Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey is the offensive Swiss Army knife of this year’s draft class. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound beast can dominate the defense as a running back, wide receiver and return specialist. What helps McCaffrey excel at these different positions is his blazing speed.

Recently, McCaffrey posted a video on Twitter that shows how unbelievably fast his footwork is, and yes, it’s in real time.
The feat is so impressive that retired NFL receiver Chad Johnson, one of the best route runners to ever play the game, commented on the video.
The video is mind-blowing, but it’s not shocking news that McCaffrey has blazing foot speed. During the NFL Combine, he was the fastest running back in the 3-Cone Drill and the 60-Yard Shuttle. He also finished in the top five for the 20-Yard Shuttle and 40-Yard Dash.
