Jimmy Fallon challenged Jadeveon Clowney to a race in the 40-yard dash.

Guess who won?

A night before becoming the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, Clowney made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon challenged Clowney to a sprint, to which Clowney made a wise decision by declining.

An area was marked in the hallways outside the studio of the Tonight Show for Fallon to take his shot.

Clowney ran a 4.53 at the combined, and he thought Fallon could accomplish the sprint in 5.5 seconds flat.

Fallon’s final time… 6.9 seconds… while wearing a suit.

The two discussed the draft and Fallon asked the question that many people wonder about these athletes before they get drafted.


"Are you a millionaire" Fallon asked.

"Nope, I’m still broke," Clowney replied, fighting back a huge smile. "I still live with my mom."

Don’t worry, Jadeveon… the Texans are about to take care of that.
