Would the Arizona Cardinals win an All-NFL race?

If every team put together a 4x100 team, would the Cardinals win?

One thing we know about Bruce Arians is that he absolutely loves speed.

He makes it a habit of every draft finding one of, if not the fastest players available for the Cardinals, without ever really breaking the bank.

It is one thing that Arians and company have put a continued focus on each and every offseason.

So when Oakland Raiders punter, Marquette King asked the question of what NFL team would win a 4x100 relay, it makes sense to feel like the Cardinals would be a favorite.

Who would be the four man team?

We know J.J. Nelson would be in it, he ran a 4.28 40 at the NFL Combine, John Brown was a 4.34, Brandon Williams and T.J. Logan both ran 4.37 40’s.

That would be a nice group, but we are forgetting the man who would run the final leg, at least in my group and that would be soon the be 27 year old Patrick Peterson, who ran a 4.31 at the combine.

I think my final four would be relegated to players who have already been on the team, even though it's almost a given Logan, if healthy, makes the final 53.

Do you think the Arizona Cardinals would win an all-NFL 4x100?
