I expect the agility drills to be where he may struggle the most. Not saying he won't have a solid showing there, but it is the one place where he seems the weakest. A little stiff in the hips, which is to be expected for a guy his size.

I doubt they bash him. I've already heard multiple draft analysts say that most folks don't really expect him to run under a 4.5 and that it's not going to effect his status.

Didn't Watkinssay that he would run in the 4.3's. Does he get bashed if that does not happen?

If he runs a sub 4.5 it will be one of the biggest combine stories of all time.

I think he'll run a 4.65

Are you serious?

Have you ever invested in the stock market and read a prospectus?

Past certainly does not predict the future, but it shows averages and trends. If one defensive end in the last 8 NFL combines has been under 4.5 seconds in the 40, who by the way was over 20 lbs lighter, it is pretty safe to say it is not likely to happen.

Certainly not definitive....but I think that's a good answer to your statement.

4.55
Truth be told, the vertical is actually a better indicator of overall athleticism. Don't get caught up.

Would it be illegal for him to take out a big loan, bet the over, sprint 35 yards to show his speed, stop and look around, then cross the line at 5 seconds?

To be fair Clowney is also hyped as a once a decade player, genetic freak, etc. You don't apply trends to somebody with that type of hype the same way you do other players.

Clowney does have great initial explosion which may help him. If he's at peak performance I think he can get close to 4.5

I bet he goes 4.56 in the 40. His bench will probably be 24, his arms are way too long and he's not a gym rat. I think where he will really shine is the agility drills. He'll put on a real show there.

I'm fairly certain that he will run over a 4.5. If anyone cares to bet real money, PM me. Thanks.

Typically, the 40 and the vertical trend linear.

Me too! I'll gladly eat crow (and lose $) if I'm wrong, but alot of people seem to be ignoring logic and reason bc he is one of our own.

See my post about history of DE's in the combine from ESPN data.

6'6, 260+ men do not run under a 4.5 sec 40 yd dash on electronic time. No matter how much of a "Freak" you are. You can't have sprinter form at that height.

PM me for bets.

I completely agree with you that he is a once in a decade player.

Julius Peppers was also a freak. Keep in mind he was athletic enough to play on National Champion Tarheel basketball teams.

His 40 yd dash time at the combine. 4.68 seconds

No PM's yet... 60% of voters think he runs under a 4.5, yet noone willing to place a wager on it?

Valuable opinions here.
