 swiftest in the FBS heading into the 2014 season.
