Good point.

Some are faster "out of the blocks" while others are faster once they hit their stride.

Some are faster in straight lines on a track , other in "live" game conditions.

While it's fun to find out who is technically the fastest, I'll take the rather "pedestrian" Jerry Rice's of the game any day....

Just saying....

I think it's interesting to compare Wallace to Heyward-Bey, who I believe was the only guy at the Combine who clocked faster than him, and by a miniscule margin (0.03 of a second). That 3/100s of a sec made Heyward-Bey a first rounder, and a multi-millionaire.

So now look at them. I don't want to judge DHB too harshly, since it's clearly not his fault where he got drafted, and his production is not entirely his fault. Still, it's a little bit of a surprise that you don't see more op-eds doing comparison/contract on him vs. (especially) Wallace, and also vs. Johnny Knox.

It's nice to have a speedster in Mike Wallace and who has terrific hands! I would actually pay money to see that race between Mike Wallace and Chris Johnson. You can throw in Ike Taylor as a bonus
