None of those guys are as fast as Usain Bolt.
Yes, but how fast will Usain Bolt be able to run after taking years and years of hard hits from safeties and linebackers like the guys shown in the video?

Ethan Siegel, a theoretical astrophysicist at Lewis & Clark College, recently charted a graph to demonstrate that, judging by the incremental progression of the 100-meter world record over the past hundred years, Bolt appears to be operating at a level approximately thirty years beyond that of the expected capabilities of modern man. Mathematically, Bolt belonged not in the 2008 Olympics but the 2040 Olympics. Michael Johnson, the hero of the 1996 Olympic summer games, has made the same point in a different way: A runner capable of beating Bolt, he says, "hasn't been born yet."
I don't understand or know anything about american football but that guy, whom I don't know either, was very interesting to watch.
