Jadeveon Clowney smoked his 40-yard dash times at the NFL Combine with blistering (unofficial) 4.47 and 4.48 runs. Sure, he predicted a 4.4. And yes, the NFL’s unofficial times have been terribly inaccurate this weekend. But ain’t nobody got time for that.
Twitter reacted just as quickly as Clowney ran his 40, and the results were predictably fun. For an early Monday morning, fans and media were quick with the one-liners and memes.
Without further ado, here are some of the best instant reactions over Clowney from Twitter.

Jadeveon Clowney just cast as Quicksilver in Avengers 2. Solid choice.

Jadeveon Clowney’s 4.47 would have made him the 6th fastest RB at the combine.

RT @BFeldmanCBS: Right about now Jadeveon Clowney’s Combine bench press results are seeming about as vital as Kevin Durant’s was.

Jadeveon Clowney did only 21 bench presses, making him worthless to defenses structured around laying down and pushing bodies off them.

I’ll give that Dutch coach this much: Jadeveon Clowney really would make a hell of a speedskater.
