Another guy that’s short in stature, but packs a whole lot of power is Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew. Jones-Drew has been able to realize the full potential of his 4.39-second 40-yard dash speed and his 36-inch vertical leap. Talk about strong legs! That’s one insanely quick running back. Not to mention the fact that he posted 18 reps of the 225-pound bench press and routinely runs right through defensive backs trying to take him down.
Jones-Drew made Men’s Fitness’ previous list of fittest NFL players where he credited the help of “core-building exercises” for giving him the power and explosiveness Jaguars fans have come to know and love. Oh, and they also helped give him a physique worthy of ESPN The Magazine’s Annual Body Issue. Well, well, well.
