Jadeveon Clowney is a beast. The 6-foot-5 ¼-inch, 266-pound DE from the University of South Carolina shattered expectations by running the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds at the NFL Combine.
How fast is that?
That’s faster than all but six of the RBs at this year’s event. He’s faster than every QB at the Combine since 2006 with the exception of RG III. The 5-yr average of wide receivers at the combine is 4.54. WRs average 202 lbs. Clowney checked in a 266.
Will this performance push him to the top of this year’s draft? Imagine the Houston Texans pass rush with Clowney and J.J. Watt!
