Nike Video Displays Jacoby Ellsbury’s Freakish Athleticism, Speed and Strength

Nike Video Displays Jacoby Ellsbury's Freakish Athleticism, Speed and Strength Jacoby Ellsbury is one of the game's most gifted athletes.

Members of Red Sox Nation have been spoiled rotten with his exciting plays, dazzling catches and lightning-fast speed since his arrival in 2007.

For baseball fans unable to witness Ellsbury's skills on a nightly basis, the 26-year-old left fielder put his freakish talents on display in a recent Nike shoot.

Ellsbury posted a 38.5-inch vertical leap, which was the exact same height that Gators quarterback Tim Tebow posted at last week's NFL combine. That result would have placed him in a tie for fourth place among running backs as well.

Perhaps his most impressive feat was his 3.94 "5-10-5" agility shuttle, also referred to as the 20-yard shuttle. This shuttle time would have topped the list at last weekend's NFL combine, besting cornerback A.J. Jefferson's top time of 4.00 seconds flat.

Ellsbury also ran a 3.56 30-yard dash, and notched a 65-foot powerball throw.
