Jadeveon Clowney Officially Clocks a 4.53-Second 40


Jadevoen Clowney’s official results from the 40-yard dash have returned and it is not as awesome as the 4.47-seconds that was reported earlier, but it is still an impressive 4.53-second sprint. Clowney is gifted athletically and showed it during the 40 times.

There will be some questions about his strength though. Clowney only beched 21 reps at 225 and I am sure that plenty of people will over analyze that. There are plenty of players that did not have impressive showings on the bench that went on to play some terrific football. Clowney will have to prove that he will be one of those players as well.

Clowney wants to be the top pick in the draft. The Houston Texans are looking at possible quarterbacks for the season, but Clowney will do anything he can in order to make them think twice about that. Will his performance in the NFL Combine be enough for him to take that top spot i nthe draft?
