The title "Fastest Player in the NFL" is not a term thrown around loosely. Deion Sanders built a legacy off the crown. Before him it was Darrell Green. Since then, superstars like Chris Johnson have held the throne.
How exactly does one determine speed in the NFL? Forty times are a start, but they are not the whole story. Players like Steve Smith seem to get faster with pads on, while others 40 times go to waste come game day.
On this list, a player's 40 time is balanced with on-field production both past and present to create the ultimate ranking of the faster players in the NFL.
