Buccaneers WR Miller Says He’s Faster Than Chiefs Speed Demon Tyreek Hill

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2019 sixth-round pick Scotty Miller got a lot of exposure on Sunday after he scored a critical touchdown right at the end of the half of the NFC title game in Lambeau Field against the Packers.

Miller got even more exposure on Tuesday when Hall of Fame wide out Cris Carter came out and said that the Packers underestimated Miller because…wait for it…he’s white.

“He’s white. I’m black. I’m going to say this… The Defensive Back underestimated that white kid,” Carter said Tuesday on The Pat McAfee Show.

Now Miller is making waves of his own. Speaking Wednesday on The Dan Patrick Show, the second-year Bucs receiver says that he thinks that he’s FASTER than speedy Kansas City Chiefs wide out Tyreek Hill and would beat him one-on-one in a footrace.

“I’m taking me, every day of the week,” Miller said on the show.

“I’ll take me over anybody. Tyreek is unbelievable, super quick, unbelievable talent. But if we’re talking about a race, I’ve got all the confidence in myself going up against anybody.”

Here’s a tweet with the clip of Miller talking about Hill.

Many think that Hill is not only the fastest wide out but the fastest player in all of the NFL. PFT reports that Hill ran a 4.29 at his Pro Day a few years back, while Miller ran a 4.39

Here’s a bit of that speed from Hill, so you can decide on who is faster.

Miller is largely an unknown but has made some big plays in the postseason. In the regular season, he had 33 grabs for 501 yards and three scores. He’s also one of Tom Brady’s favorites, which doesn’t hurt.

Hill had a huge season for Kansas City, pulling in 87 catches for 1,276 yards and 15 scores.

The two receivers will have a chance to prove their speed and big play ability in Super Bowl LV in Tampa a week from Sunday.

  1. During Tyreek Hill’s rookie season I thought to myself, “Good Lord this dude is Antonio Brown 2.0.” The most impressive thing about Hill (other than his insane speed) is his unbelievable athleticism. The dude tracks the football and makes some of the most insane catches that he has no business making at that size. Oh, and then, like you see above, get him in the open field and game over. Dude has next level instinct. A lot of NFL guys have speed, but I have never seen any NFL guy have that speed, that athleticism, and that instinct. The reason scouts can’t scout QB’s is because they haven’t understood how to scout instinct (perhaps it’s impossible). Mahomes is so good because he has the best QB instinct we’ve ever seen (Brady has it, Manning had it, Rodgers, etc…). There was a play in the game that no one will ever talk about or think about, but Mahomes stepped up in the pocket under duress and made a throw (completion of course) and then scrunched both shoulders at the exact right time to soften the hit that was coming behind him, that he somehow magically felt even though it made no sense. Mahomes ability to sense pressure is something I’ve never seen before as an avid QB watcher in the NFL. It is literally ridiculous. The thing that sets him apart from Rodgers is watching Rodgers get sacked by Shaq in the 1st half last game as he stepped up in the pocket, Mahomes would have felt that and made some ridiculous all arm throw side arm while being sacked for a completion. It’s sick.
