The NFL may soon have a new fastest player. Welsh rugby player Louis Rees-Zammit is leaving Rugby to pursue a dream in the NFL. Rees-Zammit is stupid fast! The 22-year-old once hit a top speed of 24.2 mph during a rugby game and may give current NFL stars a run for their money. As a matter of fact that is 2 miles per hour faster than Tyreek Hill’s fastest time.
Rees-Zammit and 15 others have been selected as the International Pathway Program athletes this year.
At the conclusion of training camp, the group of 16 IPP athletes will be eligible to fill a 17th practice squad roster spot across any of the 32 teams — an additional spot reserved for an international player — following the rule change beginning with the 2024 season applicable to athletes outside of the United States and Canada.
Here are all the players on the list.
