It isn’t just football fans who are in amazement at the 40-yard dash time Jadeveon Clowney put up at the NFL Combine Monday. Even some NFL players are in awe. Check out what Baltimore Ravens wideout Torrey Smith tweeted out earlier today. For the record, Smith ran a 4.43 second 40-yard dash back in 2011.
Clowney almost ran the same 40 time as me ….he is to big to be that gifted haha bet he can’t catch me on Sunday

But as you can see, Smith still doesn’t think Clowney will be able to catch him on Sundays. While I doubt the two are ever going to line up against each other pre-snap, perhaps they’ll find each other in the open field at some point. Smith would be wise to try and avoid that kind of situation.
