The 25 Fittest Football Players

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

Standing at 6’5”, 251 pounds, Thomas is yet another exceedingly tall, potent receiving threat at the tight end position, something that has become more and more common in the NFL since the early days of the Tony Gonzalez era. Thomas used that size to his advantage en route to an absolute breakout 2013 season, reeling in nearly 800 yards receiving while finding the end zone 12 times. A high school and college basketball star, he somehow reached that level despite never playing high school varsity football, and he didn’t play a single down of college football until his senior year. So, watch out for this 25-year-old player to continue to develop—he has incredible athleticism and likely has more untapped potential than his more-experienced peers.
