    Abe for sure. Vick said that Abraham beat him in that race.

      Not so much anymore but this guy used to be stupid fast. He ran a 4.43 at his pro-day and I think he has one of the fastest 10-yard splits ever.

            Jared Allen is for sure up there when he was with the Chiefs he chased down Willie Parker 30+ yards down the field when every one else gave up on the play which is saying alot.

              So I take it 3-4 OLBs are out of the discussion? If thats the case...

              1. Dwight Freeney - fastest first step in the game. i always wondered how dominant he couldve been as a 3-4 OLB.

              2. Osi Umenyiora - slightly slower than Freeney, but damn close

              3. John Abraham - great pass rusher but he couldve been so much more throughout his career

              4. Robert Mathis - Freeney lite

              5. Trent Cole - A better version of Mathis essentially

              And im going by game speed. I don't give a rat's behind about the combine.

                Its gotta be Freeney. The guy has scary burst off the snap. Him and Mathis are two of the quickest which is why the Colts pass defense is so good.

                Abraham is very quick as well. Though the constant with all of these guys is they are not very good against the run, whereas Jared Allen, Mario Williams etc are extremely explosive as well but are very good against the run

                  Chris Clemons anyone?

                    If we're including 3-4 DEs, Darnell Dockett is extremely quick for a 3-4 End/4-3 DT.

                      gaines Adams is definately up there.

                        no one's quicker off the snap than Dwight Freeney.

                          Julius Peppers routinely runs sprints with the backs instead of the linebackers or linemen. He's run down running backs from behind.

                          He's easily quicker than half the players being mentioned here.

                          I can't find the video of him running pittman down from behind and NFL's highlights only shows his INT run back


                          Also Gaines Adams is one of the most explosive first step offs in the NFL, as does John Abraham and they've got to be mentioned.:(
