Sub 4.3, I think thats a stretch, but alot of you continue to say Corey Bradford, hes no spring chicken anymore, though he is fast I dont think hes as fast as he was as a younger guy, hes getting up there in age.

I am trying to find the combine and pro day stats for DeAngelo Hall...there were some hand timings of him with a 4.15...which really translates into about a 4.2. I saw an interview with Vick and Hall about a month ago where Vick conceded that Hall had a faster 40 time than him on paper, but he promptly said that at some point he would "see what the rook's got" during spring training.

For the Texans my vote is like this...in shorts it's Bradford, in pads it's AJ.

I think Bethel Johnson or Deangleo Hall are the fastest in the NFL. Bethel Johnson ran a 4.27 40 at the combine, which would be close to De Hall. The fastest on the Texans is probably Corey Bradford.

Bethel Johnson is 237 on the list.
Andre Johnson is 5/

Steve McKinney can run a 5.2 40. He'll leave all of em in the dust. Hall, AJ, Bethel - smoke. Make those guys look like mud turtles. McKinney is gonna be in the Olymics in Greece this summer. #76 has my vote easy.

In the NFL it's Michael Bennett of the Vikes. He's a freak.
On our team I would say Bradford.

I agree on Micheal Lewis being the fastest guy out there.

Thanks, he set a record with 3 straight games with a 60+ yard TD run. That guy is fast.

Remember when Micheal Lewis caught JJ from behind during the Saints game last year. I thought JJ was gone and out of nowhere comes Lewis.

Man... finally I start seeing more Michael Lewis, I thought something was wrong with me!

It's crazy how fast that man is... It's like he is on a completely different field as everybody else. I'm gonna assume he can run the 40 somewhere in the 4.1 range...

While Bradford in his younger days may have been faster than AJ, anyone that has the Miami game on tape I want you to take a look at Bradford's slant pattern for a touchdown (the 76 yarder or whatever it was). Bradford is busting *** down the field as fast as he can to stay in front of the DB, and (in my opinion) Johnson is keeping stride a few yards behind him yet barely even seems to be trying. Maybe its just a difference in running styles, but it looked as if Johnson could have kicked into another gear and blown past all of them.
