TCU wide receiver Kolby Listenbee, a track All-American, has a game that is all about speed.

The Buffalo Bills hit another big need in the NFL Draft with their selection of wide receiver Kolby Listenbee of TCU with the first of their two sixth-round picks Saturday.

The 6-foot, 197-pound Listenbee is a speedster, running the second-fastest 40-time at the NFL Scouting Combine at 4.39 seconds.

"I could go to the Olympics if I wanted to," he said, while declaring himself the fastest player in the NFL.

In 40 career games at TCU, he caught 74 passes for 1,432 yards and nine touchdowns. He also ran three times for 30 yards and had eight kick returns for 177 yards.

Despite playing most of last season with a double sports hernia, Listenbee had 30 catches for 597 yards and five touchdowns. He said he underwent surgery on the hernia on March 10, and still needed four to six weeks to recover.

Listenbee was a four-time All-American for his performance in the 100-meter dash (which included a wind-aided best of 10.03), and in the 4x100 and 4x400 relays.
