Watch Jadeveon Clowney Run 40-Yard Dash

Clowney totally smoked Manziel's time. Suh and Fairley have tossed their Krispy Kremes out the car window and are training round the clock, because wherever Manziel ends up, they want to get to him before Jadeveon does.

Also, Rich Eisen finally broke the 6 second barrier in the 40 as part of the activities. Eisen is not that much slower than Manziel. I wonder if Johnny was sandbagging.

I believe the NFL Network originally developed that technology for this display of human achievement.

Do you ever feel like the day is coming when two NFL players will run into each other at top speed and explode?

Eisen apparently always runs the 40 in a bidness suit, shoes regardless. That must add a good fraction of a second to his time. They should re-tog him in training garb and see how he does.

Eisen's only 44. He looks way older than that. He's probably sat in too many meetings. That'll age a man quicker than just about anything.
