FANTASY FOOTBALL COMBINE REPORT: JADEVEON CLOWNEY RECORDS "INCREDIBLE" 4.53 40

By Eric C. Wright

Indianapolis, IN..-The showcase moment of the 2014 NFL Combine was the Monday 40-yard dash spring by South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and with virtually every single eye in Lucas Oil Stadium watching, the player more than delivered on the hype.  Clowney clocked a rapid 4.53 in the 40 which is lightning quick for a defensive end.  Clowney actually clocked 4.47 and 4.48 before the 4.53 was set as his official time.  There is now no doubt that Clowney is the supreme player in the 2014 NFL Draft and even though the Texans have a clear need for a franchise QB, they would be crazy to pass up this once in a lifetime talent. 

-The Arizona Cardinals are ready to open up the vault for free agent LT Brandon Albert according to a team source.  The Cardinals have constantly been dealing with offensive line issues and the team brass has zeroed in on Albert as the solution to this perennial problem.

-Shonn Greene is expected to be the Tennessee Titans starting RB barring an early draft day addition.  Chris Johnson will get his walking papers any week now.

-Despite coming off an ACL tear, Brian Hoyer is expected to be given first crack at the starting Cleveland Browns' QB job.

-Missouri DE Michael Sam ran an official 4.91 time in the 40.  Despite the massive attention he has been getting, Sam remains a middle round pick who has a limited pass rushing repertoire.

-Notre Dame DT Louis Nix clocked 5.35 and 5.37 times in the 40.  At 330 pounds Nix will be looked at as a pure space eater but questions of his stamina are glaring.

-St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher spoke openly about how interested the team is in trading the number 2 pick.  This tells you that Fisher is not blown away by Clowney which is puzzling for a defensive coach.
