Got to be AP at 1. Hard though because he and Watt should be top 5. Tough choice though.

Russell Wilson could easily be number 1. Got drafted in two pro leagues


So did Colin Kaepernick. And Brandon Weeden.

Agreed. Even though he is getting up there in age and his commitment/effort may not have always been 100% he is a freak athlete.

Absolutely. His combination of size, speed, strength, and explosion is basically unmatched...throughout the history of the NFL.

Surprised at no mentions of Vernon Davis. 6'3" 253, 4.38, 33 reps of 225, 42 inch vertical.

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


Anyone else hear him say "5 and a half" at 0:41? HAHA 55" is 5 and a half feet according to JJ Watt Laughing Laughing Laughing



Didn't you know feet were 10 inches? Gosh.


Sounds to me like he says 55 and a half

Its hard for me not to be a complete homer here, but, how is Von Miller not on that list at 4 or 5. Last time I checked he was the most athletic front 7 player to come out in a long long time. Has the speed to cover half of the WRs in the NFL but hits as hard as Demarcus Ware. Hen also has the best first step and acceleration of anybody we have seen in over a decade.

probably because he seems like he lost a step. and honestly, his freak athleticism is bit overrated on the football field.

i think AD will win.

Used PEDs, thus his combine, the only reason you have him at 3, is a lot less impressive.
