How Fast is Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill? Here’s How He Stacks Up Against the World’s Fastest Runners (Video)
The Kansas City Chiefs stomped all over the defending Super Bowl champions in Foxborough on Thursday night, and second-year wide receiver Tyreek Hill had a lot to do with it.
Hill, the 165th draft pick in 2016, caught seven passes for 133 yards, including one that turned into a 75-yard touchdown. So basically he picked up right where he left off last year: as one of the most electric offensive players in the AFC.
Of course, as any Chiefs fan will tell you, Tyreek Hill’s dominance is built on his speed. Bengals rookie John Ross may have broken the record for fastest 40 at the NFL combine, but the 5’10” 185-pound Hill could give him a run for his money as fastest player in the NFL.
Just how fast is Tyreek Hill? On Thursday night NBC took his 200m time from high school and compared it to the 200m finals at the 2016 Summer Olympics, and, well, take a look:

Yeah, I’d say that’s pretty good.
With Tyreek Hill and rookie Kareen Hunt catching and running, and Alex Smith looking like Aaron Rodgers, the Chiefs offensive is going to be pretty potent this year.
