Questions still remain regarding the talent of NFL Draft hopeful Jadeveon Clowney and whether he genuinely is first overall pick in the NFL Draft material.

NFL analyst Gill Brandt has been the latest critic of Clowney despite his impressive showing at the NFL Combine.

The big defensive end has all the skills in the world, but it's his attitude that has created an air of uncertainness around his true quality.

Brandt posted on Twitter Monday saying, "Someone will take Clowney very high in this draft. I'm not sure I'd ever be completely comfortable drafting him." 

Clowney confounded some critics with an epic 40 yard dash at the Combine Monday, with an unofficial 4.47 on the run.

This moment wowed viewers and it certainly startled an onlooking Warren Sapp who was left as a shocked and impressed onlooker.

Before the Combine began the former South Carolina defensive end had already been talked about as a potential number one pick.  

But whether he can jump above a trio of high quality quarterbacks to the top spot remains to be seen. 

One things for sure, his showing today won't hurt him one bit in the eyes of most people. 

Brandt for that matter, it seems he will never be convinced. 

He added later, "I'd be comfortable with Clowney on my roster when he's playing for his second contract."

You can't convince everyone that's for sure.
