    Quick break....(speed)

    From all this 'which draft pick' hullabaloo!! Call it a quick hit...Who was the fastest Ram player of the modern era....For me, it's a toss up between Alexander Wright and Ron Brown. With Kevin Curtis right behind..Done.(See told you it was quick!)

    Hands down Hakim. He was the biggest compliment we had in Martz's offense. Second I would say "Flipper" Anderson. Speed and break away speed.

    Pure speed it had to be Ron Brown. The guy was a world class sprinter. Has an Olympic Gold medal. Hakim was fast but not that fast

    Brown was fast but I think it was more straight line speed. Getting in an out of breaks and slants Hakim all the way.

    Yes, Brown had that straight line speed, but Hakim had that "break-your-ankles" agility.

    Just a shame his hands were not as good as they could have been.....on occasions.

    But I guess there is straight speed, game speed, break speed.

    Didn't see much of Alexander Wright play. Wasn't he injured most of the time?? Though I do remember Brown being VERY fast on some of his kick-offs.

    I'm sure he out ran (as in pulled away) Darell Green in one game during the mid/late eighties. That is quick..

    What was his official 40 time?

    in the regular season in 1989, flipper caught a td pass from everett, it looked like the rest of the field was in slow motion, he simply burned them all off with ease, I have never seen anyone burn a secondary so easily and obviously.

    What about Chris Johnson, the CB/KR from about 3 seasons ago. He got a kick return touchdown against the Seahawks. He said he ran a 4.18 40, he even got it tatooed on his legs

    I remember seeing that tat on an article about him. He was the "fastest" player in the NFL at that time

    Has anyone turned in a MEASURED (I'm not buying the CJ 4.18) 40 time faster than Hill or Wade?
