We all knew that Jadeveon Clowney was a physical freak, but the South Carolina defensive end blew everyone away on Monday with a blazing fast 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine.

The 6-5, 266-pound Clowney ran the 40 in 4.53 seconds (initially clocked at a 4.47). For perspective, that's faster than any quarterback that ran at the Combine on Sunday and faster than all but one tight end that ran on Saturday. If Clowney was a running back, he would have logged the 14th-fastest time of the group.
