2. Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton: Zapdos
Although diminutive, T.Y. Hilton is one of the most dangerous wide receivers in the NFL. Similar to the legendary Pokémon bird, the 2x Pro Bowler is simply “electric” on the football field with his incredible speed, agility, and deep receiving game.
Zapdos generates electricity when it flaps its majestic wings, and is said to live among the thunderclouds–rarely seen. Opposing cornerbacks probably feel the same way about Hilton, as he blurs past them in coverage en route to the end zone.
Of course, the thunder soon follows the lightning in the form of booming applause, after T.Y. performs his patented touchdown dance.
