    Ahman Green and his 4.17 40 spent most of his career with Green Bay. What team drafted him and what team did he finish his NFL career with?

    Good question. I did not know about the Texans or the Alouettes or the 4.17 sec 40 yard dash time. Did know about the NightHawks.

    4.17
    Ahman Green (Nebraska) posted a 4.17 back in 1998. Green played 11 seasons for three different NFL franchises.

    The four-time Pro Bowler is in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and is the all-time rushing leader in Packer history.

    4.15
    Darrell Green (Texas A&M-Kingsville) ran a 4.15 back in 1983. Green spent his entire 20-year career with the Redskins where he was known for most of it as the NFL’s fastest man.

    Green was selected to seven Pro Bowls, played in three Super Bowl — winning two — and was the 1996 Walter Payton Man of the Year.

    4.14
    In 1990, Alexander Wright (Auburn) clocked a 4.14 at the combine. The Dallas Cowboys selected the in the second round of the NFL Draft that year. He played a total of seven seasons for three teams: the Cowboys, Raiders and Rams.
    4.12
    The 40 time to rule them all — the legendary 4.12 put up by Bo Jackson (Auburn) in 1986. Though it has been questioned because of the human element involved, it’s not hard to imagine Jackson running a 4.12 40 if you’ve ever seen him play or even seen highlights.

    NFL fans would have to wait a year to see Bo on the gridiron, as he was pursuing a professional baseball career with the Kansas City Royals that put his pro football debut on hold.

    Bo spent his entire NFL career with the Raiders, which should not come as a surprise. The Raiders have always been known to value speed over pretty much everything else. In fact, of the 36 players mentioned in this article, exactly one-third of them spent time with the Raiders during their careers.

    4.21
    Almost as if on purpose, Deion Sanders (Florida State) turned in a 40 time in 1989 where the numbers behind the decimal matched his jersey. Sanders is widely regarded as the best cover corner in the history of the game and one of the faster players ever as well.

    The other guy to run a 4.21 was Don Beebe (Chadron State) in 1989. Beebe was one of the most dependable slot receivers in history, doing his best work with the Buffalo Bills from 1989 t0 1994. He appeared in six Super Bowls with two teams — Buffalo and the Green Bay Packers.

    ACKSHULLY.... Ahman went back to the packers after playing for the Texans after the packers had a rash of injuries at running back. It was weird because he wore the jersey number 34 instead of his iconic #30. It was during this short stint that he became the packers' all time leading rusher

    Fun fact: Ahman had a small role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as "Thug #2," but his scene was cut from the final version of the film.

    I met him at the PF Chang's in Omaha shortly after he joined the Texans. He had me take a picture of him and his family in front of the big horse statue out front. Super chill guy.

    A friend of mine was friends with Green his freshman year and at one point he said that Jay Sims was the fastest guy on the team. Kinda hard to believe, but watching Sims against MSU (I think) it might be true.

    Ahman actually went back to the Packers after the Texans. He only played part of the season in 2009 for Green Bay.
