Tyreek Hill is a fast, fast man. Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio called him the fastest player he’s seen in the NFL, comparing him to Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders.

There are a couple of noteworthy aspects to Fangio’s comments.

First, this is a coach who’s been around the NFL since the mid-1980s. So, he’s seen thousands of players up close. Secondly, mentioning Hill in the same breath as Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders is pretty amazing.

Though, anyone who has watched this guy embarrass defenders knows Hill has cheetah speed.

Fangio’s Broncos will try to slow Hill and the Kansas City Chiefs down this Sunday, with their scant playoff hopes hinging upon success.
