You can’t teach speed, as they say, and the Super Bowl LV match-up between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs highlights two of the fastest players in the NFL between wide receivers Scotty Miller and Tyreek Hill.
Hill, who is well known nationally as one of the premiere wide receivers in the league after three All-Pro honors, can score from anywhere in the open field due to high-level of speed. That was on display the last time when the Bucs and Chiefs played each other, when he went for 13 catches, 269 yards and three touchdowns. Hill ran a 4.29 at his pro day coming out of West Alabama.
Miller is just in his second year in the NFL, but is starting to get attention on the big stage following his thrilling 39-yard touchdown catch at the end of the first half in the NFC championship game. He recorded 501 receiving yards and three touchdowns with his top three longest receptions going for 44, 47 and 48 yards this season. Miller ran a 4.3 40-yard dash at his pro day at Bowling Green and has been a down field threat all season with the Bucs, building a great rapport with Tom Brady.
So who’s the fastest out of the two? Miller was on the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday and said he would take himself over any player in the league.
“I’m taking me every day of the week,” Miller said. “I’m taking me over anybody. Tyreek is unbelievable, super quick, unbelievable talent, but if we’re talking about a race I got all the confidence in myself going up against anybody.”
