Reggie McKenzie on hand for impressive Jadeveon Clowney Pro Day

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pro Days continued today with pass rushing dynamo, Jadeveon Clowney getting his shot to impress the NFL. And impress he did. For the Raiders, it was Reggie McKenzie himself who was on hand to witness it.

As has happened at several other impressive Pro Days such as those by Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel, analysts immediately began talking number one overall pick.

NFL Network draft analyst, Mike Mayock sang Clowney's praises as a "special, special talent" and said he could go to the Texans with the top pick but definitely not escape the top three picks. This is coming from Mayock who has said he liked Khalil Mack better, mainly because of concerns of Clowney's work ethic.

His NFL.com draft analyst colleague, Daniel Jeremiah, called Clowney's workout "phenomenal".

A workout like this is expected from a physical talent like Clowney. What makes it all the more impressive is he did it on with a nagging groin pull. He was still able to do all that was asked of him better than most prospects on a healthy groin, but you could tell he was being very careful with it.

His ability to leap seven bags in the broad jump was notable but each time he did the jump, he wouldn't land solid, but instead let his momentum carry him into a run so as not to risk injury to his groin.

He is a pass rusher first and foremost and was as advertised in those drills. Some teams run the 3-4 and were interested in seeing him drop into coverage. He was a bit stiff dropping back but certainly showed he wouldn't be a serious liability.

As would be expected, there was a considerable turnout at the Pro Day with what is said to have been representatives from every NFL team. The Texans had nearly their entire staff there trying to gather information to decide what to do with that top overall pick.

Glad I'm not the one who has to make that decision.
