Phenom Jadeveon Clowney blew away scouts and NFL personnel today when the defensive end posted an unheard of 40-yard dash time, clocking in at 4.53 – faster than many running backs.
Needless to say, the performance was extremely impressive – and apparently slightly terrifying, at least according to the facial expression on Hall of Fame defender Warren Sapp.
The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers talent was working the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine for NFL Network and watched Clowney streak down the sideline at an epic pace. His reaction said it all:
I’m not sure how one would describe that look.
It seems to be a combination of horror, excitement, terror and disbelief all wrapped into one.
Players at the size of Clowney aren’t supposed to be that fast – it’s fact or something. So watching Clowney blow everybody away, well, needless to say Sapp probably wasn’t the only one to have such a look on his face.
While there are still some questions about his ‘passion’, it’s clear Clowney physically is ready for the NFL.
