   In TODAY's NFL, I'd pick Demps...
demps not a current NFL player at this point

He's on the Bucs' roster, 'tho...
Well if that's all it takes then I'll say Justin Gaitlin.. Didn't we have him on the roster some time ago?

The all-time speedster would have to be Prime time.

Dante hall or Hester have to considered the quickest twitch though, IMO.

Rumors had Bob Hayes run a 5.28 60 yard dash.  He also had an ungodly fast split time in a 4x100m relay of 8.6 for his leg.  Too bad technology wasn't there to get an accurate time.

For his size, Bo was most impressive!!

Deion, Green, Moss have to be mentioned up there as well.

He has zero stats.   To even mention him at this point is ridiculous.

And oddly enough, that size is what ended his career.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

10.06 on a chewed up cinder track in Tokyo 1964. At a minimum and with no allowance for training and other advantages today, that was worth a 9.90 on today's tracks. This was nearly 50 years ago. There's no one in the NFL currently or historically who could or could have run 9.90.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

And Usain Bolt ran a 9.58... I know he's strictly a track guy but that's insane.

On that latest 30 for 30 documentary, the one where Bo rips Culverhouse pretty bad.  They explain how the hip got messed up.  It really was a routine tackle. the guy had a hold of one leg.  And Bo was so strong and with all that weight going forward, he tore the hell out of that hip joint.  If he was a smaller guy, it would of been a routine tackle, with the player going down right away.
