Jadeveon Clowney

I've Never Seen Anyone Run Like Him

Says Olympic Sprinter

2/24/2014 8:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0224-maurice-jadeveon-getty-01Jadeveon Clowney's INCREDIBLE 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine didn't just impress the football community -- it blew away an Olympic sprinting legend who tells TMZ Sports he's never seen anything like it.

In case you haven't heard, Clowney -- who weighs 266 pounds -- ran a blazing fast 4.47 ... faster than almost ALL of the running backs at the combine.

We spoke to Maurice Green -- the former 100 meter dash record holder -- who tells us plain and simple -- "Jadeveon is a freak athlete."

Green -- who trains a bunch of NFL stars including Richard Sherman and Reggie Bush -- says, "You don't get too many guys with his size and speed. Guys like Jadeveon don't come around that often. If I was a QB in the NFL I'd be worried."

Still, Green says he'd destroy Clowney in a footrace -- "My best 40 time was 3.8."

That's fast.

He can run fast but can he hit? Will he give 100 percent on every play? The jury is still out on this guy, he could be serious trouble when he gets that first million dollar paycheck. If I were a betting man I would say he is going to wash out in the NFL.

Jadeveon.... Could his mom not decide on one name so she combined two?
