The Fastest Players In College Football, 2011

It’s time for Heismanpundit’s annual list of the fastest players in college football.

Now, some of you are going to disagree with parts of this, most likely by quoting a hand-timed 40-yard dash that you read about on some fan site, or a track time that can’t be independently verified.  And I get that some pretty fast players may not make it here.

But I am basing this list upon hard data, meaning verifiable and relatively recent track times.  If a mark is in the distant past and the player’s body composition has changed markedly or an injury has occurred, I take that into account.   I compile the data and combine it with my knowledge of track and field (I am an aficionado of the sport) as well as my own observations of how these players move on the gridiron, plus other factors such as weight gain and abundance of available data.

This list recognizes that most of the 40-yard dash times reported out there are bogus, due not only to inaccurate and scurrilous timing methods (a strength coach’s thumb being the main arbiter most of the time), but also because they are run under widely disparate and unreported conditions that render them unreliable.

The list is not about anecdotal evidence, but quantifiable data that we can verify.  Track marks are generated under mostly uniform conditions (across a narrow range of parameters) with reliable timing instruments.  While it is true that some players without a track time might indeed be very fast on the football field, it is difficult to accurately measure their speed compared to players who do have such times. So those are the players we stick to on this list.

Also, some of you will question the relevance of these marks when it comes to football, as in “Why does it matter if a football player can run a fast 200 meters when a football field is 100 yards?”  The answer is that each track event provides us clues as to the overall speed potential of an athlete.  A certain 100-meter time relates to a certain 40-yard dash mark.  There’s basically no need to time a 10.60 or better sprinter in the 40–-you already know he’s fast, probably in the 4.4 to 4.5 range!  A good 200-meter time indicates an athlete’s ability to maintain his speed (and hence, go ‘downtown’ on the football field). When someone long jumps a certain distance, it is often because he possesses excellent foot speed.  And so on.  Remember: ‘Quick’ and ‘fast’ do not always go hand in hand.

But track marks help give us a more accurate measurement of true speed. We do take a few other factors into account to come up with what we think is an accurate list so it’s not just a matter of ranking players by best marks.  Oh, and most of these guys are pretty darn good football players, too.  Think track and football don’t mix?  Well, at HP they do.  So take another look.  Without further ado (and please, any additions are welcome if we overlook them), here is the list for 2011:

1. Jeff Demps, RB, Florida — The Gator running back leads this list for the fourth year in a row.  With Demps, we are essentially talking about the fastest legitimate player in the history of college football.  There might conceivably be one or two who were slightly faster on the track in college–Trindon Holliday comes to mind–but they didn’t come close to Demps’ production on the football field.  Demps has a career best of 10.01 in the 100 meters, which he ran as a senior in high school.  Since then, despite the rigors of football wearing on his body, he has cranked out a wind-legal best of 10.06 and a wind-aided 9.96, while winning the 2010 NCAA title in the 100m.  It makes you wonder what times he would’ve produced had he just focused on track.  As it is, no other previous NCAA 100m champ has come close to Demps career numbers on the gridiron: 1,901 rushing yards, 2,601 all purpose yards and 18 total touchdowns thus far. He has also run a 6.53 in the indoor 60-meter dash (winning the NCAA indoor crown in the process), a mark that proves his burst is second-to-none (any NFL scout who asks him to run a 40 yard dash next spring should be shot). Demps recently failed to defend his 100m crown, running just 10.40 in the semifinals at the NCAA track meet, but even the best sprinters have a bad race from time to time.  Without a doubt, no other football player–at any level–is faster than Jeff Demps.

Career Bests: 60m — 6.53; 100m — 10.01 (9.96w); 200m — 21.04

2. Marquise Goodwin, WR, Texas – It was a tough task to decide who would be No. 2 behind Demps as a few players had a good case to make, but I had to go with Goodwin for the second-straight year.  The Texas receiver is another athletic phenom in the Demps mold who should be a huge name in track and field one day.  He won the NCAA long jump as a freshman and took fourth this year. To illustrate how the long jump can translate to overall speed (and vice versa), he ran just two 100-meter races this season but still cranked out a best of 10.42, implying that if he did more than dabble in the event his time would be much better.  But the most important item to support his elite speed is his best of 26-10 in the long jump.  A mark like that shows that he has the physical ability to crack the 10.1 mark in the 100m if he chose to do so.  Combine that with a 6.69 in the indoor 60m and you have a player with elite speed.   Goodwin caught 31 passes for 324 yards as a sophomore receiver last year.  I think Texas ought to take better advantage of that speed.

Career Bests: 60m — 6.69; 100m — 10.38; Long Jump — 26-10

3. Luther Ambrose, WR, Louisiana-Monroe – Ambrose was a close third to Goodwin and nearly won out due to the preponderance of the data available. The rising senior has career bests of 10.19 in the 100, 20.89 in the 200, 6.79 in the indoor 60 and he has even long jumped 25-2. He also finished third behind Demps in the NCAA 100m final in 2010. However, his most recent track season seemed to reveal a bit of wear and tear on the body due to football, so I gave the nod to Goodwin for second. Ambrose is an NFL prospect and one of the best receivers in the Sunbelt, too, as he caught 65 balls for 752 yards and six touchdowns last year.

Career Bests: 60m — 6.79; 100m — 10.19; 200m — 20.89; Long Jump — 25-2

4. T.J. Graham, WR, NC State – It was really difficult not to put Graham in third, but I went with Ambrose due to his significantly better 100, plus his long jump mark.  But Graham, a true speedster, had a fine track season, notching a season-best 10.37 at the ACC Championships.  He also ran a 6.62 to finish second at the ACC indoor meet, showing he’s really on his game speed-wise this year.  On the field, he caught 24 passes for 293 yards and four touchdowns as a junior for the Wolfpack and looks primed for a big senior season.

Career Bests: 60m — 6.62; 100m — 10.37; 200m — 20.79

5. Randall Carroll, WR, UCLA – Carroll ran a 10.30 as a high school senior and has kept his track skills relatively sharp for the Bruins, with a 100m best of 10.43 this past spring.  He also ran a 21.16 in the 200m into a slight wind, indicating he took his speed training seriously this year and is in very good shape.  He caught 15 passes for 242 yards and two scores for the Bruins as a sophomore.

Career Bests: 60m — 6.82; 100m — 10.30; 200m — 20.91

6. Miles Shuler-Foster, WR, Rutgers – One of the truisms to which I hold dear is that NFL rookies are generally faster than veterans and college freshmen are generally faster than upperclassmen.  It’s simply a matter of there being less wear and tear on the legs.  And so I have Rutgers incoming freshman receiver Miles Shuler-Foster in the number six spot thanks to the 10.39 he ran as a high school junior in Jersey, a cold weather state (something to take into account when determining potential speed).  He also added a 6.85 in the 60 and a 21.31 in the 200m.  He didn’t run much track as a senior, but I don’t dock him any since he is still maturing physically and would probably put up even better marks if he had ran more. Whatever the case, he has a dandy football highlight tape and I think he’ll be a really good player for the Scarlet Knights.

Career Bests: 60m — 6.85; 100m — 10.39; 200m — 21.31

7. Sheroid Evans, CB, Texas  – Evans is an incoming freshman defensive back for the Longhorns who has a best of 10.39 in the 100m as well as a 20.82 in the 200m, both run as juniors.  He also is a standout in the intermediate hurdles.  One of the better overall athletes on this list, which is why he’s slated to play cornerback for Texas.

Career Bests: 100m — 10.39; 200m — 20.82

8. Conroy Black, CB, Utah – Black was a reserve defensive back for the Utes last year, but he came to Utah with a track background at junior college that included a best of 10.30 in the 100m and 20.98 in the 200m.  His long layoff from track and his immersion in football-style training is what lowers him a couple notches on this list.  He had 19 tackles and an interception last season and is on track to start at corner in 2011.

Career Bests: 100m — 10.30; 200m — 20.98

9. Dallas Burroughs, WR, Boise State – Burroughs is one of the fastest players ever to come out of the state of Idaho.  He ran a 10.34 and 21.06 coming out of Rocky Mountain High in Meridian, Idaho.  He might be the fastest player ever to play for Boise State.  He’s an incoming freshman for the Broncos.

Career Bests: 100m — 10.34; 200m — 21.06

10. Damiere Byrd, CB, South Carolina – Another incoming freshman shows up on this list, as South Carolina has snagged a speedy one in Byrd.  He’s got a quick burst, with a best of 6.70 in the indoor 60 along with 10.41 in the 100m. His 21.80 200m does not point to superlative long speed on his part, most likely due to being short legged.  He looks like an excellent cornerback prospect to me.

Career Bests: 60m — 6.70; 100m — 10.41; 200m — 21.80

Honorable Mention: Skye Dawson, TCU; Bradley Sylve, Alabama; Denard Robinson, Michigan; George Farmer, USC; DJ Monroe, Texas; Travis Benjamin, Miami; Andre Debose, Florida; Hunter Furr, North Carolina; Devon Smith, Penn State; Mike Bellamy, Clemson; Sheldon Price, UCLA; LaMichael James, Oregon; Chris Rainey, Florida; Tyron Carrier, Houston; Robert Woods, USC; Quincy Mcduffie, UCF; Lamar Miller, Miami; Sam McGuffie, Rice; Marcus Wheaton, Oregon State

  1. Tim June 14, 2011 at 10:36 am #

    I think you may be selling Denard Robinson a bit short (fair enough, as he only ran track for one spring in college). He ran a 10.28 100m in high school, and a 6.87 60m in the spring of his freshman year in high school.

    The 60-meter time is at least comparable with many of your top 10 (better than a couple), and the 100-meter time is better than almost all. Of course, nobody is going to touch Demps, but if Denard continued running track instead of focusing on football, he’d almost certainly have turned in even better times than the ones he already has.

    • HP June 14, 2011 at 12:05 pm #

      Tim, Denard’s best mark was 10.44, not 10.29. He was on this list last year, but with the layoff from track and the beating his body took over the course of the season, this is why I only have him as honorable mention which, incidentally, is still quite fast.

      • JC June 17, 2011 at 9:44 pm #

        Denard Robinson also ran the 60-meter dash: Denard Robinson, 6.81 (1/16 vs. Ohio State)
        He’s had no major injuries that would impact his speed.
        Not saying he’s the fastest, but he’s one of them.

  2. Drofdarb June 14, 2011 at 10:54 am #

    You might need to include Boise State recruit Dallas Burroughs in your Honorable Mention section if not in the Top 10. As a high school senior this year he ran a 10.34 100m and 21.06 in the 200m. Here’s a link document it: http://www.idahostatesman.com/2011/05/21/1657543/burroughs-sets-100-200-marks.html

    • Heismanpundit June 14, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

      I had Burroughs on my list of fastest incoming frosh, so not sure how I missed him. Thanks for the reminder. List is fixed now.

      • Drofdarb June 14, 2011 at 12:19 pm #

        No problem. Keep up the good work!

  3. Nicholas June 14, 2011 at 12:40 pm #

    Not that I’m a big fan of Randall Carroll, but if you look at his high school career, I think you’ll find he ran 20.91, or something close to that, s his 200m best.

    • HP June 14, 2011 at 2:42 pm #

      It’s actually 21.06…my mistake.

      • Nicholas June 14, 2011 at 3:28 pm #

        Go back to his *junior* year in HS – turns out he *did* have a legal 20.91, which made him the #5 high schooler in the country that year. (I’m just glad to know that my memory can still pull those nuggets out of the depths . . . . )

        Having said all that, his form of the last couple years has been a step or two behind where he was in high school. College football in Div 1 gives your body a lot tougher beating than playing at a relatively small high school.

        • Heismanpundit June 14, 2011 at 9:59 pm #

          You are spot on! Thanks for the correction.

  4. Ethan June 14, 2011 at 1:39 pm #

    What about David Wilson from Virginia Tech?

    He is an All-American in Track, running in the 4X100 relay, Triple Jump, and Long Jump on an Outdoor Track team that just finished 5th in the NCAA Championships.

    Not to mention he is an extremely productive football player and better than most of those guys on the list.

    I think you missed Devon Smith Penn St 6.63 60m/10.49 100m; Harry Adams Auburn 6.63 60m/10.19 100m; Lindsey Lamar USF 6.77 60m/ 10.35 100m; Kenneth Gilstrap Mid Tenn 6.84 60m/10.31 100m/20.98 200m; Sheroid Evans Texas 10.39 100m/ 20.82 200m; Bradley Sylve Alabama 6.76 60m/ 10.24 100m (+2.7)/ 21.25 200m; and Torrance Hunt ECU 6.70 60m among a few others. Trouble with these lists is that then tend to get a bit arbitrary, unless you have someone like Demps who completely separates themselves from everyone else. And even then Demps most recent underwhelming outing at the 2011 NCAA Championships throws some obscurity into it as well. However based on his past performances I think Demps is a clear cut #1, after that though I think every list is going to be pretty subjective as far as 2-10.

  7. Dave June 14, 2011 at 3:48 pm #

    You missed on Derrick Hopkins from USF in addition to Lindsey Lamar. Hopkins was the Big East 100 champion (10.44): http://brsoundingoff.blogspot.com/2011/05/usf-receiver-derrick-hopkins-shows-his.html

  8. Heismanpundit June 14, 2011 at 9:58 pm #

    next reggie–I did miss on Sheroid Evans and he is now on the list and a few others are on the HM now. A couple other marks are not all verified and some like Adams are not really playing football.

    Dave, I checked on Hopkins as he was there last year, but he apparently is not playing much if at all for USF.

  9. NJ Flash June 15, 2011 at 11:11 am #

    If Shuler and Byrd was in a warm weather State, look out! Those two had some great battles on the track and also did very well at National Camps and Combine. What seperates them is they are both quick and fast, with 40″ + verticals. Rutgers and USCe will be happy with the player they got.

  10. Mike Bauer June 15, 2011 at 12:10 pm #

    You lost me with your second pick. Marquise Goodwin may well be the second fastest but you put him that position by extrapolating his performance.

    This is an interesting idea but if it is based on measurable performance then it is flawed due to the extrapolation. I suggest you use the track and field 60 Meter dash as your yard stick (pun intended) I believe it is a better indicator of football speed as it is just over 65 yards which shows breakaway speed,

    You would see that Jeff Demps won the event this year (well off the American record but very close to the NCAA Meet record). Just my $0.02 worth

    • Heismanpundit June 16, 2011 at 12:45 pm #

      I hear what you are saying, but when you long jump 26-10 as Goodwin did, you are basically a 10.1 sprinter if you work at it (which he hasn’t). You can’t jump that far and not be that fast. If you want to see a perfect example of how it extrapolates properly, note that the NCAA long jump champ this year from FSU (Makusha) long jumped 27-6 3/4 and then ran a 9.89 in the 100m to win that race in a collegiate record. There is a direct correlation between being able to long jump that kind of distance and being able to sprint at an elite level. We saw the same thing with Carl Lewis, for instance. To long jump that far, you need to be able to run really, really fast. The supporting evidence of Goodwin’s 60m and 100m times is there and the only reason he hasn’t run faster is that he barely runs those races and doesn’t train for them. His 10.42 is a very good time for someone who probably devotes scant effort to that race.

      • Barry May 11, 2012 at 12:33 pm #

        If long jump is a direct correlation Tennessee’s Justin Hunter has to be mentioned. Also if you haven’t heard of Tennessee’s JUCo WR Patterson you will soon 10.33 -100m in Juco track championships.

      • Avery December 11, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

        Look at the top jumpers in the world and look at their 100m personal bests. Most run around 10.5 and jump over 27 feet. There is not a “direct” correlation between 100m times in long jump. A better correlation would be 60m, since the approach to world class long jumpers is at most, 45m. Also, ALL long jumpers train like sprinters. He does the exact same workouts in practice as the sprinters do. Trust me, he trains for the 100m.

  11. Barnswallow T Duck June 16, 2011 at 9:19 pm #

    This is all intellectually interesting but a complete waste of time. Speed is important but so is lateral ability, the ability to “see” the field, power and the ability to shake tackles. If football were a track meet your listing would be borne out by yardage and scoring stats, but it isn,t. Large Ho and even larger Hum.

    • HP June 17, 2011 at 12:30 pm #

      I never understand why a ranking of a certain skill has to somehow take away from some other necessary football skill. A ranking of the fastest players does not imply that other skills are not important. If I ranked basketball players by height, would you tell me that height didn’t matter that much? Or would you take it for what it was worth?

  12. steve olson June 16, 2011 at 11:52 pm #

    Wondering how you rate Oregon’s freshman class speedsters of DeAnthony Thomas (20.61 200 m, 10.57 100m), BJ Kelly, Devon Blackmon, Rahsaan Vaughn, Christian French (10.68 100m at 6:6 tall), and Tacoi Sumler (10.49 100m).

    • HP June 17, 2011 at 12:32 pm #

      Steve, I love Oregon’s frosh class. Thomas is a very fast guy, as is Blackmon. I saw a 10.80 on Sumler, though, and I doubt that French time is real. I love French as an athlete, he is a real freak.

      Easily one of the fastest classes.

  13. Timbo June 24, 2011 at 6:56 am #

    How about about Cobi Hamilton he burned LSU for 2 80 tds last year and he has posted some good times in The 200.

  14. Sean June 25, 2011 at 10:41 pm #

    Travis Benjamin has to be up here, im not sure on his some of his track time, but i know he ran a (4.26) 40 yard dash a year or 2 ago and ran a (10.40) for miami’s track team in the 100 meter.

  15. terry hunt August 8, 2011 at 9:32 pm #

    My son Torrance ran a electronic 4.25 40 yard dash at the Nike Combine in Baltimore… Also finished 2nd in the Nike Nationals in the 60m, PR 6.70… Also PR in 100m is 10.60 electronic.. LOOK out! He’s at ECU!

  16. mark smith August 27, 2011 at 1:32 pm #

    If im not mistaken, all Navy sprinter, not to be confused with Navy (actually military, currently deployed to afghanistan) Jackie Wilson is preparing to run for college when he returns , he only 20 now but hasn’t decided about which college to run for, As im aware of, only USNA is recruiting him and while in Afghanistan he clocked a 10.08 (1.1) in some of the hottest conditions…..I think we should look out for this guy. and he’s only 5’4, 5’5 the same as Trindon holiday.

    Good choice to serve his country first though.

    • mark smith September 3, 2011 at 2:50 pm #

      I Saw wilson at the Armed Forces track meet, He is verrrrrry fast but colleges hesitate when it come to recruiting from the armed forces because even though these guys are still young they have 4 year commitments and it is verry expensive to buy a military contract out

  17. str8_ballers! September 1, 2011 at 5:05 pm #

    2011-2012 class athletes at southwestern college in (Chula Vista, ca) entering in colleges pretty soon may be ones to watch, not so much 100, 200 meter dash, but in the 40 yard dash, Tyrone Richardson CB clocked at a blazing 4.25 in summer training. Followed by an athlete many are anxious to watch, Sebastian Smith WR who has said to be clocked at a 4.28 in the 40 yard dash, 10.78 in the 100-meter dash, and 22.0 in the 200-meter dash. Look out for these stand out athletes in the upcoming years!

  18. Hassan September 14, 2011 at 11:59 am #

    HP, i love this list and your site but as much as a proponet as using verifiable times as you are, I feel we are putting lil emphasis into the FOOTBALL part, your list is not the fastest Track guy who plays football, it is about the fastest football player. Track times are cool and verifiable and whatnot but FOOTBALL speed is a different thing, some of these track guys run 6.6 60 M and then on the football field they look just ok. There are guys like Darrell Green who had track speed AND football speed. Watch the tape on these guys and you tell me who is fast. Guys like Travis Benjamin at Miami, he has made fast guys look slow since he got there and that is at MIAMI, if you know football you know he is from the MUCK and that is where the fastest football players come from.

  19. Tyler September 26, 2011 at 12:11 am #

    Reggie Dunn Utah? I’m pretty sure he has the same 40 time as Conroy Black. I don’t know the 100m or 200m times though. I just thought I’d give you someone else to look at.

  20. Joe September 26, 2011 at 4:01 pm #

    Have to believe Devon Smith should be top 5. He’s got one of the best HS 60m of all time, 6.63. He has a top 5 HS 55m all time as well( I believe).

  21. jaxon October 29, 2011 at 7:43 pm #

    Justin Gilbert won the Texas relays in the 100m + the state championship in the 200m in highschool.. his best official times are 10.47 + 20.29(he coasted the first 60m).. he is an electric KR/CB at okla st. I’ve watched all of his games since 9th grade to now n nobody has ever come close to catching him from behind

  22. jaxon October 29, 2011 at 7:50 pm #

    and Henry josey (Missouri rb) ran an official 10.50 in highschool and won multiple state championships in the 4×1 + 4×2.. high school teammate of dj Monroe(Tex), quandre diggs(Tex), n Terrance franks(Tex st, also really fast n worth checking out)

    How about RGIII (Robert Griffin III) quarterbk and heisman, Baylor, I saw him blow past def backs at Kansas,
    Oklahoma, and yest those fast def backs at Texas not to mention he could run right and throw back left 40-50 yards and hit his man full stride! He did win big 12 hurddles freshman yr. He has not had opportunity to practice track…Great player to watch…best long ball in country per ESPN! RGIII (Put those initials on the side
    of a rocket!)……Thank you! MD in KC…

    Great article, Chris. Track & Field was dropped at West Virginia University in 2003. We have a group attempting to bring the track & field program back. Thanks to Oliver Luck’s leadership as athletic director, WVU has a spot in the Big-12. With increased revenue to the school due to our new Big-12 association, many of us feel now is the time to bring track back. Your article highlights one of our reasons and reiterates the complementary nature of football and track & field. If you have additional information relating to this topic that may assist us in convincing Oliver to add the track & field program, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    Marvin Bracy, if he is healthy should reign as the fastest kid in college in 2012. He has the national 55m record (6.08 secs) and runs 10.1 – 10.2 consistently. He ran some wind aided 10.05 and 10.06 in 11th and 12th grader in high school.

    Definitely one to watch this year and beyond.

    I know it’s been a while since you wrote this, but I think you missed a couple.

    George Atkinson III – Notre Dame – 10.36
    Josh Atkinson – Notre Dame (twin brother) – 10.39

    Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you provide here and can’t
    wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not
    even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!

    Kyle Fulks, a senior receiver/defensive back at Katy High School and a Baylor commit next year ran a 10.38 in the State Track meet last spring. He also anchored the high school national record setting 4X100 meter relay team.
