On Monday, former TCU Horned Frogs wide receiver Kolby Listenbee showed a lot of confidence. After being drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth-round of the 2016 NFL Draft, he told the reporters on a conference call that he could be ‘the fastest wide receiver in the NFL.’
“I’m the fastest player probably in the NFL,” he said. “So I bring speed, I got great hands. Right now, I got a chip on my shoulder, because I got to go out there and show what I have and I mean. I just work hard.”
He even explained why he says he’s the fastest.
“Because I can go to the Olympics if I wanted to,” Listenbee said.
At the NFL Combine in Feb. at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind., he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds. It was the eighth-fastest time of all the invitees.
He said he could have been faster, because he was dealing with a double sports hernia at the time.
With the Horned Frogs, he was a football player and a track star. He was a four-time All-American and ran the 100-meter dash, as well as the 4×100 and 4×400 relays.
According to the school, his best 100-meter time is 10.03 seconds.
“Probably would have had a million dollars, to be honest,” Listenbee said. “I mean, I think my track time says enough. I don’t even need to run the 40. I got drafted. I mean, Coach has seen me, what I can do. I basically — when they say I was going to be a 4.30, 4.33 with the sports hernia, so I mean, it is basically a 4.25 to me.”
The Bills also another speedster on their roster. They’ve given Marquise Goodwin permission to train for this summer’s Rio Olympics in the long jump.
He also competed in the 2012 Olympics.
When Goodwin ran the 40-yard dash, he had the third-fastest time in NFL Combine history. He had a 4.27 in 2013.
