Jadeveon Clowney got his chance to run on Monday at the NFL Scouting Combine and the results were … impressive.
Clowney ran an official time of 4.53 in the 40-yard dash, which is the fastest in his position group. Heck, he ran a faster time than star quarterback Johnny Manziel. Check out both of his runs below:
Not too shabby. Clowney’s run was so good, it amazed NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp. Check out his reaction (courtesy of Bleacher Report):
However, when it came to the bench press, Clowney was less-than-impressive. The big man (measured in at 6-5 and 266 pounds) did just 21 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Sure, that’s a lot for average people like me, but for defensive linemen, that’s a low number. There were 36 people in Clowney’s position group who did more on the bench. In fact, even punter Pat O’Donnell did 23 reps on Friday.
