The 25 Fittest Football Players

The biggest, strongest, fastest, and leanest machines in the NFL.

Drafted third overall in the 2003 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, a lot was expected of the Andre Johnson. And boy has he delivered. The 6'3", 226-pound wide receiver has racked up nearly every franchise receiving record, and is second all-time in receiving yards per game. He’s now a crafty veteran who relies on his 4.35 40 speed and his 41-inch vertical leap to soar past the competition. Johnson also boasts an insanely fit body (he made the 2010 MF 25) that benefits from a rigorous off-season workout regimen (detailed in this Men’s Fitness profile) as well as exercises specifically to help the receiver maintain his pinpoint balance. He’s a gym rat that’s not afraid to mix it up when he has to and, because of that, he’s one of the NFL’s fittest players.
