Ted Ginn Jr. , he plays for the Miami Dolphins and ran a 4.06 40 yard dash.
The below is possibly incorrect. The "proof" is a list of UNOFFICIAL fastest times. _____________________________________________________________________ The below is incorrect. Ted Ginn Jr. ran this fastest 40m dash at 4.06 seconds. Website for proof and rankings: http://www.listafterlist.c…om/tabid/57/listid/5923/Sports++Recreation/NFLs+Unofficial+Fastest+40Yard+Dash+Times.aspx the fastest time ever recorded is 3.6 by Barry Sanders, followed by 3.9 by Joey Galloway. Devin Hester has the 3rd fastest time at 4.01 followed by alot of 4.15s Sam Stuart ran a 3.85 . I wonder if you might give us some documentation on the time of Galloway since I have searched the Internet and can find nothing about it. Certainly someone that can run that fast, faster than Asafa Powell or Bob Hayes, would have that information documented somewhere. According to the NFL, the fastest electronically timed 40 yard dash is 4.25 by Fabian Washington. Others have run faster outside the NFL's timing, the fastest being Hester's 4.01 at Miami Pro Day and Ted Ginn Jr. who supposedly ran a 4.06 40 at OSU. Both of those times are questionable at best as no documentation is known as far as track/wind conditions. Where might we find an article that states Galloway ran a 3.9? Actually reggie bush, bo Jackson and Hester have all posted faster times than Washington. Darrell green ran a 4.09 but wasn't documente3d. And joey galloway ran a 3.9 in his individual workout for the seattle seahawks b4 they drafted him.. U can find documentation if u search on wikipedia under 40 yrd dash ( Full Answer )
I'd Say Bob Hayes . You could certainly make an argument for Bob Hayes. Hayes set the world record in the 100 m at the 1964 Olympics, then joined the Dallas Cowboys as a wide receiver. He was pretty much uncoverable man-to-man. It is widely held that his speed forced opponents to create the first… zone defenses.. Bob Hayes was the fastest man on the planet in 1964. But Darell Green of the Washington Redskins would have beaten him in a 40 yard dash. Here is my reasoning:. Darell Green played 20 years after Bob Hayes. "World Class" speed had improved quite a bit at that point. That was the era (the early 80's) of NFL teams signing Olympis sprinters with no real football experience. When Darell would race those players in NFL skills competitions he would usually win.. Also, he caught Tony Dorsett (a 9.9 hundred yard time guy) from behind so easy on a Monday night game that it was actually scary.. Just my opinion ( Full Answer )
riley david larue(fastest man in the world) born on october 18, 1988 ran a 100 yard dash in 5.28 seconds in pauls alley way on october 5th 2009. . This guy must run a 2 second 40
bo jackson hes not on the 40 yard dash list but he ran it in 4.12 seconds and im not even joking.
The 40 yard dash record for NFL players is 4.24seconds and was set by Rondel Melendez in 1999 and equaled, in2008, by Chris Johnson. However, it is important to note that theseare listed as 'official' since they were set after the introductionof the 'electronic timer' at the NFL Combine - but, t…he electronictimer itself is activated/started by an official by hand when hesees the player move. They really need some 'laser to laser'start/finish system before the times can be relied upon. Even then,the player is not wearing full NFL kit and helmet - so the timeshave very little to do with the actual sport. Here are some unofficial CLAIMS for some players. But, as weknow, people are prone to BS: . 1.. Ted Ginn Jr. (4.06). 2.. Alexander Wright (4.09). 3.. Michael Bennett (4.13). 4.. Bo Jackson (4.14). 5.. DeAngelo Hall (4.15). 6.. Darrell Green (4.15). 7.. Lavernaues Coles (4.16). 8.. Deion Sanders (4.17). 9.. Joey Galloway (4.18). 10.. Ahman Green (4.19). 11.. Laveranues Coles (4.2). 12.. Don Beebe (4.21). 13.. Donte Stallworth (4.22). 14.. Ryan Dotson (4.24). 15.. Michael 'Prick' Vick (4.25). 16.. Randy Moss (4.25). 17.. Willie Parker (4.23). 18.. Chris Johnson (4.24). 19.. Devin Hester (4.24). 20.. Champ Bailey (4.28). 21.. Willis McGahee (4.28). 22.. Stanford Routt (4.29). 23.. Fabian Washington(4.29). 24.. Reggie Bush (4.33). 25.. Darren McFadden (4.33). ( Full Answer )
Al Nelson, a cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles between 1965-1973, was the first player to return a missed field goal 100+ yards when he returned one 100 yards against the Cleveland Browns on December 11, 1966.
I think it can very well be Deion Sanders, he ran his 40 with hard bottoms and jeans on and a Florida State sweatshirt. Deion Sanders is extremely fast. However, Jerome Bettis was very fast as well. He ran for 1 mile in only 4 minutes and 54 seconds in high school.
The fastest official electric time was Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans who ran a 4.24.
Answer Deangelo Hall 4.18 Prefgasfrior to the NFL Scouting Combine , Johnson was projected a second to third round draft pick.  However, at the combine he registered a 4.24-second time, which essentially assured him a spot in the first round and tied the all-time mark set by Rondel Melende…z , a wide receiver from Eastern Kentucky , in 1999-the first year the combine used electronic timers.  This time was the fastest ever recorded for a running back. [ ( Full Answer )
Darrell Green. With all padding on in a game against the rams, he ran 40 yards in around 3.9 seconds. or ted ginn jr even though he ran a 4.20 he had a broken ankle
This fastest player is NOT Darrell Green.. DG ran the 40 in 4.43 seconds. Bo Jackson has the fastest 40 time ever recorded at a 4.13, making him the fastest player ever in the NFL.
OFFICIAL TIMES(don't listen to the ones that were run by stop watches) 1. chris Johnson and devin Hester-4.24 2. Joe Menendez and Fabian Washington-4.25 3. Jacoby Ford-4.26 4. Champ Bailey-4.27 5. Deion Sanders and Jerome mathis- 4.28 6. Donte Stallworth- 4.29 7. Yamon Figurs(along with various o…thers)-4.30 8.

Bob Hayes has the world record in the 100 yard dash. This recordwas set in the year 1963. This is a separate race from the 100meter dash.
Joey Galloway ran a 3.9 prior to being drafted by the Seattle Seahawks. Darrell Green ran a sub 4.1.
I would have to say Chris Johnson of the Tenessee Titans, because he once ran a long touchdown run at the speed of 27.3 miles per hour. That is faster than Usain Bolt (world's fastest man), and Johnson was running with 20 pounds of padding on him.
Darrell Green ran an unofficial 4.09 40 yard dash in training camp in 1986 for the Washington Redskins. He is considered by many as one of the best corners of all time. Many see him as the fastest man in NFL history, having won several NFL's Fastest Man competitions. Bo Jackson is second ran a 4.…12 Deion Sanders is third ran 4.17 and 4.57 backwards at Florida State University Pro Day ( Full Answer )
Rondel Melendez (in 1999) and Chris Johnson (in 2008) both share first place at 4.24 in the list of top official 40 yard dash results recorded at the NFL Scouting combine since 1999, the first year electronic timing was implemented at the NFL Scouting Combine. Prior to 1999 40 yard dash times were… somewhat unreliable and often prone to exaggeration. However, in 1986, Auburn's Bo Jackson is said to have run the fastest 40 yard dash at an NFL combine, with a reported time of 4.12 . This time was obviously scrutinized, but a time of 4.18 run by Jackson within the same week certainly added some support to the legitimacy of the times. However, other claims are that: . Michael Johnson (3.98) . Chris Johnson (4.03) . Ted Ginn Jr. (4.06) . Dieon Sanders (4.19) . NFL DeAngelo Hall (4.21) . Michael Vick (4.22) ( Full Answer )
The official world best is 9.07 seconds by Asafa Powell. It was runin 2010 during a 100 meter race (the time it took him to cover thefirst 100 yards or 91 meters or the 100 meter race)
Generally, swimming records are measured in meters. The currentworld record for a 50 meter butterfly swim is 22.43 seconds, set in2009 by Rafael Munoz of Spain.
\n. \nMichael Vick and Deon Sanders both ran it at 4.18 seconds.\n. \n. \n. \nNeither is true. Deion was 4.27 & Vick was 4.41. Chris Johnson ran a 4.24.
Theo walcott ran the 100m in 11.32 when he was 14 and the World Junior Champion at the same age ran in 11.30 !
The fifiy yard dash has never been an event in the Olympic Games. The shortest running event in the Games is the 100 meter dash and the Olympic record, as of the 2008 Games, is 9.84 set by Donovan Bailey of Canada set in 1996.
10/20/2009: Recently read that it was Tom Brady getting there much faster than Montano or Favre, but, Otto Graham has a career record of 106-18 including 7-3 in championship games.
usain bolt broke the record. his record was 9.63 the fastest man in the world and his coming faster.
Bob Hayes 10.05 Actually Jim Hines played 10 games for the Dolphins and 1 for the Chiefs. Hines ran 9.95 for the gold medal and world record in the 1968 Olympics. His football catching skills earned him the nickname "Oops"
It has to be Chris Johnson, he ran the fastest recorded 40 yard dash in the history of the NFL combine i think it was 4.24 but i know for sure dominique rodgers-cromartie ran 4.29 Tyreek Hill is the fastest NFL
The fastest man ever in the NFL should be the man that has ran the fastest 40 ever in the NFl period, not just one cerntain year alone
depends-- as far as game speed- probly Dion sanders (primetime) But titans RB chris Johnson recorded thar fastest 40 time to date at the combine which was 4.24
Fastest Time: 2:03:02 ( Geoffrey Mutai , 18APR2011 in the Boston Marathon) * World Record: 2:03:38 ( Patrick Makau , 25SEP2011 in the Berlin Marathon) * not recognized by the IAAF as a World Record because it was run on a course with a net elevation loss.
The fastest time ever for the Men's 100 meter is 9.63 seconds. Thiswas accomplished by Usain Bolt who has been dubbed the fastest manalive.

The NFL's fastest official 40 yard dash time was 4.25 seconds by cornerback Fabian Washington.
Bo Jackson ran a 4.12 but it was not electronically timed and therfore could not be verified. Chris Johnson ran a 4.24 at the NFL Combine: The fastest electronically timed 40 yard dash.
The fastest electric time was 4.21 by Chris Johnson. The fastest hand time (which was always off) was Bo Jackson at 4.11.
Through the 2008 season, that is Jerry Rice with 23,546 all purpose yards (22,895 yards receiving, 645 yards rushing, and 6 yards on kick returns),
The world record for 100 metres is 9.71 seconds. The 100 yard dash is not generally used in international events (having been replaced by the 100 metre sprint). However, it is still occasionally run in the United States in certain competitions. The world record for the 100 yard dash is 9.0… seconds flat by R.P. Williams in 1906. I don't know who this R. P. Williams is, but no runner in 1906 ever came close to a 100 yd. time of 9.0 sec. The world record for the 100 yds was 9.2 in the early 1960's and was lowered in 1966 to 9.1. by Canada's Harry Jerome. Maybe "1906" should read 1976 or 1986. surreyfan ( Full Answer )
im sure plenty have... i think Chris Johnson's already done it a few times this yearbut only 2 players in NFL history have rushed for 1,000 yrds and received for 1,000 yrds in the same year. Rodger Craig did it for the 9'ers and Marshall Faulk did it for the rams
As of January 3rrd 2010 the answer is six. Chris Johnson from the Tenessee titans was the latest to be added to the list. The list is rounded out with O.J. Simpson, Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Terrell Davis, and Jamal Lewis.
The "fastest man ever" title belongs to running back Bo Jackson,who ran a 4.12 second (hand timed) 40.
O.J. Simpson was the first player to surpass the 2000-yard milestone. He did so in the season of 1973, back when they only had 14 games per season.

WR Rondel Melendez in 1999 and RB Chris Johnson both ran a 4.24 which are the fastest recordings since 1999 when electronic timing was implemented.
Well I could be wrong here but, I believe it's an old old wooden ship, used in the civil war times.
Chris Johnson, running back for the Tennessee Titans is the fastest guy in the American Conference. He was a track star at Orlando's Olympia High School, and was an All-Conference USA player at East Carolina (2004-2007).
Desean Jackson is the fastest. Adrian Peterson is 2nd. and I would say Devin Hester is 3rd.
It is unknown what Usain Bolt's 100y split was when he ran 9.58 for 100m, but it was probably close to 8.8 and it is definitely the fastest anyone has ever run it. Agreed, but since the 100 yard event went the way of the dodo sometime in the early 1970's, the official 100 yd. record is still abo…ve 9 seconds. I know that the late Harry Jerome ran it in 9.1 sec. in 1966. Seems to me Bob Hayes also matched that speed. but can't think of anyone else running it faster over an actual 100 yard distance. I have made some calculations based on Bolt's 100 m. time of 9.58 sec. based on probabilities for the 100 yd split. The fact that all 100 m. sprinters decelerate slightly after 75 to 80 meters (when they have reached their optimum speed), means that Bolt loss of speed was likely less at 100 yds than at the tape. Based on the fact that 100 yds is the equivalent of 92.9 m., a 10 sec. flat 100 m. time means the 100 yd. split is at least .71 sec. lower. Taking this into consideration, Bolt's 100 yd. time in his record 100 meter race, (being well below a 1 sec. per 10 meter pace ) would have been no more than 8.8 sec. and perhaps as low as 8.76 sec.

Nick Rippy passed for 100 touchdowns in 34 games for the Dallas Cowboys from 2001-2003.
There has yet to be a formal 100 meter times event where the players from BOTH code are timed. However, in 2009/10 Bryan Habana did undertake a time trial and cam in at 10.15 seconds. However, there was a record shown on national TV UK where he was caught by winger Shane Williams of Ospreys and Wale…s in the Autumn internationals at Cardiff. However, this was not formally timed by GBR (Guinness Book Of Records Officials). It would be an excellent event to bring the top runners from the BOTH codes together at some point. Until now the only formal timing is ; Bryan Habana ( Full Answer )
