Well, even so, they both beat everyone else on the team, including WR's, in the sprint.
It's quite obvious the faster guys on the team weren't really sprinting. Ginn, VD, Taylor Mays, etc.. are all faster than Willis in a straight sprint, so Willis and Bowman were probably the only ones running at full speed.
And another thing.. I've seen the team do these "sprints" in person, as they end every practice and TC by doing so.. Nobody on the team actually sprints when they do it. It's more like a fast jog at best. So, like I said, Willis and Bowman were likely the only two who actually sprinted.
As for Bowman actually being as fast as Willis, I doubt it. Willis is still recovering from surgery.
