JPPs athleticism is overrated IMO. There's a couple DEs that I'd consider better athletes

pitcher is a different story than outfield. Weeden is not like the other two

No way. Who else do you think is more athletic? The only one I can see making a case is Peppers.

Jake Locker was also an outfielder.

Yeh it sure is. Hes a freak. You say Peppers, Williams and Watt are more athletic, well thats 3 guys and somehow hes overrated. Its close between those 4. But Peppers in his Prime is the most athletic.

On another note, i told you guys that Graham could be #1 and turns out he is.

aldon smith and jpp's combine numbers are eerily similar, and aldon went to the combine on a bad leg.

ETA: Nevermind....It has to be Adrian Peterson..


I'm sure it will be, but honestly I'd put Watt #1. This is a 285-290 pound man:

I'd also rank Vernon Davis top 5, but I don't mind him missing out.

that is straight up amazing


I think he would be an insane center in basketball.

One of the most illogical things said on here.
No, JJ wouldn't be an insane center. Hes only barely 6-5. Its not so easy to just switch sports. These athletes have been training their bodies to adjust to the sport they want to play. N its not even a smart comparison. A 6-5 center. In todays league?

I understand if you know absolutely nothing about basketball (What it clearly looks like) but don't go around saying dumb [inappropriate/removed] like that.

What about Chris Long, imho is the 5th most athletic DE in the NFL.

1. JJ Watt
2. JPP
3. Peppers
4. Mario Williams
5. Chris Long

This is off the top of my head, could be more but people forget the guy is pretty athletic.

I think both Everson Griffen and Brian Robison are ridiculously athletic at the DE position as well.

most players on the 49ers consider aldon smith the most athletic person on the team. on a team that has freaks like vd, willis, and joe staley.
