It’s a given that NFL players have athleticism that’s far beyond the average person. But even in a league of exceptional athletes, there are those who stand out from the pack. There is a small collection of freakish athletes who belong in a league of their own, at least when it comes to pure athleticism.
Oddly enough, there is also a group of NFL players who find ways to make a living in the league despite being a little slight of build or out of shape. It actually makes for a rather interesting comparison when you see the two types of players side by side.
