I know Leo Bookman a WR on the Packers runs a 4.20.... but his receiving skills are spotty.

As far as RBs... I'd say FWP is pretty darned fast.

There's a huge difference between the concept of "fast" and "quick", which is what I think this post is trying to disseminate. Fast is Michael Bennett. He's the only RB I know of that really can beat anyone else on the field.

Being quick and, more importantly. elusive is definitely LT. He just makes people miss and is quick to burn them on their mistakes.

Parker is fast but doesn't exactly fit either of these scenarios as good as the previously mentioned players.

M.Bennet is so fast that its impossible to block for him. Its funny watching him play, he just runs right past his blockers everytime.

Found this video on youtube.com because I can't remember a time I've ever really seen Bennett's speed. He's really, really fast.

I tried to find a clip of FWP racing the pitbull, but nothing came up.....

I think FWP portis and Bennett are all pretty equal.

Yeah bennet is probably the fastest, but wanted to know in your opinion when watching a game which player seems the fastest.

Ben Watson looked like he was being chased by a pack of blood thirsty junk yard pitbulls when he ran 105 yards crossfield to rail champ bailey into the sidelines.....everytime i watch the replay, i cant believe how fast he looked on tv running down/cross field past everyone.

Fastest RB would have to be Quentin Griffin. Fastest to go down on contact.
