If somebody asked you to name the fastest player on the Pittsburgh Steelers, no one would fault you for guessing it’s wide receiver Antonio Brown, the 4-time Pro Bowler who blows by defenders every Sunday during the season. But according to a recent video posted to Snapchat, you’d be wrong.

Turns out the fastest player on the team is Steelers third-year linebacker Ryan Shazier. That’s right, a linebacker. Coming out of Ohio State University, Shazier ran a 4.36 40-Yard Dash at his Pro Day. That’s blazing, especially for a 6-foot-1, 230-pound linebacker.
The race on Snapchat shows Brown, Shazier, Markus Wheaton, Eli Rogers and Sammie Coates squaring off in a sprint.
The end was close, but it’s clear that Shazier won.
