“How fast am I? As fast as I need to be,” Cromartie said. He’s smiling as he says that, but he’s fully serious. “Yeah, I think I’m the fastest man in the NFL. I don’t know who’s faster.”

His Name is Hester. Devin Hester.

I'd take Cro in a footrace any day. Hester is and will always be the greatest returner of all time, but I don't think it's because of his straightline speed, which is still obviously excellent.

I read this article and absolutely nothing surprised me, which is crazy. Cro's already stated he wants 15 picks, which is absurd. Then again, teams have to throw at him, don't they? Jammer is seriously a blanket when he's on his game, and the Charger pass rush will be as scary as ever...

“I said, ‘Antonio, you’re not going to do that, you’re not an Olympic high jumper,’ ” said Williams, who has worked with Olympic athletes such as sprinter Lauryn Williams. “He just said, ‘We’ll see.’ So we get to the vertical jump and they set the top height at 44 inches.


“Well, Antonio jumps up and cups his hand over the top of the whole thing. Everybody goes silent and just kind of looks at each other. They didn’t know what to really do. But it takes awhile to set up the apparatus to measure the jump, so they just write 45 and move on. It was just ridiculous. It was way past 45, whatever it was.”


That is insane.

I would take DeAngelo Hall, Chris Johnson, and Jerome Mathis in races against him. Besides them, I'm not sure.

Hester said, he doesnt compete in the fastest men competition cause he knows he is the fastest

That means he is scared. If he really believed that then he would do it, see DeAngelo Hall.

Cromartie's a beast. I loved him coming out of FSU. Hopefully he can repeat what he accomplished last season.

Had they traded back into the round a little higher, the Niners could have had him (which would have been awesome) and not Manny Lawson. Oh well, that wasn't a bad draft for the Niners. But yes, sucks Parcells took someone who ended up being a waste of a pick.

What i don't understand is how Hester timed horribly at the Combine =/. Shows you how much THAT means.

Cro is just a ridiculous athlete, there is flat out no other way to put it...This pick was incredible:

He is an incredible athlete, and he's fun to watch...Anytime the ball is in his hands he is a threat to score, if it weren't for injury concerns he could be a very deadly punt returner on a consistent basis...Every single one of his physical traits are off the charts, if he starts to cover better on a more consistent basis it could be scary.

I can't think of a better athlete right now in the NFL . Back in the day you had Deion and Bo . This dude is just off the charts !!!

He timed a a 4.2-4.3 at his pro day.

At the NFL scouting combine it was his first time running without cleets i believe

Personally I wanted Manny Lawson more...He is a perfect fit for Wade Phillip's scheme and would flourish here...Cro hurts but I doubt we get Adam Jones if we had him, so that makes it not as bad as having Carp with no spot.

our team is so young and so talented with a lot of depth, the future of the bolts is looking great for us

Cro is a beaaast. It really sucks we have to play the Chargers twice a year.

Denver - Dre Bly and Champ Bailey.
San Diego - Cro and Jammer.
Oakland - Asomugha and Hall.

Pretty sick CB tandems for a young QB to face. Damn you, AFC West! Damn you!

His Name is Hester. Devin Hester.

Cromartie has Jerry Rice speed...no one anywhere can catch him. The footrace I'd like to see is Jerious Norwood Devin Hester and Cro.

In that race I'm not sure who'd be able to pull it out, but I know not many people anywhere are as fast as Norwood, that kid can FLY.

And forget all those Atlanta fans who were telling me how much I was a homer for lovin Cromartie like he wasn't talented...where are my ney sayers now?

I would just like to reitterate that DHall is faster than him.

Cromartie is going be a huge playmaker his entire career as long as he can stay healthy. A.J Smith took a huge risk drafting a Junior that had an injured knee and it has paid off big time. Big props to Smith
