Everyone knows Jadeveon Clowney is one of the most ridiculous athletes in college football. It's a given at this point. People who are that big shouldn't be able to move that quickly and explosively. He's basically a cheat code in pads.
So with all that in mind, the attentive reader probably wouldn't be all that surprised that over the past year, Clowney gained 17 pounds and somehow got faster in the process, according to the annual Freaks List by CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman. Clowney has gone from 257 to 274 pounds in the last year, and his 40-yard dash time has fallen from 4.58 to 4.54 seconds. His strength and conditioning coach, Joe Connolly, described him thusly:
"Clowney is more violent than anybody I've ever seen. There is a violence to his first step. I've never seen anybody with more first-step quickness than he has. He's off the ball while the ball is still in the center's hands. His explosiveness is unparalleled."
Because we're talking about how great Clowney is, here is that one gif that you're probably thinking about looking up. No problem, we're here to help:
