Scouting the Draft: Top 5 Defensive Ends
Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina Strengths Clowney's official 40-time was clocked in at 4.53 seconds which was faster than 26 wide Receivers. Yes, I said 26 wide receivers. Keep in mind Clowney is a towering 6-foot-5 266 pounds defensive end. His 40 yard time is absolutely astronomical, setting the bar for Defensive Lineman running the 40. Clowney, often regarded as the best defensive prospect since Julius Peppers of the 2002 Draft, ran .15 seconds faster than "The Freak of Nature" Peppers himself. Adding to the fact that Clowney came in 14 pounds leaner than during the season, he also is now the record holder for a defensive lineman running a 40. When superimposing Manziel's impressive 4.68 40 time over Clowney's, Clowney left Johnny Football in the dust. In the age of the duel threat quarterback, Clowney's burst off the line can provide immediate relief to times troubled with facing mobile quarterbacks. If anything, it's safe to say Johnny Manziel won't be evading Clowney anywhere...
