Clowney vows to put on an “amazing” Scouting Combine


Top prospects often decline to run at the Scouting Combine, but South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney says he plans to put on a show.

Clowney likely would have been the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft if not for the NFL’s rule requiring players to be at least three years out of high school before entering the draft. And although his draft stock may have slipped slightly in the last year, he is still considered a very high pick this year. And Clowney told Josh Kendall of The State that he wants to cement his status as a top pick, so he will participate in all drills at the Combine, where he expects to light it up.

“The numbers I am going to put up are going to be amazing,” Clowney said.

Clowney is listed at 6-foot-6 and 274 pounds and claims he can run a 4.46-second 40-yard dash. If Clowney can do that at the Combine, it really would be amazing.
