6. DeAngelo Williams

Running back DeAngelo Williams spent the bulk of his career so far on the Carolina Panthers, recently moving over to Pittsburgh. A super fast guy, Williams still holds a state record for the 100 meter dash. He’s just as spry as ever, as only two weeks into his 2016 season, he’d become the league leader in total rushing yards. He’s fast, strong, and a consummate professional, and definitely a person you’d make no mistake in recruiting for a partner in the zombie apocalypse.

What really makes Williams such a strong teammate in a zombie outbreak is his familiarity with the undead. The football star is apparently such a huge fan of The Walking Dead, he even themed his wedding around the show. An entire wedding party were all zombies, just like on the hit AMC show. The newlyweds took photos of their zombified wedding party coming after them, and even put the walker makeup on for themselves.

If someone is a big enough fan of zombie fiction to incorporate it into their wedding day, then they know a thing or two about the living dead. That knowledge would come into use in the event of an outbreak.
