Biggest Freak of all time?

Recommended Posts

Curious to who everyone view as the biggest athletic freak to ever grace the NFL? Be it size, speed, power and longevity. 

First that comes to mind is Megatron, Bo Jackson and Randy Moss.

Lawrence taylor and reggie white size and speed combo and they could play. 

Ap, megatron and moss were freakishly athletic.

Is this based on just NFL athleticism or just pure athletic ability?? A bunch of combine workout warriors would and should be high on this list. But if you're taking into account their NFL play level then it should be Bo, Moss and Deoin.

Julius Peppers is never mentioned in this discussion, but should be - 6' 7" 283, ran in the low 4.7s, was athletic enough to play for the North Carolina basketball team as a PF (he scored 21 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in his last game, a loss to Penn State in the 2nd round of the NCAA tournament). 

I think he's a freak in the same vein as Bo or Deion, but he doesn't get mentioned enough in these discussions. While his raw athleticism is good enough to get into the talk, his on field production and longevity probably exceeds everyone else.

I've just seen a vid of Christian McCaffery (no taller than 5'9...dont @ me) dunk. Easily.

 

I think Von is a freak, with his suddness and in-human bend

 

but I'd be tempted to give it to any 300+ lbers who can also run quite fast. Ridiculous.

In order to be considered a freak:

You have to have the nickname "THE Freak" (Jevon Kearse for you youngsters out there). What could have been if he stayed healthy...

Julius Peppers, Gronk, Calvin Johnson, Randy Moss, Adrian Peterson, SaQuon Barkley, Cam Newton.

I'm looking at this from a pure strength, speed, and athleticism combination.
