Tyreek Hill isn't the only NFL player nicknamed "Cheetah."

Donte Jackson, a rookie cornerback for the Carolina Panthers, also goes by the same moniker.

At the 2018 NFL Combine, Jackson's 4.32 40-Yard Dash was tied for the fastest among all players.

A former track star, Jackson clocked a wind-legal personal best of 10.22 in the 100-Meter Dash at the 2017 SEC Relays.

He was also a member of LSU's SEC Champion 4×100-meter relay team.

While Jackson's NFL career is just getting started, he should solidify himself as one of the speediest players in the league.
