Raiders speedsters Rico Gafford and Henry Ruggs III discuss potential footrace to see who's faster

The NFL is loaded with speedsters, but the Las Vegas Raiders have two of the fastest in their locker room, and not many teams can say that.

When the Raiders selected Henry Ruggs III in the 2020 NFL Draft, everyone knew the team was getting the quickest player in the class, but a lot of people overlooked the fact they already had a player with 4.26 40-yard-dash speed on the roster; however, following the release of the Madden 21 ratings last week, people are itching to see who's faster between Ruggs and Gafford.

Ruggs is the second-fastest player in Madden 21 with a speed rating of 98, while Gafford is just two points behind him with a rating of 96. At the NFL Scouting Combine, Ruggs ran a 4.27 in the 40-yard dash, one millisecond behind Gafford's unofficial time during his pro day.

After seeing the tweet, Gafford reached out to Ruggs about a potential race between the two, and the former Alabama wide receiver is ready whenever, wherever.

Whatever the outcome is, watching these two race will be a track meet, and I can't wait to watch them get in the blocks. Ruggs might be faster in Madden, but we'll see who holds bragging rights on the field.
