The following are the quickest wind-legal 100m times from males who competed in an NFL regular season game (data courtesy of World Athletics, Tilastopaja.org, and Pro Football Reference): 1. Jim Hines ($9.95) The 1968 Olympic gold champion in the 100m was the first man to break 10 seconds with electronic timing, and he is still the only NFL player to accomplish so. His time of 9.95 seconds in a preseason game against the New York Jets has been ranked as the fastest human performance ever.
Hines' teammate Leroy Coleman also played in one NFL game and ran a 10-yard dash in 11.4 seconds. He went on to become one of the best runners of all time - he won three NCAA titles and set 13 world records before he died at age 42 due to complications from kidney disease.
The second-fastest NFL player is Ola Jonsson ($10.5), who earned a silver medal in the same event at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Jonsson's time of 10.1 seconds has been ranked as the second-fastest human performance ever behind Hines'. Two other players, both from the 1970s, rank third and fourth: Dwight Stephenson ($10.5) in 1978 and Eric Leckner ($10.6) in 1991. There are no women who have run faster than 11 seconds in an NFL game; the closest was 11.0 by LaVonda Clark in 1989.'
Who is the NFL player with the quickest 100m time?
The NFL's Quickest 40-Yard Dash Times He had a top speed of 21.62 miles per hour.
Tom Brady ran a 4.71 40-yard dash at his 2006 pro day. His fastest time was recorded by Chris Simms, who also attended Boston College and played quarterback for the BC Lions from 2004 to 2008. Simms currently plays quarterback for the New York Jets.
Brady's top speed of 21.62 miles per hour (35 kph) would have placed him third among all players at his position that year. Only San Diego Chargers' quarterback Dan Marino (22.08 mph or 36 kph) and Chicago Bears' quarterback Jim Everett (21.92 mph or 35 kph) were faster. Brady also broke the school record he held since joining the NFL with a time of 4.59 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle drill. The previous record was 4.89 set by Eric LeGrand in 2013.
He ended up taking some other athletic drills at his pro day too. He jumped 38 inches vertically and reached a broad jump distance of 9 feet, 11 inches. Those numbers put him first and second on the team, respectively. On the bench press, Brady pressed 225 pounds 33 times.
All NFL players do 40-yard sprints for scouts while being scouted. These players are not timed in the 100-yard dash. The fastest time I've heard of in the 40 yard dash is roughly 4.2 seconds. This corresponds to a 100-yard sprint time of roughly 9.5 or 9.6 seconds. Most players can cover this distance in less than 10 seconds.
The most popular sport in America, and worldwide, football is a game that requires speed, strength, and endurance. In order for a player to be successful in football games today, they need to have these attributes along with some skill. Speed is vital to avoid being tackled out of playheads, strength is needed to break free from tackles, and endurance is required to stand on the field for 60 minutes plus at a high level. The best athletes in the world play football because it's a game where anything can happen, and winning is all about being able to react quickly to situations.
Football players are measured for size before signing contracts with professional teams. When scouting players, coaches look for players who measure between 5'10" and 6'4" and weigh between 180 and 215 pounds. Smaller players are considered better because they're easier to control and stop. Larger players can beat out smaller players for starting positions because they have more ability to withstand hits and still get open downfield.
The fastest men have covered the 100-yard distance in 9 seconds or less.
An 11-year-old boy from Ireland ran the quickest 100m time ever. He ran the 100m dash in an astonishing 9.41 seconds. It's difficult to believe, but it's true. James Mulvihill was his name. He has been clocked by a radar gun at the Irish National Sports Campus in Limerick.
The young athlete had never participated in any kind of sports before 2015. That is when he decided to start running. His father Gerry, who is also his coach, told the media that their family used to go to the beach every day when James was a child. They would play football and run around the water until they were hot. One day, while playing with his friends, James fell down and hurt himself. This injury forced him to stop playing outside and stay inside all the time. This absence from sports led to his talent being forgotten about until he started running again four years later.
James holds records for Ireland's youngest male athlete, as well as the world's fastest 11-year-old male sprinter. He will be very happy to know that he has been chosen by Ireland as its representative at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London, England. The tournament will take place from 22 August to 2 September. An team of athletes will compete in different events based on their abilities. For example, some people are faster than others at certain activities such as sprinting or jumping.
Darrell Green was one of the greatest athletes to ever play in the NFL. Many of the NFL's fastest running backs and receivers were run down by Green from great distances. Green has stated in interviews that the quickest time he is aware of is 4.15. (or 40 yards in 4.15 seconds) This would make him the fastest human being who has ever lived.
In a football game, 4.15 seconds is like running a 100-meter dash in under 10 seconds. It's considered fast on a global scale because it's faster than most people can run. But it's especially remarkable because Green was an elite track and field athlete in high school and college, winning national championships at UCLA. His time in the 40-yard dash only fell short of Eric Dickerson's unofficially recorded time of 4.13 during his senior year at UCLA. Dickerson went on to have a very successful NFL career with the Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams where he set many records including having over 1,000 rushing yards in a season twice. He also received the title of "Fastest Man in Football" from The Sporting News when they named him as such in 1990.
After Dickerson, other notable players who have claimed to be the fastest include Marshall Faulk (4.03), Edgerrin James (4.12), Emmitt Smith (4.21), and Walter Payton (4.33).
