Thumbs up How Bout a: 6'5 - 262 lb - Defensive End Running 4.48 in the 40yd Dash!

This kid is something special right here damnit! He is gonna TERRORIZE the field next year on some NFL team. And he may get selected #1 overall First Round in this years Draft: Jadeveon Clowney

Watch Jadeveon Clowney Run 40-Yard Dash at NFL Scouting Combine | Bleacher Report

Here is a morphed video of how he would look running against Johnny Football who also posted a respectable: 4.68



This years NFL Draft is quite deep! I've been watching it daily on the NFL Network.

I still think these guys should be performing all drills in pads...yes they are fast and atheletic without, but I would be more curious to see how they move in full pads...just sayin...

How's his field vision? His ability to fill the lane? Tackling ability?

These combine test are nice physical test, but so many players who have had impressive combines have come and gone.

Jerry Rice ran a 4.7 40 yard dash btw.

another great point...if his football iq is crap, it's all for not...

but you gotta have good physically and mentally to succeed....

but too much emphasis on speed and strength the last couple of years IMO

so a football player can run fast where it's damn near a requirement to be a fast player...

cool...

I bet that lead to a ton of sacks and sick tackles last year

what !?!? he only had 3 sacks all year !?!?

well, then he must be a solid work horse and elite competitor....

what !?!? his coaches and other prominent league officials think he's lazy !?!?


Texans going with JAWNY FOOTBAW with the first pick - don't believe me just watch....

He was also chronically injured during his junior year. Not a good sign for a potential #1 draft pick.

Those of you who keep up with and have monitored the game over the last 5yrs or so particularly, know that the game is speeding up considerably! He has the tangibles that teams/coaches covet. Trust me.
No human is perfect. But for his stature he is a beast and I can't see him going less than #3 overall.
We shall see...

Clowney quit on his team last year to protect his draft status.

A physical freak of nature for sure though.

hes an absolute monster, at that size being able to run that fast is incredible. Texans most likely will take manziel but watt and clowney would be insane

He's the new definition of "THE FREAK", a name once given to Jevon Kearse. In college, he was truly a man among boys.
