2014 NFL Scouting Combine: Jadeveon Clowney runs 4.53 40-yard dash

South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney had previously stated that it was his goal to run the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds.

While Clowney ran the forty in less than 4.5 in both of his runs unofficially, his offical 40 time was 4.53, which was the fastest among the group.

On Sunday, Auburn's Dee Ford said he was a better prospect than Clowney and described him as a "a blind dog in a meat market."

With the defensive linemen on the field today, Ford was unable to run due to medical reasons.

"I feel fine. Everything is fine. It's what they call a medical precaution that they wanted to go through, and they don't want to risk anything here," Ford said (via NFL.com). "So I had the medical exclusion. It's very unfortunate. I'm very disappointed. I came to really compete in this combine but, you know, it's all good. I'm still going to stay here and support my peers."

Here are the top 15 performances among defensive linemen today in the 40-yard dash:

1. Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina: 4.53
2. Larry Webster, Bloomsburg: 4.58
3. Howard Jones, Shepherd: 4.60
4. Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas: 4.63
5. Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh: 4.68
5. Marcus Smith, Louisville: 4.68
7. James Gayle, Virginia Tech: 4.70
