    I recall running a sub 5 in the 40 several years ago. But after about 3 minutes I had to take a water break and I nearly didn't crack it.

    Cripes, Opie.

    Did you see what Clowney just did at his size?

    I will wait for the official.

    But his unofficial 40 time was 4.47.

    His second attempt was 4.48.

    At 6'5 266.

    San Diego ST RB Adam Muema decided to leave the combine early.......

    "Muema said that he was "following God" who told him that his dream of playing for the Seattle Seahawks would come true if he left."

    Not sure about his logic here, but gotta respect a man of his convictions.

    I think the main thing the combines can't measure is instinctual in-game speed. The guys who can't kill the 40 yd dash but who react fast and can anticipate the right timing and positioning on the field.

    Clowney is a career All star NFL player, blue chipper no lose prospect unlike the skill position guys who are generally a bigger roll of the dice. How may high picks have been wasted on diva WR's, mediocre easily replacable RB's, or even bust QB', although the potential upside to drafting a future Manning, Bray, Brees, make it a more justified gamble. I say draft for defense and O linemen, the rest takes care of itself.

    And btw Connor Shaw is a second stringer at best. Listen to how "The Old Football Coach" Spurrier half ass endorses his prospects. I bet he telling his NFL buddies something similar...good kid, can run, but will never lead a team into the playoffs with that arm.

    Spurrier also questioned Clowney's work ethic.

    Clowney is a freak, no doubt.

    But I'm not sure I would select him if my team needed a QB, or LT.

    Bang.

    MeatWad buries Drinker before I even have time to respond.

    Not sure how you can compare Clowney to a QB anyway?

    I like Johnny, but I can assure you I'm not an A&M homer. Not even close.

    Johnny just intrigues the hell out of me. Impossible to say what he'll do from here. My initial feeling is that he won't have a lot of success in the pros, but he's been doubted at every turn. And that never turned out well.....

    Op, I would bet on him failing.

    The NFL is just a different cat. JF's ability to run around and create will not hunt in the NFL. OC's in the NFL prefer structure, discipline. And Manziel's instincts are going to bite him in the ass.

    People compare him to Russell Wilson, but Wilson was a pocket QB at NCST and Wisconsin.

    Like Opie said, Johnny has a big upside. I think he likely does not turn into a big time NFL QB, but how many big time QB's are out there, 4-5 over 15 years of drafting. Also like Opie said, the kids a winner, cocky yeah, but guys like him are motivated to excel, their cockiness makes drives them to achieve.

    I definitely agree with your take on NCAAF running QB's translating into great NFL'ers, a big +1.

    But look closely at Wilson's running stats, over 500 yds average in 2 seasons and over 5+ yds per carry in both seasons. His running also keeps LB's and safeties frozen, enabling him longer time to make reads and passes.

    Yeah, can't rush him into like you could with Luck. Also any QB is 10x better with a quality o-line.

    I know it may surprise some, but Andrew Luck ran a faster 40 than Johnny Manziel.

    Luck is a great athlete.

    The Colts just don't ask him to run because they realize he's the franchise.

    Also, Tom Brady ran something like a 5.2.

    So-- QBs can survive the NFL if they can't run.

    They can't survive if they can't throw it in the pocket.

    I will bet Opie a substantial amount of cash I can run a sub 5.0 40 yd dash.

    It really isn't difficult. I ran a fukking 5.0 when I was like 15 for football, was a little fella back then.

    background:

    22 years young
    Asian
    In supreme athletic condition
    6'0 165 lbs in midst cut
    Consume 150-200g protein daily
    Do cardio 3-4x a week
    Averaging 25.2 PPG in intramurals this year.


    Give me a line, opie.

    4.99 and below I win, 5.0 + you win. I get two attempts.

    To appreciate just how freakish Clowney is---

    His official time is 4.53

    Idc if he ran a 4.33, guy will not be that good..

    All the intangibles, not the head or work ethic.

    Jamarcus Russell could throw a fukking ball 70+ yards on ONE KNEE, that's fukking amazing. Idk if Tom Brady could even throw 70 yards.... Let's all not get ahead of ourselves.
