There’s very little question that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is the most-electric player at his position in the NFL. He proved it over and over and over again Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
With his Chiefs now set to take on Marquise Goodwin and the San Francisco 49ers, the question now becomes who is the fastest player in the NFL?
A former United States Olympian in the 2012 Summer Games, Goodwin chimed in brilliantly on this debate.
49ers’ Marquise Goodwin on who’s faster: Him or KC’s Tyreek Hill. “I don’t compare myself with anybody,” Goodwin said.
Then he rolled up his sleeve and showed a tattoo of the Olympic rings.
“I’ll let you interpret that however you want,” Goodwin said.

When in doubt, point to the body art. It just makes too much sense. Not a word needed. The ink shows for itself.
Goodwin ran a 4.27 40-yard dash during the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine. Meanwhile, Hill himself flashed with a 4.25 of his own during the pre-draft process back in 2016.
While not as accomplished as his counterpart in Kansas City, it stands to reason that a world-class athlete (literally) like Goodwin might be faster.
Though, there’s only one way to decide this. How about a 100-yard dash between the two prior to Sunday’s game at Arrowhead? Make it happen, please.
