Aside from Leonard Fournette, no NFL player recorded a faster in-game speed in 2017 than Martavis Bryant.

Bryant reached a top speed of 21.72 mph during a 96-yard kickoff return touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 13.

Unfortunately, the touchdown was called back due to penalty, but it was a scintillating display of speed.

At T.L. Hanna High School (Anderson, South Carolina), Bryant was a standout on the track team.

His personal-best in the 200 meters was a blazing 21.46 seconds.

At the 2014 NFL Combine, Bryant clocked a 4.42 40-Yard Dash.
