Buccaneers WR Scotty Miller thinks he's faster than Chiefs' Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill isn't called "Cheetah" for nothing. Apparently, though, one player on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster thinks he's faster than Hill, who arguably is the quickest in the game. 

Bucs receiver Scotty Miller was asked to compare himself to Hill in a recent interview with Dan Patrick. The 23-year-old said he believes he could beat the Chiefs star in a race and also said he believes he's the fastest player in the NFL.

Miller's speed was on display during Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers, though it's hard to imagine him being faster than Hill. 

Both Miller and Hill didn't attend the scouting combine, so there are no official records of their 40-yard dash times. However, Miller reportedly ran a 4.39-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day, while Hill was reported at 4.29 seconds.

The two could always put their speed to the test with a little friendly competition during the offseason, though we'll just have to wait and see if that happens.

In three postseason games, Miller has four receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. Hill, meanwhile, has 17 catches for 282 yards.
