The Contenders

11Bob Lilly
12Forrest Gregg
13Jim Taylor
14"Bullet" Bob Hayes

Fastest human being to ever walk the planet, though a bit inconsistent. At his best, he is the only sprinter who could have beaten Usain Bolt at his best. His anchor leg in the 4X100 relay final at the 1964 Olympics is the single fastest speed anybody has ever gone. He was thrilling in every game he played in, but his post-football life was not good. May he RIP.
