Ever wonder Usain Bolt would look like in an NFL uniform? We'll have to settle for his 40-yard dash at the Super Bowl Experience.

Watch for yourself below as the Jamaican sprinter and world record holder in the 100 and 200 meters blasts through the course in 4.22 seconds despite wearing sneakers and sweats and not even looking like he's trying. That time ties John Ross for the fastest ever recorded at the scouting combine.

Imagine what Bolt could do if he warmed up? The 6-foot-5 burner could be a modern-day Renaldo Nehemiah, a world record holder in the hurdles who caught 43 passes over three seasons with the 49ers from 1982-84. Bolt is an eight-time Olympic gold medalist whose 9.58 in the 100 meters makes him the fastest man alive.
