Who is the quickest player in NFL in 2022?

Seeing a player fly down the field at tremendous speeds can get viewers’ hearts racing, especially if the player is a wide receiver seeking to score. It defines the majority of games. Speed is one of a player’s most valuable assets on the field, but have you ever wondered who the quickest player in the NFL is?

Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs, Raheem Mostert of the San Francisco 49ers, Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens, and Henry Ruggs of the Las Vegas Raiders are just a few names that spring to mind.

The best technique to determine a metric is to use 40-yard dash times as a reference point. The majority of NFL players do not pass for 40 yards in a single play. As a result, it makes the most sense to time them inside this range. The NFL‘s Next Gen Stats are also taken into consideration.

Quickest time in 2020-21


During the regular season, a few players posted outstanding timings, with the following being the top times for the 2021 season: Jonathan Taylor from Colts with a Top speed of 22.13 mph in week 15 for 67-yard rushing TD, Marquez Valdes-Scanting from Packers with a Top speed of 22.09 mph in week 11 for 75-yard receiving TD and Patrick Surtain from Broncos with a top speed of 22.07 mph in week 12 for 70-yard interception TD.

The figures mentioned here, however, were last updated in August of 2021, and a lot has transpired since then.

With an 80- and a 76-yard touchdown in Weeks 1 and 2, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, Raheem Mostert is the fastest player (with the ball in his hands) of the 2020 season, clocking in at a top speed of 23.09 and 22.73 mph, respectively.

John Ross is the all-time and active player with the highest electronic clocking numbers. In 2017, he recorded a new personal best of 4.22 seconds in the 40-yard dash. In 2020, rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs III of the Oakland Raiders came close with a 4.27 40 time.

About the 40-yard dash

Micah Parsons, a rookie linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys, beat some of the league’s quickest players in the 40-yard sprint during this year’s Pro Bowl talent competitions. On the track, Parsons, who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 245 pounds, outperformed Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb and fellow cornerback Trevon Diggs.

Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs finished last, which was surprising. For next season, we might have to find a new speed king. Parsons ran the 40-yard sprint in 4.39 seconds at Penn State during his Pro-Day.
